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. A valid state fishing license is required and can be purchased at the Visitors Center.
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.
With a spacious boat launch, getting on the water is fast and easy at the Marina at Lake Blackshear. Whether you are fishing or boating, bringing your own boat or renting one onsite, you can hit the lake without the hassle.
Enhance your lake resort experience by turning a weekend family getaway into a memorable water adventure. Enjoy some of the best and most accessible boat rentals in Georgia, which are available to both Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club visitors and guests.

The marina is right on site and you can rent boats! 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.
