Overview

Description

Fair Play is a summer day-use area on the South Carolina side of Hartwell Lake, one of the southeast's largest and most popular public recreation areas. With sweeping views of the nearly 56,000-acre lake, Fair Play offers an ideal setting for a party, barbecue or simply a day of water activities with the family.

Geography:

Hartwell Lake is a man-made lake bordering Georgia and South Carolina on the Savannah, Tugaloo and Seneca Rivers. The dam and lake areas boast nine campgrounds and 15 day-use facilities that are operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Surrounding vegetation allows for plenty of shade, and the 962 miles of shoreline provide numerous swimming beaches, picnic areas and boat ramps.

Recreation:

Boating and water sports top the list of popular activities. A two-lane boat ramp is available for visitors' convenience, and two designated swimming beaches are located on the peninsula.

Nearby Lake Hartwell State Recreation Area offers a 3/4 mile nature trail, where birding conditions are ideal.

Facilities:

Fair Play offers multiple picnic areas, complete with shelters, flush toilets and playgrounds. Parking is available on-site.

Nearby Attractions:

A hiking and biking trail is located nearby at Paynes Creek Campground.
