Fourteen of Lake Hartwell’s 962 miles of shoreline are included within this park, a popular destination for boaters, fishermen and campers who enjoy easy access to the lake. With its location on S.C. 11 just off I-85, Lake Hartwell State Recreation Area also serves as a gateway to the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway and South Carolina’s mountain country. An impressive collection of fishing equipment is on display in the park’s information center. Modern-day fishermen, meanwhile, can attest to Lake Hartwell’s reputation for top-flight angling for sought-after species such as striped bass, hybrid bass, largemouth, crappie, bream and catfish.
