Coneross Campground is located on the Seneca River arm of the northern end of Hartwell Lake in South Carolina.
Spanning parts of South Carolina and Georgia, Hartwell Lake is one of the largest and most visited public recreation lakes in the Southeast. It comprises nearly 56,000 acres of water and has a shoreline of 962 miles.
The lake shore is thickly forested with mostly pine, and the lake itself is large with many inlets and coves to explore.
Numerous species of birds call this area home, including waterfowl, shorebirds, woodland birds and even the occasional peregrine falcon and bald eagle.
Fishing is one of the most popular activities at the lake. Sought-after species include largemouth bass, bream, crappie, catfish, striped bass and hybrid bass.
The lake appeals to boaters of all kinds, whether their specialty is canoeing, sailing or motor boating. Coves and areas of quiet water provide water skiers with excellent surfaces.
Swimmers will find sand beaches and designated swim areas along the shoreline.
Coneross boasts sweeping views of Hartwell Lake. This campground has a total of 105 sites, most of which have water and electric hookups. Twelve are non-hookup, primitive sites.
All of the sites are spacious and mostly shaded. Amenities include a boat ramp with courtesy dock, dump station, restrooms with showers and a playground.
The campground is a short drive away from Clemson, South Carolina and Clemson University, offering additional tourism opportunities, along with grocery stores, gas stations and restaurants.
Spacious sites, terraced to the water, wooded, quiet and inexpensive. What more do you need?
A great(better?) Alternative to Twin lakes. At least for me, I prefer quiet to meeting all the neighbors. Nice level spots and a nice swimming beach. Clean bath houses. Gates do shut in the evening so no late arrivals.
Hubby and I spent a weekend October 2018 at this beautiful place. Our campsite was right by the water and very spacious. The site has electric and water hookups. Bring your boat, you can pull right up to your campsite. There is a nice beach area for swimming and playground for the kids. The campground doesn’t offer much in way of amenities, but you’ll forget about that once you set up camp and relax by the campfire, roasting a s’more while watching the sun set over the lake.
105 sites to choose from and most of them are awesome! Can’t be the waterfront sites on Lake Hartwell. Check out more details and photos on the link. https://imaginecamper.com/2018/07/02/coneross-campground/
