We were here a few weeks ago just to lay on the grass by the lake and relax. It was quiet and peaceful but that will change as it gets hotter. It's not a state Park anymore. No lifeguard on duty. The bottom of the lake is rocky and you sink in mud. Red Georgia clay. There is a boat... More

Pros: the sites are great, waterfront sites are actually waterfront with access to the lake. The sites are level which makes it easy for families with RVs. Walmart is... More

It's always fun to camp on Lake Hartwell. Hart State Park has great amenities. You can walk or bike around the park. Our kids ski, kayak or swim. We always have a great time

The park is ideal for swimming, boating, water skiing, and fishing on Lake Hartwell - a 50,000 plus acre reservoir. There are many picnic tables, children's playground, campsites, etc. The only disadvantage is a 90 minutes drive from Atlanta, mostly on Interstate 85.

Most sites are waterfront. You can tie your boat to the shore for easy access. Five minutes from town.
