Lake Greenwood is a beautiful place in the Upstate to go boating, fishing, and camping. Each fall, the Lake Greenwood State Park plays host to the South Carolina Half-Ironman Competition, a popular triathlon race.
In 1933, during the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps built Buzzard’s Roost Dam and a power plant on the Saluda River. This project was originally intended to create jobs and generate affordable electricity for residents. Greenwood County acquired more than 250 parcels of land in the lake basin, which is now Lake Greenwood.
