Lake Hartwell

One of the Southeast's largest and most popular public recreation lakes, Lake Hartwell was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers between 1955 and 1963 as part of a flood control and hydropower project. The nearly 56,000 acres of water provide many recreation opportunities. There are numerous natural sand beaches along the 962-mile shoreline in addition to campgrounds, recreation areas and boat access areas. Hartwell borders Georgia and South Carolina on the Savannah, Tugaloo and Seneca Rivers.
