We would like to share a brief synopsis of our beautiful Lake Blackshear.
In the mid 1980's, Lake Blackshear Watershed Association was formed by concerned members of the Crisp County Power Commission, industries, and some concerned lLake Blackshear residents to study and monitor water condition and quality of Lake Blackshear. The Lake Blackshear Home Owners' Association was formed in the late '90's to monitor needs and to address the concerns of the Lake Blackshear home owners. Both of these associations are very active in our Lake Blackshear area and would like to invite any Lake Blackshear resident participation. You may contact our office for further information.
Since the creation of Lake Blackshear it has become the most popular recreational and fishing lake in Southwest Georgia. Along Lake Blackshear banks are many lovely homes, both full-time and weekend. Weekend and resident skiers and boaters turn its water, and fisherman fish the backwaters among the picture-perfect moss draped trees. Lake Blackshear offers the best of both worlds, both recreational and fishing activities creating the feeling "of being on vacation year around." In the early 1970's the area south of the 280 Bridge was cleared of most of the stumps and debris allowing for the recreational use of this area of Lake Blackshear while maintaining the north end of Lake Blackshear as a natural habitat for wildlife and fishing.
One of the most desirable factors of Lake Blackshear is the approximately 1300 acre Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park and Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club which is located about halfway between the dam and the back waters of the Flint River. This most frequently visited State Park features a 18 hole golf course, overnight lodging, cabins, restaurants, conference center, swimming pool, beach nature trails, historical museum, marina and an excursion train ride to historical sites such as "Jimmy Carter Country" in Plains, and other stops along the way.
To complete your Lake Blackshear experience our great area offers the comfort and convenience of fine dining, great churches, near by shopping, and historical sites. We would like to invite you to become part of this fast growing resort area and to experience the greatest and the warmest feature of all, "The wonderful Lake Blackshear residents and community"!!
