Amazing water
Jun 2021
We rented a home with a pontoon for three days. I can't say enough nice things about the water. We were able to enjoy our premade lunch at one of the private island beaches. Boat traffic is minimal and we really enjoyed this lake.

What a cool place to visit
Oct 2020
The visitor center was closed so we took a walk to the dam. It is 2.75 miles round trip on a level paved walkway from the center to the dam itself.

Lake Hartwell Villas 8A UGH
Sep 2020
Lake Hartwell Villas 8A UGH Ants in half bath got into my personal items, roaches in full bath and kitchen, shower curtain needs replacement, light in living room broken, musty odor and worse on back porch, and bed in master bedroom sinks in middle and plywood under mattress does not help.

Great For Boating
Aug 2020
Lake Hartwell is a great lake for boating. There are many excellent boat ramps, lots of coastline and coves, and bridges that are easy to get under with a pontoon with the sunshade up.

Huge lake with lots of shore line and islands to explore. The lower lake has big water and is good for sailing.

A great family lake
Feb 2020
I started visiting Lake Hartwell in the mid to early 90s. We rented a number of places and stayed for a week or so each summer. We drove up for the day dozens of times a year, pulling our boat with us.

We drove 90 miles each way from Atlanta. Consider that we drove past lake Lanier and then quite a distance more... Hartwell is a much calmer place than Lanier. Most boaters on Hartwell are courteous and friendly... That's not the case on some other lakes.

Hartwell is a huge place with about 1500 miles of shoreline. That translates into many many coves where you can find some calm water to just rest, or some smooth water to ski. It also means that you can travel for hours to get away from places you have seen and go explore areas of the lake that are remote...

Eventually we built a vacation home that we used for 15 years on weekends. When I retired we left Atlanta and moved to the lake. We have sold the vacation place and now have our permanent residence on the lake near Anderson SC.

Surrounded by trees and little paths around the lake you can enjoy fishing, swimming, and water sports.
