Local Area

The Hartwell Dam

The Hartwell Dam & Lake Visitor Center is a great stop for anyone needing more information about one of the Southeast's largest lakes, Hartwell Lake. Big Oaks Recreation Area is located adjacent to the visitor center. At Big Oaks, you will have a great view of Hartwell Lake from the picnic area. Take a walk on a paved (handicap accessible) walking trail that goes along the edge of Hartwell Lake and leads to the top of Hartwell Dam, where you have a scenic view of the lake, dam and the Savannah River.



Casually sophisticated—yet warm and welcoming. Cateechee offers lodging, event spaces, & a range of activities like music, golf, fishing & upland game hunting.
