Welcome to Hart County

Hartwell Lake is one of the southeast's largest and most popular public recreation lakes. Built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers between 1955 and 1963 as part of a flood control, hydropower and navigation project, authorized purposes now include recreation, water quality, water supply, and fish and wildlife management. Each year, millions of people utilize the many public parks, marinas and campgrounds conveniently located around the lake to pursue a variety of outdoor recreational experiences-making Hartwell one of the most visited Corps lakes in the nation.
