Lake Hartwell State Park
The Upcountry & Lake Hartwell Country
The lakefront park’s information center displays a wide variety of vintage fishing equipment. And, of course, 56,000-acre Lake Hartwell maintains a reputation for top-flight angling, including for striped and hybrid bass, largemouth, crappie, bream and catfish.
In addition to lake access, there is a park store, hiking, camping and unique, affordable one-room camper cabins. They feature bunk beds, a porch and electricity but no running water or bathrooms. The campground facilities are nearby.
Lake Hartwell State Park is located just off Interstate 85 at the South Carolina-Georgia border and also serves as a gateway to South Carolina’s mountain country on the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Highway (S.C. 11).
