is the sister lake of Lake Jocassee. The lake is part of the Keowee-Toxaway project finished in 1973 by Duke Energy Corporation. At 18,500 acres, Lake Keowee is more than twice the size of Lake Jocassee. Another major difference between Keowee and Jocassee is the amount of development on the shoreline. There are many lakefront subdivisions located on this lake, and plenty more are being sold. The lake has a scenic mountain view with many beautiful homes on its shore. The water is clear but not as clear as the water in Lake Jocassee. Scuba diving is also possible at this lake, but the water depths are not as deep as in Lake Jocassee. There are about a dozen boat ramps, two marinas, four parks, and one bait & tackle store located on the lake.
