Framed by the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains in Upstate South Carolina, Lake Keowee boasts 300 miles of pristine shoreline on 18,500 acres and the perfect climate for year-round, lakeside living. From serene shores and sandy beaches to sparkling water as far as the eye can see, Lake Keowee offers endless opportunities, whether you’d rather spend the day waterskiing across the rippling lake or kayaking along quiet coves, fishing for spotted bass or simply lounging on the dock enjoying spectacular views of the lake and mountains beyond.
Also known as South Carolina’s “Golden Corner,” the lake’s charming neighbors—Seneca, Pickens, Walhalla and Clemson—offer exhilarating outdoor recreational experiences, quaint small town charm and a bustling top university, distinct dining, unique shopping, rich history and more.
While the Golden Corner feels like a quaint country retreat, you’ll find all the conveniences you’re accustomed to within reach. Top-ranked hospitals and health facilities AnMed Health and Oconee Memorial Hospital are located in nearby Clemson and Seneca. At nearby Clemson University, take advantage of educational opportunities through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), enjoy performing arts at the Brooks Center, and of course, cheer on the 2016 National Football Champions at Death Valley, or root for the Tiger baseball, basketball, golf, soccer teams and more. Vibrant, award-winning Greenville, as well the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport are less than an hour away. From the lake, it’s an hour and fifteen to Asheville, and Atlanta and Charlotte are about two and a half hours away in either direction.
