Georgia Veterans State Park reviews
We were staying at the Resort for just one night and one of the reasons we picked the resort was because there are nice walking trails and this memorial. We were not disappointed - would visit again.

Have really enjoyed staying at both the cabins and the campground at Georgia Veterans State Park over the years. Nice open areas throughout the park to do about anything you can imagine. Camp sites are large with lots of space between sites so you don't feel crowded. The sites on the lower loop all have nice views of the lake and almost all have nice shade for those hot summer months. If they had full hookups, I'd give them a 5. However, there are 2 dump sites which are nice with easy access. Highly recommended.
Nice state park but camping prices are way too high. In my opinion the campground is not part of the resort. Love the history of this place and taking the boat out on the lake. Wish they would host more kid friendly events
