Lake Keowee Real Estate Analysis

Jump To:

Lake Keowee is a man–made reservoir in the up state of South Carolina (Seneca Area.   It was created to serve the needs of a power utility company, 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. It began in 1971 as a massive demolition and building project, including the construction of two large dams––Keowee Dam and Little River Dam––and covered 18,372 acres of the state. The force of falling water through gravity helps generate hydroelectric power.  In addition, Lake Keowee has been touted as a recreational destination for fishing, boating, swimming, sailing, kayaking and other water sports, and the lake has been described as having pure and clean water.  The name Keowee is a Cherokee name roughly translated as “place of the mulberries.” The former Keowee River, which was inundated by Lake Keowee, had been part of the Cherokee Lower Towns region, and Keowee Town had been located on the bank of the Keowee River.  Lake Keowee is only 7 miles from Clemson University.
