SAVANNAH, Ga. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District announces several options for fall camping at Hartwell Dam and Lake.

Watsadler Campground in Hartwell, Ga., and Twin Lakes Campground in Pendleton, S.C., remain fully open until Nov. 30. After Dec. 1, both campgrounds will have one loop open for the winter months. Springfield Campground in Anderson, S.C., will remain open through Oct. 30.

“All three campgrounds feature electric and water hook-ups, restrooms with showers, dump stations, boat ramps, playgrounds, and staffed entrance gates; the majority of campsites also come with a lake view,” said Park Ranger Tanya Grant.

“Many people enjoy the cooler temperatures that we have this time of year,” Grant said. “The campgrounds also tend to be less crowded in the fall, especially on weekdays.”

Campsite reservations are always recommended and can be made through the National Recreation Reservation Service online at or toll-free at 877-444-6777.
