Lake Keowee

Lake Keowee

In the '70s, in the name of hydroelectric power, Duke Energy dammed the Keowee and Little Rivers in upstate South Carolina, creating an oddly shaped lake -– some say a Christmas tree -– and a haven for water recreationists and retired golfers. Keowee Key, a community with a full roster of amenities, including a George Cobb golf course, led the way near the southern edge of the 26-mile long lake, 15 minutes from the university town of Clemson. Keowee Key attracted upscale company in the 1990s and 2000s when The Reserve at Lake Keowee and the Cliffs Communities developed along the shoreline of one of the cleanest lakes in the east.
