This place is lovely. Cannot see where last campers negative review came from. Think he must have been at a different place. My husband and I camp here at least every year and we think it gets better and better all the time.The owners are always working on it and its a real nice place to stay and relax for a few days. It has is a lovely setting with lots of trees. It is so quiet, at night you can here a pin drop. We do not usually use the bathrooms as we have full hook up site but this visit we made sure we checked them out because of the mean remarks by someone. They are real clean and probably the best we have seen in many years of camping. We also do not usually write reviews but had to after that nastly malicious review that was posted recently. That person needs to get a life, making false claims about numerous things, very bad. We like this place a lot and just cannot understand the mean spirit of some people. Hope they can sleep a night.

Run down and dirty

Date:

Lake Hartwell Camping and Cabins is so run down and pathetic. Below are some of the reasons why you should not stay there.

BATHROOMS: They clean their bathrooms maybe once a day”. There were several days that there was hair on the shower walls that was not removed, caked on fecal matter on the toilets, dead bugs in the sinks and overflowing trash|. There are 5 shower/bathrooms and while we were there, they only had 3 open and the other two locked’. the bathrooms do not have paper towels or soap and they are ALWAYS DIRTY..

INTERNET: They claim there is internet but the only place you can get it is on a bench outside their office!. For days it was not even working there;. If you do connect, it was so slow and not worth the trouble!. THERE IS NO CELL SERVICE IN THE AREA strong enough to connect 3G so you are screwed.

ELECTRIC: I cannot tell you how many times our power cut out and the breaker blew. I talked with several long term people there and they laughed and said that happens all the time.

WATER PRESSURE: Their water pressure is guaranteed to drop or even no water at all when they have a few campers. We had to turn on our pump to force water from their lines just to flush our toilets.

SEPTIC: They had several instances where their septic lines were backed up and if someone at a higher camper dumped their lines, *** would flood out of the lower sewer hookups under campers making for a horrible smell and a biological hazard

STAFF: Their staff does not care about the place, their visitors or complaints. To give an example. I work out of my camper full time. The day we got there I realized the issue with the internet. I told them the situation and asked for a refund so I could go somewhere else. They refused! I have heard them tell other visitors the same thing, no help, no refund, no good!

Vehicles have been broken into, neighbor kids running around at night, vandalism and theft. Not a great place to be! the owner is so cheap that one of their staff that “cleans” for them, the golfcart she uses needs a battery but the owners are too cheap to get a new one so she has to continually plug it in wherever she goes.

RUN DOWN: It is obvious that the owners do not take care of this place since there are ants everywhere (wife is allergic), the mini-golf course is falling apart and the wood is rotting away, the boat dock has seen it’s last days, the rental boats are dirty and beaten up (dents, rips in seats, poorly maintained), playground items are rusty and dirty (they use a drain pipe as a “play area”). They put in PLASTIC FLOWERS to make it look like they have landscaped. PLASTIC FLOWERS!!! How pathetic.

We cannot give them ANY start since the owners are just slum lords. There are several other places that are cleaner, MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE and have better grounds to enjoy yourself.
