Lake Hartwell

One of the most popular lakes in the southeast, Lake Hartwell sits on the South Carolina-Georgia state line. The second U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reservoir to be built on the Savannah River, Lake Hartwell has 56,000 acres of water and is surrounded by over 23,000 acres of public land. Lake Hartwell is a fishing hotspot due to outstanding opportunities to catch three species of black bass, striped and hybrid bass, black crappie, and bream. Other recreational opportunities include camping, hunting, and boating.
