Camp Safety PatrolHere begins "Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park." This 1,200 acre tract of land was purchased by Crisp County Commissioners and given to the State of Georgia December 4, 1946 in grateful appreciation of, and as a living memorial to the devotion to duty, the heroic service and unselfish sacrifice of Georgia War Veterans. This memorial lies shielded and almost surrounded by Lake Blackshear, formed by the backwaters of the Crisp County Hydroelectric Power Dam, the first county owned, constructed and operated hydroelectric power project in the United States.
