Water activities of all types are regularly enjoyed at Lake Blackshear. For boaters, everything from gas boats to kayaks is allowed; however, be careful around the designated no-wake zones. There are also a number of public access boat ramps and refueling areas located around the lake.
Lake Blackshear is also a good place for anglers. Here they can find a variety of species of bass, sunfish, crappie, perch, and catfish. Anglers can fish from shore, on boats, or off of the various piers that are around the lake.
An interesting feature of Lake Blackshear is the old cypress stumps left behind from the construction of the nearby dam. These are great spots for fishing but pose a potential threat to boaters.
