Outdoor Pursuits

Let's take it outside.

For outdoor enthusiasts, there may be no better place to call home than these Carolina mountains. Here are hundreds of thousands of acres of protected lands where you’ll find breathtaking vistas of Blue Ridge Mountain majesty and endless opportunities to hike, paddle, pedal and explore.



Our Watersports team members are ready to take you on a private kayak tour, paddleboard around the lake, or hop in the water and get you up on a wakeboard. Rent one of our watercrafts and explore Lake Keowee with your family. Whatever your aquatic desire, we can help plan your perfect day on the lake!

The fishing in Lake Keowee and the rivers and streams that surround The Cliffs are some of the best (and most scenic) in the Southeast. Anglers enjoy world-class opportunities, and numerous state records have come from these waters. Just try it once and you’ll be wondering if it’s the fish that’s gotten hooked… or you.

“This land is often characterized as the land of waterfalls. And like notches on a belt, it’s about what waterfalls you’ve seen and what you need to see. It’s just a part of the incredible ecosystem we have here. There’s more plant life in these mountains than anywhere in the Western Hemisphere.”
