I have a 30+ ft Cruiser style boat; what marinas or waterways would be best in the area? I know it is land locked, but still need to make a decision...

Thx

Default marinas

You may want to try Keowee Marina in Seneca or Portman Marina at Lake Hartwell.

We've found Portman on Lake Hartwell to be quite the "zoo" - lots of "studs" and "hoochie-mamas". Harbor Light Marina on the GA/SC state line is a bit smaller and the folks there are less the party crowd, and more just "plain folks". It's a bit further from Greenville, but worth the extra 15 min drive or so.

There is everything from kayaks to pontoon boats to 40-50 ft cruisers to 100 ft houseboats on Lake Hartwell. Hartwell is by far the largest lake in the area, with several other marinas in addition to Portman & Harbor Light, and lots of public boat ramps & parks on its shores as well.

Portman Marina is HUGE (has 2 restaurants on site), which can be a good thing or bad thing, depending on what you want. We've always found it to be more of a "partyer's" marina, with plenty of "studs" and "hoochie mamas", and a bit of a zoo. Harbor Light Marina on the GA/SC border is smaller, and the people there are more average folks who just want a nice quiet place to enjoy the lake. It's a little further from Greenville, but it's worth the extra 15 min drive.

Lake Hartwell is by far the largest lake in the region. There is everything from kayaks to pontoon boats to 40-50 ft cruisers to 100 ft houseboats on Hartwell. In addition to Portman & Harbor Light, there are several other marinas, several boat slips & parks on Hartwell as well.

Have fun!
