• River: Savannah River
• Surface Area: 56,000 Acres
Lake Hartwell is a reservoir bordering Georgia and South Carolina and is created by Hartwell Dam. As one of the southeast's largest and most popular recreation lakes, it is located on the Savannah River seven miles below the point at which the Tugaloo and Seneca Rivers join to form the Savannah. Extending 49 miles up the Tugaloo and 45 miles up the Seneca at normal pool elevation, the lake comprises nearly 56,000 acres of water with a shoreline of 962 miles. The entire Hartwell "Project" contains 76,450 acres of land and water. I-85 bisects Hartwell Lake and makes the area easily accessible to visitors. Lake Hartwell was named for the American Revolutionary War figure Nancy Hart. One of the most popular activities at Lake Hartwell is fishing. In fact, the 2008 Bassmaster Classic was held at Lake Hartwell. The lake is a good fishing habitat for many species. Bream, catfish, smallmouth bass, walleye, and large mouth bass are naturally occurring species in the lake, but the most popular fishing is for striped bass. Many 60+ lb. fish have been caught on Lake Hartwell, with 20 lb. fish being common. The majority of striped bass caught on the lake will range from 5 to 12 pounds. There are multiple lake houses and docks and boating, water skiing, and fishing are popular activities on Lake Hartwell.
