Lake Hartwell State Park

Lake Hartwell State Park is located in Oconee County, SC on the South Carolina/Georgia border and was created in 1976. The park has 680 acres with 14 miles of shoreline on Lake Hartwell. Lake Hartwell covers 56,000 acres. There are two boat ramps that are accessible to the public.

There is also a playground, basketball court, picnic area, camping, and a hiking trail. Two cabins can be rented. A park store/gift shop is also to buy necessary items or gifts.

This park mainly focuses on water sports like boating and fishing. You can swim but you swim at your own risk because there are no lifeguards on duty. You might catch largemouth bass, crappie, bream, stripers, hybrid bass, or catfish in the lake but make sure you have a South Carolina fishing license.

You can also do birdwatching and geocaching here.

If you like boating and fishing, this would be a good park to check out.
