Lake Keowee – Oconee County, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Oconee County Photos  |  Lake Keowee

Lovely Lake Keowee is located mainly in Oconee County, but also extends into neighboring Pickens County. The lake was built by Duke Power Company to generate hydroelectric power, and covers Keowee Town which was the site of the capital of the Lower Cherokee Nation. This town was visited by the Spanish explorer Henando DeSoto in 1540. The name Keowee means ‘Place of the Mulberries’.

Lake Keowee – Add Info and More Photos


The purpose of the South Carolina Picture Project is to celebrate the beauty of the Palmetto State and create a permanent digital repository for our cultural landmarks and natural landscapes. We invite you to add additional pictures (paintings, photos, etc) of Lake Keowee, and we also invite you to add info, history, stories, and travel tips. Together, we hope to build one of the best and most loved SC resources in the world!
