Love lakes? We’re fortunate to have 4 wonderful lakes in Oconee County! Lake Jocassee and Lake Keowee are known for their pristine waters, waterfalls that you can swim under, endless mountain views and lots of room for all forms of water activity. Lake Hartwell is one of the Southeast’s largest and most popular public recreation lakes. Lake Tugaloo is a peaceful, primitive lake and a great place for anglers and paddlers.
