Allen Creek is a Must for Fishing Lake Russell in South Carolina

South Carolina is home to 12 major lakes with sizes ranging from 7,500 acres to 110,000 acres. The lakes in South Carolina have contrasting views that make them unique such as Lake Jocassee in the upstate mountains and the swampy wilderness of Lake Marion in the lowlands of South Carolina. No matter where you are in South Carolina there is always a major lake in driving range.

All the lakes mentioned on this website have all the amenities you need for a great lake vacation or day trip. Also, all of these lakes have campgrounds and public landings for boating. Consequently, you can also find South Carolina state parks on most of these lakes.

This website provides photos and information about each of these major lakes including lake specifications, business information, and direct links to buy waterproof lake maps for the lake you choose.

Decorate Your Lake House with South Carolina Art

If you happen to own a lake house in South Carolina, a good decorating idea is to use artwork which features the local lakes.  An even better idea is to buy artwork that features the exact lake your home is located on.  Of course, in South Carolina finding artwork featuring these local lakes is almost impossible to find.  However, I can now provide you with an opportunity to own locally produced artwork for these lakes.   

Currently, I have paintings of Lake Greenwood, Lake Keowee, and Lake Jocassee currently available for sale on this website from a local artist in South Carolina. There will be more lake paintings added to this website as soon as they are completed by the artist. Most paintings will be 16” X 20” Acrylic on canvas.  They are suitable for framing or can be hung as is.   At a later time, I will be adding prints of these paintings to this website.  Click here to see the featured artwork:  Catalog - Artwork 

All the artwork featured on southcarolinalakes.net is being produced by the Elizabeth White, a resident of South Carolina.  Her work has been featured in numerous art galleries in South Carolina such as the Art of Recovery 2012 held at the Columbia State Museum located in Columbia South Carolina and the Art of Recovery Piccolo Spoleto held in Charleston South Carolina 2013.  She has her own art gallery online at www.ewartwork.com
