Our fifth stay here. The sites, surroundings and hosts are great. But there are rules and no one to enforce them. There are dogs off leash, boat trailers and tents off the designated parking/camping areas, and some campers are noisy way into the night. Really need more of a ranger presence. We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park! No complaints! Camped on site #6. A little tight for my 33 ft. 5th whl on my pull-thru...but doable. No Wi-Fi, lake front... We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our lakefront site had a wonderful view. The campground has paved roads but sites are packed dirt. Drive slowly as the roads are winding and the road edges have serious drop-offs. Water & sewer were good and the grounds are kept up nicely, as are most COE campgrounds. Bathrooms were clean enough. We had a major ant invasion, as did all the campers around us. We pre-treated but forgot the water hose. Be very aware and aggressive with ant invasion prevention. We liked it and would return. We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Hartwell has many COE and state park CGs. This one is open year-round. Watsadler is a pleasant CG with really generous sites, mostly spread out along the lake. Every site has a flat parking area plus a picnic table area and a built-in raised grill. There are power and water hook-ups but no sewer. Most people probably stay here for water-related activities like fishing and boating. We were just passing through so we appreciated our quiet site on the water under many trees. One comment: if you are just looking for an overnight stop, this CG is a long way from 85. The roads are fine but it's a good 20 or 25 minutes. We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed two nights in a 42 ft. class A. Site was right on edge of lake with a beautiful view & was very level. Power & water were good. Friendly staff at gate. Only complaint was that the park seems to have a small problem with tiny black ants & saw several people sprinkling comet around their coaches/trailers. We usually spray around coach with ortho pest control, so did not have issues. Very pretty park. We stayed on a Monday & Tuesday & park was very quiet. Suspect on week-ends that it fills up.

This is one of the better campgrounds on Lake Hartwell. The campground is laid out on fingers of land jutting out into the lake. Most sites are lake front and are down hill from the loop access road. The pull-through sites are easiest to get into and are level. The quietest loop is next to the boat ramp and away from the highway. As with most public campgrounds it is quietest on week days. The park is close to restaurants and shopping The staff was great. We will stay here again. We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Hartwell has numerous parks along it's shore each one has a different view of the lake. Hartwell, Ga and Anderson, SC both have restaurants and shopping.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. The staff was great, especially staff at the gate. The park is well maintained. A park truck drives through the campgrounds many times a day. The campground is close to the town of Hartwell that has grocery stores, restaurants and home depot. Great place for quiet stay.

Check out your site before you park and if it isn't the best, check other sites and check at the gate to see if you can use one of the others. It was busy when we were here so we didn't have a big choice.

We will stay here again. We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Motorhome.

Wonderful park with very friendly staff. The bathouse was clean and great water pressure. The park was busy, but quiet and night. A wonderful park for walking, fishing and boating. Some of the front sights are near a highway, so get a sight towards to back of the park. The park seemed very safe and secure and night. The sights were pretty level, but not very spacious. Awesome sunsets and sunrises! We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The campground is our most favorite on Lake Hartwell. It's always kept neat & clean. The permanent campground hosts are a wonderful family. The sites are large & LEVEL! We feel safe & secure camping here. There's great fishing, so we alway have our kayaks & boat. The sunset from the lake in front of the dam are always spectacular!

Careful, this camp is tight: the roads are narrow with tight turns, the driveways for sites are narrow and snake through the trees. Our site was rated as a pull-through for a 50' rig. But it was impossible to get our 45' coach fully onto the site, and we had to back out a 200' drive! Further, you can hear and see cars and trucks driving day and night on the road just across the lake from all campsites. Otherwise, very lovely sites creatively placed right on the lake. Very easy access to town just 4 miles away (including Wal-Mart). We listed Access Pass half-price cost. We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Motorhome.

$11 per night reflects Golden Age Pass price. Most spots are great, all are on the lake. Two shower-houses are adequate and clean, not fancy. Nice walking and wonderful canoeing, kayaking. We could pull our kayaks up on the bank, and secure them for use another day. Boat ramp also nice. We were here before the summer season, and the campground was pretty full, but that didn't bother the plentiful birds including cardinals, robins, bluebirds, wood thrushes, wrens, and a family of geese. We would love to return. We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Motorhome.

My wife requires that she use an electric convenience to get around; partk attendant said these are not permitted in the park. My wife has had both hips replaced and several back operations; attendant said that made no difference she couldn't use her electric chair in the park. I wrote park headquarters and got no response. I would not recommend this park because of their attitude towards the handicapped. We camped at Watsadler Campground in a Motorhome.
