Although this is primarily for generating electricity, Lake Hartwell is a beautiful recreational lake. When it's full, it can't be beat.

USED to be able to tour the dam, even inside. But since 911 no more inside. It's a shame because THAT'S impressive!!

Lake Hartwell is a very large lake with lots of recreational activities, such as boating, fishing, water sports, etc. The lake levels are currently down due to the drought in SC. Some boat ramps are closed, so check beforehand. The water is not as clear as other lakes north of Hartwell.

Lake Hartwell is a huge recreational lake on the border of GA and SC. Fishing, camping, boating, and skiing abound. There is a fabulous fireworks display during the Pre-4th Extraveganza which takes place the weekend before the July 4th holiday.
