The Lake has over 962 miles of shoreline, totaling over 55,900 acres of surface area. Lake Hartwell offers 60 public boat launches, five marinas and two restaurants. Lake Hartwell is a full recreational lake, allowing jet skis, water skiing, swimming, tubing, boat docks, fishing, and other water activities. The lake is a fisherman’s paradise since it abounds with many species of fish. Some communities use Lake Hartwell as their drinking water supply. Lake Hartwell, created in 1959, is a man-made lake bordering Georgia and South Carolina on the Savannah, Tugaloo, and Seneca Rivers. It is one of the most accessible lakes in the nation, less than 2 hours from downtown Atlanta, GA, 2 hours from Charlotte, NC, or 1 hour from Greenville, SC.
The shoreline displays custom built homes, ranging in price from $150,000 to $1,300,000 for dockable waterfront lots and lakefront homes, many with beautiful docks including some with second level viewing decks. Water access lots and non-dockable waterfront lots range in price from $50,000 to $150,000+. The property lines are not owned to the lake (owned to the core line), insuring the natural quality of the shoreline. Docks are allowed however to determine the “dockability” of a particular property, please contact the Hartwell Project Office to arrange for a ranger to conduct a field inspection of the site in question. "Dockability" depends on many factors such as shoreline zoning, location, and spacing from other structures. Each site is unique, and a field inspection is the only method to positively determine dock possibilities. The Hartwell Project Office encourages prospective buyers to request a field inspection prior to purchasing property on Hartwell Lake. Permits are not transferable when you buy property with a permit already in place and nor are you guaranteed a permit if there was one existing as it could have been grandfathered. Permits are only good for five years and must be renewed.
