Lake Hartwell State Recreation Area is a park focused on fishing. The lakefront parks information center displays a wide variety of vintage fishing equipment. And, of course, 56,000-acre Lake Hartwell maintains a reputation for top-flight angling, including for striped and hybrid bass, largemouth, crappie, bream and catfish. In addition to lake access, there is a park store, hiking, camping and unique, affordable one-room camper cabins. They feature bunk beds, a porch and electricity but no running water or bathrooms. The campground facilities are nearby. Lake Hartwell State Recreation Area is located just off Interstate 85 at the South Carolina-Georgia border and also serves as a gateway to South Carolinas mountain country on the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Highway (S.C. 11).
