Tugaloo State Park

1763 Tugalo State Park Rd

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.

Nice cabins on the lake. Great views. The cabins need a little attention but a decent value for how nice the views are. We rented 4 cabins for a father's day celebration and two of the homes have their own docks (very nice). The issues were minor and would be easy to remedy. Many of the doorknobs need lubrication (they don't turn freely and don't lock well) Squeaky ceiling fans

We stayed on sites 11 and 12. Couldn’t have had a better experience. Sites, bathhouse, boat ramps, park office were all impeccably clean. Campground host was super nice and helpful. We have stayed at many state parks, and this one is the tops thus far! Great time, and most certainly will be back.

Amazing campsites right on the water or in view of the water. Very flat sites with little or no leveling required. Water and electric hook up. Dump station. Great cable reception, as well as phone. No wifi. Very clean. Good access to multiple bathhouses.

Shady spots on the lake are from the initial build. The roads to these spaces need attention. There are newer bigger sites away from water but need road renewal. The trees are keeping us cool even on hot days. Nice place to be.

Great park for RV's. They have hosts that help you find a spot and are always around checking to make sure everything is OK. They helped us find a great site. Restrooms and showers were clean and close by. We would definitely come back.
