Lake Keowee

Since 1971, Lake Keowee's 17,660 acres of water and 300 miles of shoreline have been a valuable source of energy and recreation in northwestern South Carolina. Keowee was the first lake developed as part of Duke Energy's Keowee-Toxaway Complex. The complex includes the Oconee Nuclear Station and the Keowee, Jocassee and Bad Creek hydroelectric stations.

Full pond elevation at Lake Keowee is 800 feet. The lake provides a dependable water supply for Greenville and Seneca, South Carolina.

Duke Energy has partnered with South Carolina for the establishment of the 1,000 acre Keowee-Toxaway State Park. Campers can also enjoy the county-managed 155-acre Mile Creek Park, the 40-acre South Cove Park, and 44-acre High Falls Park (all leased from Duke Energy). Another 373 acres along Eastotoe Creek have been turned over to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources for management as a natural area.

Duke Energy provides six additional boat access areas on the lake in cooperation with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
