Although the water levels are extremely low, the wooden walkways get you close to nature, swings for comfort and relaxation, and plenty of shade.

A nice long boardwalk around a Hartwell inlet with plenty of shade, a few places to fish, a canoe/kayak landing, and access to several restaurants. Unfortunately the Army Corps manages this lake and it seems that for half the time this park has been built...More

I walk here often to enjoy the solitude and peace away from College Avenue. There are birds to watch and occasionally a family enjoying the boardwalk too.

Pack a lunch and take a stroll. Just a block or so from downtown Clemson. Shaded, meandering trail that has you walking alongside and over lake hartwell.

Not worth making a special trip for. Just ok, nothing special. It is on the water, and most of the walk is in the shade, but that is about it.

I enjoy going there with a sack lunch, for a stroll, or to merely sit and swing. The boardwalk makes for easy walking. Not much parking. Don't expect green space as in most parks, as the boardwalk is the main feature.

Take time to explore this lovely waterfront park - stroll the boardwalks or just sit on a bench to read your favorite book or enjoy the water. There are also a few picnic tables if you have packed a lunch or have a few minutes...More

I come here often either alone or with my 8 year son to fish. I've also brought dates for moon lit walks along the lake. Place worked great for both activities.

The boardwalk in Abernathy Waterfront Park is a great part of the attraction of this place. After high rainfall Hartwell Lake is several feet above full so much of the boardwalk is under water. It's interesting to see but requires care to walk on it.
