Here at Big Water, we try to offer everything we can so that you can fully enjoy the lake. Here is a list of the services we offer and a short description. 


Our ramp is one of the deepest on the entire span of Lake Hartwell. This ramp still functioned at a staggering 23 feet below pool. We also have parking near our ramp where you can park for free at your own risk.

We have a simple $5 fee that covers putting in and retrieving your boat. 

Gas Dock

We have a self serve gas dock with two pumps. Currently, we stock 93 octane fuel specially ordered with NO ethanol. Call us for pricing. 

Ship Store

Once you've filled up your boat, come up to the Ship's Store and top yourself off.  We have snacks, drinks, ice, and our popular ice cream selection. 

We also carry essentials for a lake day and the necessities for occasional quick repairs. 


Our restrooms are open 24/7. Showers are also available. 


A day on the lake can certainly work up an appetite! Keep your crew happy & full with a trip to our seasonal restaurant — Raines on Lake Hartwell. Call our office for information on hours.
