Overview

Oconee Point Campground is located on 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.

Natural Features:

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.

Recreation:

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.

Facilities:

The campground offers 70 campsites, all of which are waterfront and have 50-amp electrical hookups and water. Other amenities include playgrounds, a swim beach and a dump station.
