Hartwell Dam & Lake

Lady and girl grilling  

At Hartwell lake, one of our most popular outdoor recreation activities is camping. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages 8 campgrounds at Hartwell Lake with approximately 500 campsites.

Many of these campgrounds feature amenities such as restrooms, showers, boat ramps, sanitary disposal stations, playgrounds, electric and water hook-ups, courtesy docks, group camping, and designated swimming areas. Six of the campgrounds feature resident park attendants who register incoming campers, provide information, and ensure the campground is operated to provide the safest, most enjoyable experience for all visitors.

One Corps managed Group Camp is available at Hartwell Lake - Crescent Campground. Group camping allow clubs, families, and friends to camp together in a common area for a reasonable fee.
