Lake Blackshear is a man-made lake on the Flint River in Georgia created by a dam that was constructed in the late 1920s. When the dam was constructed, little to no effort was made to cut the trees that would be covered by water, leaving many living Cypress trees in the middle of the lake and there are still many dead trees that have not fallen down.

The Georgia Veterans State Park is located on the east side of the lake. Located in the middle of the Park is Lake Blackshear Resort & Golf Club.
