Anglers, boaters and lake enthusiasts all recognize Lake Blackshear as a little bit of paradise. This 8,700-acre lake is well stocked with bass, bream, crappie and catfish on a classic Southern impoundment, complete with cypress flats, flooded timber and all the hidden coves and secret fishing holes that make the experience one of a kind. With its miles of shoreline surrounded by wooded areas, the lake was created in 1930 by the damming of the Flint River. Designed to provide low-cost power to the citizens of Crisp County, today Lake Blackshear is also a magnificent recreational spot, perfect as a back drop for all of your family fun.
Launching your boat is quick and easy, as Lake Blackshear has its own Marina with a large ramp and free parking- including free overnight parking for your boat. No boat, no problem! The Marina offers a full array of rental boats including: pontoon boats that can accommodate up to 12 guests, jet skis, and two person kayaks, as well as the 50 passenger touring vessel, Lady Liberty.
Best of all, the Marina is a favorite gathering place to share those stories of ‘the one that got away.’ After a day of fishing relax at the Cypress Grill for casual dockside dining, or Eighty Eights for a beer, wine or cocktail.
The Marina is open seasonally. The Cypress Gill and Eighty Eights are open seasonally.
For more information call: 229-273-7747 or 229-276-1004.
The marina is right on site and you can rent boats and jet skis! We enjoyed renting a pontoon boat and cruising around the lake for a few hours!
The Marina is within walking distance to the Lodge and Villas and is a very short ride from cabins and camping.
We thoroughly enjoyed our two hour boat rental, which let us explore much of the beautiful lake.
