From blazing autumn to a seemingly endless summer, here residents and visitors can explore the Blue Ridge Mountains, state and national parks and the lake’s 18,500 surface acres all year long. Surrounded by clear mountain views, green is everywhere along Lake Keowee’s 300 miles of shoreline. The lake invites you to enjoy long days on the lake, fishing, water-skiing, kayaking and sailing ... or simply surround yourself with beautiful sunsets out on your boat.
When you’re ready for small-town charm, Seneca and the historic college town of Clemson, South Carolina -- with their collections of time-honored businesses and trendy restaurants -- are right around the corner. Crescent’s communities on Lake Keowee are also convenient to Highlands and Cashiers, North Carolina, placing an incredible amount of shopping, hiking and lazy day-tripping at your fingertips.
Located just off I-85, Lake Keowee is less than 45 minutes from Greenville, South Carolina, and 90 minutes from Atlanta, Georgia. Recognized for its small town charm, friendly people, natural beauty, and now its booming second-home market, Seneca was recently named one of "America's Top 100 Places to Live," according to Relocate-America, an online relocation service.
