    We spent nights at Sadler Creek Labor Day Weekend. This is an older park, on Lake Hartwell, with Loop 1 being the oldest. We were on loop 2, but loop 3 had the best waterfront sites, IF Lake Hartwell had not dropped so much from the on-going drought. We were in site 29, fairly decent. Several sites had been refurbished recently, with new tables and fire rings, and the bathrooms in our loop were recently remodeled. The loop and sites were gravel, and on a slope down to the shore. Backing into the site did not present an issue for my loaded van and pup, but I saw plenty of signs of spinning from monster TT and 5th wheel trailers. If the lake level was higher, this would would have been a very nice campground, the staff was very friendly, and lots of deer roaming though made driving slow late at night and early in the AM a requirement.

    My husband and I just got back from an 8 day tent camping trip at Saddler's Creek State Park. We stayed in loop 2, site 33. It is a great site in terms of water view and access to water to put in canoe/kayak. It also has a bike trail that we enjoyed VERY much. It is well maintained and only had a few occasions where we had to pick up the bikes carry over fallen trees. The bathrooms were clean and warm.

    However, be warned!!!! There is an infestation of stink bugs!!!! They were everywhere. We took extra care to breakdown camp trying to debug everything from clothes, camp stove (yes, they crawled into the grill casing) tent, and etc. It took us twice as long to pack. I am not going to give all the details of what we had to endure once we got home, but let's say we WILL NOT go back. It is a shame because it is a nice park.
