Lake Hartwell is a 56,000 acre reservoir built and operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers for flood control and hydroelectric power production. Hartwell is the 4th most popular lake in South Carolina with several state parks and numerous lake businesses along its shoreline. Lake Hartwell is located on the western border between Georgia and South Carolina. It was built in the 1960's by damming the Savannah River. The US Army Corps of Engineers has built numerous recreation areas and boat ramps along the shoreline.

There are plenty of marinas, campgrounds, and state parks along the shores of this massive reservoir. Because Lake Hartwell is crossed by I-85, it is easily accessible from many areas in South Carolina. Also, visitors from Atlanta GA or Charlotte NC can visit Lake Hartwell within a couple of hours or less.
