Family Summer Vacations and Activities on Lake Blackshear
Browsing vacation ideas and nothing seems to fit? Soar through the last part of summer at Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club in Cordele, Georgia. This destination is perfect for the whole family and all their varying interests. With so many amazing activities, every member of the family can find what they are longing for, whether it’s adventure, relaxation, or inspiration.
Fishing, Boating, and Time Together
Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club, located inside Georgia Veterans State Park offers great fishing and premier boating opportunities. Skip rocks from the banks, cast a line, or load up the entire family in one of our pontoon boats for a picnic in the middle of the lake.
Are you planning a family reunion? Rent a pontoon boat, or two, for a one-of-a-kind floating get-together. Or bring your own water craft to launch from our boat ramp. Then return to one of the Southeast’s most popular lake resorts to rest up for the next day’s adventure.
Maybe you are trying to sneak in one more weekend family getaway before school starts. In addition to being an ideal reunion resort, Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club is one of the most fantastic fishing resorts in Georgia. The lake is well-stocked with bass, bream, crappie and catfish, and full of hidden coves and secret fishing holes.
Grab your gear, your favorite fishing buddy, and your valid state fishing license – which can be purchased at the Georgia Veteran’s State Park Visitors Center – and enter this family-friendly angler’s paradise.
Tee Timing is Key
One of the best ways to enjoy Georgia Veterans Memorial Golf Course is to hit the links Sunday through Thursday. You’ll find less traffic and great golf packages. Some packages offer unlimited golf for weekday stays.
This amazing Georgia golf course belongs on every golfer’s bucket list. Only an hour from Macon and a short two hours from Atlanta, guests can turn an uneventful weekday into an exciting, and affordable, golf expedition.
Aim for Fun at the Archery and Air Rifle Range
Another fresh family reunion idea is to plan a gathering at the 4-acre Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park Archery and Air Gun Range. The Range has 3 sections, all of which are ADA Accessible.
The marksmen – and women – of your group can hone their skills at the Static Archery Range, the Air Gun Range, and the 3-D Archery Range. Programs, equipment rental and training are available for groups and individuals. Bring your family closer than ever through this team-building adventure
Live Music on the Water
After a day on the boat, on the golf course, around a fishing hot spot, or on the archery and air rifle range, settle in for a few of the best ways to celebrate summer – savoring classic Americana food, being on the water, and enjoying live music. Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club’s Summer Concert Series runs Thursday through Sunday at the Cypress Grill with rotating live music acts, fun DJs, and karaoke nights. Unwind, dance, and sing along to music across genres, from Country to Rock to R&B.
