Overview

Overview

Located at Hartwell Lake, one of the southeast's largest and most popular public recreation areas, Weldon Island is a summer day-use area that offers an ideal setting for a party, barbecue or simply a day of water activities with the family.

Weldon Island boasts sweeping views of the nearly 56,000 acres of water that comprise Hartwell Lake.

Natural Features:

Hartwell Lake is a man-made lake bordering Georgia and South Carolina on the Savannah, Tugaloo and Seneca Rivers. The dam and lake area boasts 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. Nearby Hattons Ford boat ramp is available year-round for visitors' convenience.

Bass fishing is a particularly popular pastime and with Striped bass regularly weighing in between 15 to 30 lbs, anglers come here year round to try their luck.

Facilities:

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

Nearby Attractions:

Nearby Lake Hartwell State Park offers nature trails, boat ramps and beach access for visitors looking to explore the area outside Weldon Island.
