reenwood’s mild climate and seasonal weather allows the outdoorsman many avenues for recreation. Lake Greenwood, which features over 11,000 acres of water along the borders
of Greenwood, Laurens, and Newberry counties, offers largemouth bass and crappie fishing and has become a popular destination
for boaters, kayakers and paddle boarders. Located within a 30-45 minute
drive of five different lakes, the area known as the “Lakelands” region has gained popularity with competitive and recreational fishing. The Lakelands region also offers a large number of campgrounds and parks. Many sites are located alongside one of the lakes in the area and feature lake swimming, hiking trails, and picnic areas for reunions and special events.
Connect Lake Greenwood (CLG) is a citizen led initiative that works to improve the quality of life in and around Lake Greenwood. For the first time a 20-year lake master plan was created in 2015 and adopted by the Greenwood County Council.
Key accomplishments have included:
• Bringing a signature restaurant, Break on the Lake, to the shores of Lake Greenwood, with opening slated for spring 2018.
• New lake gateway and directional signage.
• Safety lights on key bridges and train tressels.
• Development and distribution of the lake’s first ever Destination Guide.
• Development and implementation of the Interpretive Lake Signage project, featuring over 25 signs and maps across the lake documenting key historical events and stories of the lake’s heritage.
• Creation of an annual lake summit, Life on the Lake, held each spring to communicate key initiatives, projects, events, and future goals to interested stakeholders.
• Now in its 5th year, CLG facilitates and hosts the annual Lights on the Lake Fireworks Display, featuring live music and food celebrating Independence Day.
