There is a small but nice beach for swimming, with a bathhouse for changing, not far from the marina.
Another big attraction to the park is the 8700 acre Lake Blackshear which offers a variety of water related recreation to include: boating, fishing, and swimming. It is also relaxing to just sit and look at the water and listen to the sounds of the lake.
Just down the road from the Visitors Center/Veterans Museum is a Monument to those who have served and died for their country.
The Cypress Grill at Lake Blackshear Resort and Golf Club is South Georgia's entertainment capital, combining the best in live music and comedy, unique casual dining and a relaxing lakeside view with the atmosphere of an upscale resort. Set in a natural environment on the shores of beautiful Lake Blackshear, the Cypress Grill is the perfect backdrop for outdoor dining on the patio, cocktails with friends, or dancing the night away to great live music from well known bands.

The SAM Short Line train runs through the park on its Cordele to Plains run. Enjoy a nostalgic trip in the 1949 railroad cars. Attractions accessible by taking the train include: Historic sites, museums, the habitat for humanity, and the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site.
Boating is very popular on the lake. Please pay attention to the parts of the lake set aside as “No Wake” areas. There is a fully equipped marina to cater to all your boating needs.
