Georgia Veterans State Park

Georgia Veterans State Park
Established as a memorial to U.S. veterans, this park features a museum with aircraft, armored vehicles, uniforms, weapons, medals, and other items from the Revolutionary through Gulf Wars. Visitors can spend the day or longer exploring the area by land or lake.

The SAM Shortline Excursion Train also 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. The 18-hole golf course and pro shop, along with 8,600-acre Lake Blackshear, make this one of Georgia's most popular state parks.

Lake Blackshear Resort and Golf Club is located on the Central and Western portion of the Park.
