Discover Hartwell


Named for Revolutionary War heroine Nancy Morgan Hart, Hartwell is a charming, quiet town in Hart County, Georgia close to the South Carolina state line. Hartwell was founded in 1854, incorporated as a town in 1856, and finally made a city in 1904, along the way becoming the county seat for Hart County.

Hartwell is situated in the eastern foothills of the mighty Appalachian Mountains, which heavily shape the subtropical climate in and around Hartwell. There are lots of creeks, rivers, and lakes nearby, and when you book an RV in Hartwell, you are in a good position to see them all. Howell Street, one of the town’s main arteries, is full of brightly-painted homes and historic buildings, helping to establish a refreshing and enchanting atmosphere that will have you wanting to stay longer. The town feels quite isolated out in the middle of rural Georgia, but both Atlanta and Athens are quite easy to reach with your Hartwell RV rental when you hit the road.

The Great Outdoors

Georgia is full of incredible wilderness areas, backcountry parks, and massive lakes, so it's no wonder so many people flock to The Peach State when the weather gets warm. Hartwell is ideally situated near dozens of parks and recreation areas, so you and your Hartwell motorhome rental are in luck. Lake Hartwell is close to town, and one of the region’s best places for outdoor recreation. A large assortment of campgrounds, parks, and beaches can be found along the lakeside, like Hart State Park, also named for Nancy Morgan Hart. The park is lined with white sand beaches, lovely views, swimming areas, hiking trails, and tons of space to go boating, jet skiing, or fishing. There is a campground you can utilize when you rent an RV, as well as a small outdoor theater that puts on events and educational programs. Elrod Ferry Recreation Area and Long Point Recreation Area are also close by, with places to camp, fish, swim, and hike.

Up to the north, Tugaloo State Park and Lake Hartwell State Park both sit on either side of the Savannah River in their respective states. Tugaloo State Park is located on the Georgia side of the state line, with 400 acres of wide-open land along the water’s edge. There are over 100 campsites where you can park your Hartwell RV rental, in addition to rental cottages, yurts, beaches, tennis courts, picnic pavilions, and boat launches. Lake Hartwell State Park is across the river in South Carolina, with much of the same activities and features. Rental cabins, playgrounds, swimming areas, fishing spots, boat launches, and camping areas are all part of this enjoyable park in South Carolina.

The northern parts of Georgia are blanketed in lush forests and ancient mountain ranges, all part of the mesmerizing Chattahoochee National Forest. Chattahoochee National Forest is by far the largest nature park in the state, totaling well over three-quarters of a million acres atop the Appalachian Mountains. There are ten wilderness areas, dozens of recreation areas, and plenty of campgrounds to accommodate you and your Hartwell camper rental when you venture to this outdoor gem. Furthermore, you can explore thousands of miles of creeks, rivers, and waterways by means of kayaking or canoeing, and hundreds of miles of tranquil hiking paths.

RV Parks

You won’t have trouble locating a place to camp with your motorhome rental near Hartwell. Most of the closest options are public campgrounds belonging to the state or county. Places like Hart State Park, Elrod Ferry Recreation Area, and Long Point Recreation Area are the closest camping areas near town, with rustic camping, swimming areas, and ample space to go fishing.

Anderson/Lake Hartwell KOA is found on the other side of the state line in South Carolina and is a good place to consider if you don’t mind driving around the lake. This campground has a swimming pool, a mini-golf course, a pet park, a pavilion, and more.

Carolina Landing RV Resort is also located in South Carolina not too far from Hartwell, with fantastic views over the water. There are beaches, rental cabins, a swimming pool, and other amenities to enjoy when you stay at this hidden gem along the water.

City Sightseeing

Since it was designated the seat for all of Hart County, Hartwell enjoys some stellar attractions. Even before you get to those points of interest, you’ll have a blast walking around town observing the vibrant buildings and historic structures built before the Civil War. The layout of the town is very pedestrian-friendly, so strolling up and down the main promenades in town can be an adventure in its own right. The Hart County Botanical Garden is a marvelous extension of the town’s beauty, with peaceful walking paths and masterfully maintained gardens to meditate in.

When you rent an RV in Hartwell, you can drive out to see the Hartwell Dam, an impressive concrete embankment on the Savannah River responsible for the creation of Lake Hartwell. This massive feat of engineering produces half a billion kilowatt hours each year and has prevented millions of dollars of flooding damage over the years.

The Hart County Chamber of Commerce & Historical Museum is an invaluable resource for both the town and country, located in a one-story Victorian home on East Howell Street. This small but worthwhile museum offers insight into the creation of the city and offers walking maps for self-guided tours through the historic homes district and the rest of town too.

If you still want to see some more of Georgia, the Georgia Guidestones can be found down in Elberton, and are made from granite mined from the town itself. This monument is likened to Stonehenge in the United Kingdom, believed to be the center of the universe by Cherokee indigenous people. The granite structure is quite aesthetically pleasing, with lots of words from different languages inscribed on it.
