Established as a memorial to U.S. veterans, this park features a museum with aircraft (including a Boeing B-29A), armored vehicles, uniforms, weapons, medals and other items from the Revolutionary War through the Gulf War.  An 18-hole golf course and pro shop, along with 8,700-acre Lake Blackshear and proximity to I-75, make this one of Georgia’s most popular state parks.
A sandy swimming beach is the perfect place to cool off during Georgia summers. The Lake Blackshear Resort and Golf Club is a professionally operated conference center with 78 lodge rooms, 10 cottages and 2 restaurants. The SAM Shortline Excursion Train runs through the park on its way from Cordele to Plains, allowing riders to see an antique telephone museum, Habitat for Humanity’s Global Village, President Jimmy Carter’s boyhood farm and other attractions along the journey.

Weekend Programs
The Park offers a variety of programs such as museum tours, nature hikes, and bird watching. Please call the Park Office for more complete information.
