View of islands on Lake Keowee

Framed against the Blue Ridge Mountains, the blue waters of Lake Keowee have been called the most beautiful in the South.


 

Lake Keowee boasts 300 miles of shoreline, countless coves and islands, and the perfect climate for a year-round, active lifestyle.


An active lifestyle community on Lake Keowee


Lake Keowee was created by Duke Energy in the 1970s to provide power to the Carolinas, as well as recreation opportunities for residents and visitors.  The water level is kept within a specific range by drawing water from Lake Jocassee, located just north of Lake Keowee.
 
This means the pristine, blue waters of Lake Keowee will continue to provide year-round enjoyment, year after year.  Twenty-eight miles long, with twenty-four uninhabited islands, Lake Keowee invites exploration, sunset cruises, and picnics on the beach!
