  • Georgia Veterans Memorial SP - Cordele, Ga

    We have been here since Tuesday and it is one of my new favorites. Lots of interesting things around and the CG is just beautiful. Hope to post some pictures.

    This is the view from our living room.

    That's a nice looking lake Norty. Got those kayaks off the roof? Just looked through the photo gallery on their web site. If I was already retired I'd come join you. You guys are making my last year of work so difficult.

      Kayaks are ready. Dinner is in the crock pot and we are awaiting arrival of our friends we met on this forum, geo and his wife for a great weekend.

      There is a Telephone museum near here that we are going to look through in a while. I hope to get to Andersonville tomorrow.

      This park is has cable but no sewer. Clear view of southern sky. Good 50a and 30a at each site. Lake is 8400 acres. 77 sites, about 25 on the water. only 12-15 rigs here now.

      If you are a vet and over 62 the rate is less than $23. I bought a annual park pass for $25 that came with a free night camping or a round of golf. You can guess which I choose. Great deal in Ga. parks.

        We can feel your pain. That last year of working was really hard.

          Call ahead to the Telephone Museum...You can have a tour guide, and then spend time looking around on your own. The day we showed up was not a tour guide day, but someone from the telephone company came from across the street to take us through anyway.

          Do something fun after Andersonville. It's a very powerful museum, but not uplifting, for obvious reasons. The inside covers POW's from the Revolutionary War through the present. Then you can walk the grounds.

          Georgia Vet Memorial Pk is a great park too. If you don't want/need to be by the water, there is another loop across the road. At the right time of year, you will have access to all the blackberries you can eat.

          All this talk about food!

            We toured the museum yesterday, it was great. Only thing is some the equipment that I was trained on late in my career were on display in the museum.

            We went to Andersonville today and are going back tomorrow as they are having the annual Living history weekend. The POW exhibits were sobering. We ate a late lunch at Yoders Mennonite resturant. Yummm.

            There is to much to see here in the week we are here. This is on the return list.

                We visited Andersonville on Friday and found out that they were having the annual Living History weekend Sat and Sun. We were there bright and early most of Saturday. Pics:

                    Striplings Sausage and General Store

                    If you are ever at this CG, do not miss the fresh cut meat and fresh made sausage. Right across from the entrance to the SP.

                    We have been eating homemade sausage and have the freezer full of meat for the trip home. Yummy

                      norty,
                      If you go back, and want a great steak, try the Daphne Lodge restaurant about 5 miles west of Cordele.

                            Great Campground would most definitely return. Right now they're offer 1/2 price a night was nice surprise. We already had reservation at another campground or we would have stayed longer.
