As avid boaters, kayakers, and paddle boarders my family spends a lot of time at Hartwell. It’s a large lake located right on Clemson University, you can see the football stadium from the water and there is many great restaurants and bars on the water that are worth the trip alone. My only complaint about Hartwell is that the water is poor quality compared to other local lakes, especially near the Clemson side of things. But this doesn’t stop us from enjoying the lake and campground.
We've been to visit several times while looking for a nice vacation spot for our RV. Most of the Lots are for rent nicely or weekly. Most are shaded and close to the lake front. Some are woods. Love the seasonal pool, too. We'll be back next summer!
