Tugaloo State Park

Picture: 
Tugaloo State Park

"The serene setting of Tugaloo State Park is your starting point to creating family memories with spectacular sunrise and sunset views from the shores of Lake Hartwell, exceptional recreational opportunities, rich cultural heritage and natural resources of the Appalachian Mountains Foothills."

Situated on a wooded peninsula, Tugaloo’s cottages and most campsites offer spectacular views of 55,590 acre Lake Hartwell in every direction. Some cottages even have private boat docks for overnight guests. Tent campers can choose between the developed campground or primitive sites located a short walk from the parking area. During summer, the lake is a popular destination for swimming, water skiing, sailing and boating. Both the Sassafras and Muscadine hiking trails wind through oak, walnut, mulberry and cherry trees.

Tugaloo State Park boasts a six-lane mega ramp used for large fishing tournaments and easy lake access. Fishing is excellent year-round, and large-mouth bass are plentiful. The name “Tugaloo” comes from an Indian name for the river which once flowed freely prior to the construction of Hartwell Dam.
