Barron's picture

Thanks, Barron Cooley, for sharing this fantastic shot of Hartwell Lake — and teaching me about what I’m seeing. Barron writes below:

Thought you might enjoy a picture of Lake Hartwell with Portman Marina in foreground, looking north up the Seneca river. The old Portman dam (remember the generator downtown?) was between the two bridges on the Seneca River. The first bridge is highway 24 and the second, fartherest away, is I-85.



  1. Superb!

  5. This is my neck of the lake. My parents have a place just beyond the I-85 bridge and I grew up swimming and skiing in the Seneca River branch. If you have a depth finder on your boat that shows the hills and valleys under the lake, you can locate the Portman Dam right between those 2 bridges and Mr. Cooley stated.
