Lake Keowee, South Carolina


South Carolina Lakes Lake Keowee


Constructed by Duke Power Company to generate hydroelectric power, Lake Keowee covers Keowee Town, site of the capital of the Lower Cherokee Nation. Keowee, meaning "Place of the Mulberries," was visited by Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto when he came through the area in 1540.

Today, 18,500 acres of water and a 300-mile shoreline make Lake Keowee a popular place for boating, fishing, water-skiing, swimming, camping, and picnicking. The lake is located predominately in Oconee County, but it also extends into Pickens County.

Seneca is the largest city in Oconee County and Clemson is the largest city in Pickens County. Here are maps of the Seneca area and of the Clemson area.
