Hartwell-Lake is one of the "Great Lakes" of Georgia, located in the northern part of the state near the South Carolina border. It is a man-made reservoir created by the Hartwell Dam on the Savannah, Tugaloo and Seneca Rivers. Hartwell Lake has more than 80 public park sites, five marinas, picnicking facilities and camping. The northern part of the lake extends into the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The lake comprises almost 56,000 acres of water and has a shoreline of 962 miles. There is a wide difference in soils, terrain and climate surrounding Hartwell Lake, which results in a very diverse wildlife habitat. More than 250 species of birds can be found here, along with 40 species of mammals and numerous aquatic, reptilian and amphibian species. Some of the recreational activities at the lake include hiking, mountain biking, fishing, boating and other water sports, birdwatching and photography. East of lake are rolling hills and farmland. To the north/northwest are lakes, rivers and lovely country roads to explore. Most of the back roads are paved and good for bicycling, as well as driving. Hartwell Lake has easy access to I-85 and other parts of Georgia, making it very convenient getaway destination.
