Residents in a Seneca subdivision found the bags Saturday night or Sunday morning.
The paper said "Save Our Land, Join the Klan." It had a phone number that led to an automated message discussing KKK efforts against illegal immigration.
Two men who said they were members of the KKK told local broadcasters that recruiting efforts are going on across the country.
Oconee County resident Bo Morris said he thought it was "unacceptable" to see the bags and fliers in his neighborhood.
