Hartswell Lake.
Description - Swimming, boating, water skiing, and fishing at Lake Hartwell are prime reasons to visit Hart State Park. Large mouth bass, black crappie, bream, rainbow trout and walleyed pike can be found in the sparkling waters of this 55,590-acre reservoir. The park's boat ramps and docks offer easy access to all water sports.

Within the 147 acre park, visitors will find 76 tent, trailer and RV campsites, two cottages, three picnic shelters, a large picnic area, and an ADA accessible campsite, picnic site, showers, and a restroom. The cottages and most of the campsites are located on the scenic lake shore. There is also a swimming beach and a 1.5 mile multi-use trail.

Recreation - Hart State Park offers plenty of water sport activities such as boating, fishing, swimming, and water skiing as well as camping, picnicking, bicycling, and hiking. Visitors will also enjoy the music programs at the Cricket Theater.

Climate - The climate in northern Georgia is generally temperate. Short, cool winters give relief from hot summers. Most visitors enjoy this area during long, mild fall and spring seasons.
