My husband and I are debating about the various pros and cons of these lakes. I say Glenville/Cashiers is overdeveloped and becomes uncomfortably crowded on the weekends. Not enough roads and one grocery store for masses of people (Ingles must be ecstatic with that location). Keowee still has quiet areas and seems to have enough roads to handle the lake traffic. I guess Glenville is cooler in the summer, but what about all the rain??? Anyway, if anyone wants to weigh in on this discussion, I would welcome it! Particularly if you like Keowee the best...

Keowee has the nuclear plant. I'm not sure if that is a concern for Glenville/Cashiers.... that would be a factor for health and resale considerations.

Glenville is in a more scenic area. I prefer Jocassee, but like Keowee too.

Have you visited both lakes? They are very, very different. Lake Glenville is scenic but very remote. It's hard for me to imagine someone who has been there describing it as overdeveloped and crowded.

Lake Keowee does have some quieter areas but also has a lot more development along the shoreline and part of it is adjacent to the small city of Seneca.
