Lake Keowee Snowfall – Oconee County, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Oconee County Photos | Lake Keowee Snowfall
Lake Keowee in Oconee County was built by Duke Power Company to generate hydroelectric power. Its creation flooded Keowee Town, which was the capital of the Lower Cherokee Nation. Keowee means “Place of the Mulberries” and is a popular place for boating, fishing, water-skiing, swimming, camping, and picnicking.
The lake spans over 18,500 acres predominately in Oconee County, but it also extends into Pickens County. Lake Keowee is a valuable source of energy in northwestern South Carolina, and its quiet beauty is unparalleled.
SCIWAY thanks Gene Borman for submitting this picture he took from his Lake Keowee home on a snowy day in March 2010.
