Discover Hartwell

Georgia's Premier Lake Destination

Live well. Play well. Hartwell.

Nestled in the Northeast corner of Georgia, bordering Lake Hartwell with 222 miles of lakefront shoreline, Hartwell/Hart County is Georgia Lake Country's premier vacation destination. Hiking, biking, kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing, boating, fishing, camping and swimming-Hart County has it all. 


In the historic square of Hartwell, Georgia, enjoy browsing through the quaint stores and unique gift shops offering original regional crafts, fine clothing and Lake Hartwell souveniers.  Sip coffee and soak in the artwork at the downtown art gallery with changing exhibitions. Eat an unforgettable steak at one of our fine restaurants and try a craft beer flight to see which one is your favorite brew.


For entertainment, take in a show at the community theatre or hear talented musical performances in the ambiance of a 100 year old room at High Cotton Music Hall. Play golf at an old favorite, Hartwell Golf Club or at Cateechee Golf Club, an Audubon Signature Golf Course. Rent a boat from one of our marinas and enjoy a sunset cruise on beautiful Lake Hartwell.  


Discover what it means to live well and play well.
