Outstanding owners. Park is a work in progress and needs still needs work, but the area where we stayed with the cabins is very nice. Easy access to I-85 and nice dog run. Would definitly return. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night, it is ok for passing through but wouldn't vacation at this spot. No lake access and other campers are relatively close. Hookups were good and it was quiet at night. We have stayed at other parks in the area for half the price and are on the lake. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Second time we stayed here while traveling on I-85. Nice campground run by two sisters that are helpful and friendly. Had a power issue on first site (surge protector reading reverse polarity). The pole was checked but I was moved to an upgraded site for my inconvenience. We will stay here again on our next trip south on I-85. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate is with a KOA discount. Easy access from the Interstate to the campground. However, it is a bit tight inside the campground. Lots of shade. This was an overnight stop for us so we didn't check out any amenities. Though Lake Hartwell is nearby, this campground does not have waterfront or water view.

The pool was nice after a long day's drive. A typical KOA. The Wi-Fi was ample. Very friendly staff. Would camp here again. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Paved entrance road, gravel interior roads and site, fairly level. Lots of shade. No problems with power or cable. Older park well maintained by the two sweet ladies that run this place. Two hours free Wi-Fi, then 3 dollars a day. Wi-Fi fast and reliable. Water pressure high. Areawide problem with water, giving it an odor and rendering it undrinkable. Not the park's fault; the county is working on it. Suggest you bring some bottled water with you until this is resolved. Quiet park we will use again.

The sisters who run this KOA are simply amazing. While there, one was busy building lot decks by herself while the other tended to KOA business. This is not a destination campground. It is, however, the perfect place to spend a weekend or so. My only complaint is they now charge for internet. It is $3 a day or $12 a week. Too many parents letting their kids play games when the wifi was free, as I was told. May be a thing of the future for all of us who let the internet babysit our kids. Otherwise a great overnight or a weekend KOA. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Enjoyed this campground a lot. The only down side was the road noise at night. Staff was wonderful! We had a problem with a tire & they stepped right up to help! We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Though the staff was friendly, this is a very old KOA that needs some serious upgrading. Sites were short, turns were tight, and there were quite a few graveyard units parked which really detracted from the place. WiFi was either very slow, or with no connection at all. We probably won't return. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Motorhome.

The site we had was a pull through- it was pretty level, with reasonably good access to it. We chose 30 amp because 50 amp is a few dollars more and we didn't need it. The Wi-Fi, which was my main reason for choosing this campground was good. I had no issues, other than it was sometimes a little slow, but not bad. I made the bad decision to do laundry. The laundry room was disgustingly dirty. Leftover soap was hardened onto the washers, and they smelled like mold. They also didn't hold enough water- less than half a tub. The swimming pool was fine- the water was so warm it wasn't refreshing, but that is no one's fault. Would I stay here again? No. I would look for someplace else next time. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Good for an overnight stay. I had a 32ft MH and was towing. Overall 46 feet, and had no trouble with the pull through site. Hostess was quite helpful with information on traffic through Atlanta. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Motorhome.

This campground should not advertise Big Rig access for Motorhomes 40' or more. This is a very old campground that has not been maintained. We were led to our site on dirt roads with tight turns and tree limbs brushing the top and sides of the Motorhome. Poison Ivy surrounded the hook ups. We had to disconnect our tow vehicle so we could back up and then maneuver forward to get out of our site. Again trees scratched the top & sides. We had to do a 3 point turn to exit the lane our site was on. As full time RV'ers, this is by far the worst KOA we have stayed in across the USA.

Great host couples, including ham radio operators. This campground has improved over the last two years: better WiFi, more gravel on sites, more supplies in store, spruced up grounds, and friendlier attendants with a willingness to please, even to previewing sites with you in a golf cart. There is a little road noise, but nothing terribly loud. Easy access from I-85. Gas station at the exit including diesel with easy access. Great cable TV. It's definitely one of our favorite campgrounds and we'll be back. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed a week using KOA Anderson's "Hot Deal". The experience was positive right from the check-in. The owners are enthusiastic about the day-to-day operation and this was reflected in their workamper couple. Everything was clean, neat and in good repair. The CG is convenient to shopping and restaurants. We had family staying here, too and the time spent with them was great. All in all this is a campground that not only offers a lot, but delivers as promised. We will go back. We camped at Anderson / Lake Hartwell KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
