Army Corps To Reduce Visitor Services at Hartwell Lake

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA. -

The Savannah District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says they will reduce park operations and visitor services at Hartwell Lake during the 2013 recreation season.

The Corps says that's due to significant projected budget reductions.

They say they will keep closed one primitive campground and partially close six day use areas for the 2013 season in addition to maintaining the reductions in park seasons and service levels implemented in 2012.

In a statement, the Corps says reduction in service levels includes reducing frequency in cleaning, mowing, water safety outreach, trash collection and some maintenance.

The Corps also says Milltown Campground will remain closed for the 2013 season.

Poplar Springs and Friendship Day Use areas will be partially closed this season.  Boat ramps at these locations will remain open, but all day-use sections and loops will remain closed.

Long Point, Stephens County, Mullins Ford and Lawrence Bridge Recreation areas will be operated as pack-in/pack-out areas.  There will be no restroom facilities or trash pick-up services at these locations, but other facilities such as picnic sites and boat ramps will be open this season.

You can check the latest information on Hartwell Lake park seasons by visiting the Savannah District website link on this page and choose the "Recreation" icon, or call the Hartwell Dam and Lake Office at 888-893-0678.
