Long before the U.S Army Corps of Engineers decided to create this great lake, the Cherokee Indians roamed, hunted and fished on the shores of the Tugaloo and the upper Savannah Rivers.  Today, visitors from around the world come to explore Lake Hartwell. Whether you come in search of the "Big One", an early morning ride across the mist covered lake, or a peaceful afternoon gazing at the sunset shadowed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, a visit to Lake Hartwell will be one you want to experience again and again.

  Located on I-85,  2 hours from Atlanta, GA, 2 hours from Charlotte, NC, or 1 hour from Greenville,SC, Lake Hartwell boasts nearly 56,000 acres of water, 962 miles of shoreline, and  80 public access areas making it one of the easiest lakes in the nation to enjoy. Stretching 50 miles from the foothills of the Appalachian mountains to the piedmont and the head of the Savannah river, the diversity of Lake Hartwell offers something for everyone. Accommodations are plentiful including hundreds of campsites, vacation rental homes, state park cabins, and nearby motels.
