The Outdoors

Lake Keowee

The World of Energy is located on the shores of Lake Keowee, one of the most pristine lakes in all of South Carolina. While you're visiting, be sure to walk down to the World of Energy's peninsula to see the great views. You can also bring lunch and enjoy it from our picnic shelter or take a hike along our nature trail.
