LAKE HARTWELL SC

Lake Hartwell is a man-made reservoir bordering Georgia and South Carolina on the Savannah, Tugaloo, and Seneca Rivers. Lake Hartwell is one of the southeast’s largest and most popular recreation lakes.

Homes for sale on Lake Hartwell are some of the most expensive properties in the Upstate. 

 

All the traditional lake recreational activities can be seen and done here on Lake Hartwell: 

  • Camping. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages 9 campgrounds at Lake Hartwell with a total of 524 campsites. Many of the campgrounds include restrooms, showers, boat ramps, playgrounds, electric and water hookups, courtesy docks, group camping, and designated swimming areas.
  • Biking trail. The Corps of Engineers Lake Hartwell office partnered with the Southern Off-Road Bicycle Association (SORBA) to build a 7.6 miles (12.2 km) multi-purpose trail at the Paynes Creek Campground area.
  • Fishing. Hartwell is home to many different types of fish including largemouth bass, bream, hybrid and striped bass, crappie, white bass, trout, and walleye.
  • Swimming. The lake is suitable for swimming but there have been over 200 deaths on the lake through the years.
  • Water sports. The Lake is a venue for a variety of sports such as tubing, water skiing, and wakeboarding.
  • Boating. Boating is a huge part of the recreation side of Lake Hartwell. There are five marinas along the lake, including Clemson Marina, Big Water Marina, Harbor Light Marina, Hartwell Marina, and Portman Marina as well as many public boat ramps. The lake also features the private Western Carolina Sailing Club that hosts an annual regatta in October to benefit Hospice of the Upstate.

LAKE JOCASSEE

Is a 7,500-acre, 300-foot deep reservoir located in northwest upstate South Carolina created by the state in partnership with Duke Power in 1973. The lake is commonly known for the clean and cold Appalachian mountain rivers that feed the lake to keep its waters cool and clear year-round. The lake is within Devils Fork State Park. There are four different smaller rivers that feed into Lake Jocassee. Similar to Lake Hartwell, as one can guess the real estate for sale on Lake Jocassee is some of the most premium property in the Upstate near Greenville / Spartanburg SC. The same fish species as in Lake Hartwell can also be found in Jocassee. 

 


LAKE KEOWEE

Also a man-made reservoir this lake was created to serve the needs of a power utility (Duke Energy) as well as public recreational purposes. It is approximately 26 miles long, 3 miles wide, with an average depth of 54 feet, and a shoreline measured at 300 miles in total and is approximately 800 feet above sea level. The lake is connected by damn to Lake Jocassee and as you can imagine shares the same recreational activities as the other two Greenville SC area lakes of Hartwell and Jocassee.

As with most of the lakes around the upstate, they are Indian names from the Cherokee tribe located in Oconee County.
