Hi
Has anyone recently visited this campsite, want to more about the facilities available here. Called the number on their website, but could not reach anyone for more information. I am planning to visit here on memorial day weekend 2019.

Unless something has changed, there are no facilities here. No toilet, no water, no picnic table just primitive camping
There is camping in Hartsburg volunteer park close to the trailhead. There is a picnic table and gazebo in park. Water and flush toilets at trailhead. There is also camping at Coopers landing in Easley. I don’t believe there are any camping facilities at conservation areas along trail other than primitive.

Totally agree with Allen. I would add that I would only camp at Hart Creek if it was a time of year where you do not have ticks or mosquitoes, or I had a plan to deal with them.

The spot dedicated for primitive camping is about 20 yards of the trail. Small and in the trees so blocks wind, lowlands and subject to mosquitos. Go up the hill about 30 yards and there is an open area where I went I had a nice evening. Would be less enjoyable if multiple parties choose this spot on the same night - but reminder that it is a shared area and I would be welcoming.

I loved this place. It's hard to miss. Between the area right off the trail and the large open field right up the hill, you should be a pretty happy camper.
