Nov 18, 2021

Why Lake Keowee is Considered One of the Best Lakes to Live On

Lake Keowee, which lies in South Carolina’s upper corner, has picturesque coves and shorelines that run for miles. As one of the best lakes to live on, Lake Keowee offers a breathtaking landscape and plenty to do. Lake Keowee’s mild climate makes it possible to enjoy the lake almost every single day. 

Discover a world of play and luxury living made for families, retirees, and anyone seeking a higher standard of living. 

The Wonders of The Water

Lake Keowee is famous for its turquoise water that reflects the surrounding landscape of trees and distant mountains. A popular lake among active individuals and outdoor enthusiasts, Lake Keowee is known for its abundance of water sports and outdoor activities.

This lake offers amateur anglers the chance to compete with the big boys and catch plenty of spotted bass, largemouth bass, crappie, and native redeye bass. Alternatively, if you’d rather swim with the fishes than catch them, take advantage of the warm waters that can be enjoyed for the vast majority of the year. Moreover, water skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, canoeing, and paddleboarding are extremely popular here. 

Here at The Cliffs, many of our homeowners are passionate about getting out on the water as often as possible. Members also benefit from the additional perks of a full-service marina, Beach Club, Surf Shop, and community docks to accommodate all of their water recreational needs.
