This campsite is a 20 foot by 20 foot stone dust pad perfect for setting up your tent or tents on. It is in a shaded grove of trees with plenty of opportunity to hang up hammocks, and convenient parking only 50 feet from the site. 10 minutes to Clemson University. There is also a small fire pit at the campsite. This campsite is a short 2 minute walk to the water on a small cove on Lake Hartwell, and includes private access to a small platform dock with brand new deck boards for fishing/swimming/tying up your boat. There is a portable bathroom a short 1 minute walk from the campsite, a potable water spigot at the entrance to the property, and a private boat ramp 3 minutes down the road. There is also a small 10ft waterfall (accessible depending on lake level) a short 15-25min paddle from the dock. 

There is also a paddle board, kayak, and canoe available for rent for a small extra fee that will make it easy to go fishing, get out on the water, and explore the small waterfall nearby.

Great spot on the lake and in the w

Perfect little spot to spend a few nights on the lake and in the woods. Saw a herd of deer as I was diving in. Lots of firewood, really clean, easy to get to, and an overall good experience. As the other person mentioned there is a kennel or something up above and the dogs do bark, but seems like mostly at what might be the fending times, and not at night. Didn't here them at night the two days I was there, which was nice. The in road is kind of close to the site and you can see it, but very few cars traveled it. Would stay again. Jacob was a great and communicative host.

The site was clean and nestled in the trees near the lake. Bring some tubes or kayaks to take advantage of Lake Hartwell at this beautiful camp!

Nice campsite

Jake was a very nice host. He offered to meet us at the property and show us around the campsite before we arrived. However we declined because it seemed we could find our way around.
Our stay was very nice. The campsite itself was clean and had prepared fire wood and stumps for ease of building a campfire. There is a road leading to the campsite but it is a bit blocked and the only access to it is a steep curb so you can either park in the gravel parking lot and walk maybe 1/4 mile to the site or brave scraping (we made it without in a VW Jetta) and park closer to the site.
The site was not as secluded as we had expected be aware that there is a road by the campsite that is separated by a small patch of forest so you will see cars passing at night and during the day I imagine they could also see us sitting around the fire at night.
The dock was very nice to have access to the water however it is a short walk from the campsite and you can’t see the water from your site.

Hi Iva, thanks again for staying at the site! We are working on opening up the road all the way to avoid the possibility of scraping your bumper on your way onto the road/driveway. This project should be done in the next few weeks. Thanks again for visiting and come back soon!

Plenty of firewood was provided. Lovely view from dock. There is a pet boarding kennel within a mile and if you aren’t a dog person, don’t stay here. They barked all day and most of the night. Not the hosts fault but just a heads up. We saw otters in the lake also. Nice trip and we will return

Hi Shannon. I'm sorry to hear about the dog noise disturbing your camping experience. I have a great relationship with the dog owners, and if I ask them to, they will make an effort to quiet them down or bring them inside. On your next visit, please feel free to let me know if they are being too loud and I will do everything I can to help resolve the situation. Thanks again for visiting and come back soon!

Thank you, Jacob!
The site is great. Jacob has provided tons of firewood, so no need to bring your own. The dock by the lake is lovely and super relaxing. We spent great evenings on the dock, watching the stars or the bats hunt.
Jacob is a great host and has been most helpful whenever I needed his help.
I rain is in the forecast, I would advise to leave your car at the top of the driveway. We got stuck in the mud trying to leave. But Jacob was super kind and helpful.

Thanks Alex, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. This past weekend we opened up the driveway, so no more concern of getting stuck on that little hill. Glad you enjoyed your stay, come back soon!

Nice little campsite! It is pretty close to the road and you probably shouldn't try to drive right up to it unless you are in a truck or 4x4 vehicle. Very clean, nice benches and firepit set up. Thanks Jacob!

It was an excellent location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was secluded and felt like we were in the middle of the woods. There was plenty of firewood, a trash can, chairs, and a dock. We fished and spent time together by the fire. We highly recommend this place and will definitely come back.

Excellent campsite, better than a state park because there is only on camp site. Jacob gave us helpful directions and the site was clean and well built.
