Lake Keowee has a relatively stable water level vs Lake Hartwell. It is ~27 miles top-bottom, ~18,500 acres of water and perfect for pontoons. It is rural with decent access to Seneca for your run of the mill big box shopping needs. The farther north you go on the shore, the greater the wow factor for mountain vistas. Excellent access to the very large state park system at the north end of the lake.

State Rd 28 runs along the west side. It is a perfect road for bikers and sports cars heading north (in fact the road is known as Moonshiner 28) into the Tennessee mountains. Deals Gap, Blue Ridge parkway, SC 178, SC 130 (and their companion roads in NC) are terrific day trips for bikers. Be advised .... mountain driving rules apply down here .... if you're poking along on a cruiser and see a sport bike or sports car coming up behind you .... pull over to let them by at the first available pull off. Its how we do things in the mountains.

THANKS! great info

Also, I am not looking to live on a lake. I want more house for $ and lake front always comes at a cost
I lived in a lake community on Keowee several years ago - I bought an "interior lot" house with a partial view of the lake for a fraction of the cost of a lake front home. Additionally, this subdivision had its own private boat launch (as a part of their yearly HOA fees of only $50). So, in essence, you can live on the lake.

headed down to Westminster SC next week to look around
Hmm...Westminster - there's nothing there - I'd start in Clemson/Seneca, then into Walhalla/Salem, and then Lake Jocassee. Also, take a look at Anderson county with Lake Hartwell. I think you expressed an interest Lake Thurmond as well - that's down near McCormick.

Are you able to stay fairly active in outdoor activity through winter in this corner of SC? I know you have 4 seasons and it will not be like Florida, but I am trying to get a feel for how severe winter weather could be--cost for heat etc... .
