• River: Wateree River
• Length: 242 Miles
• Surface Area: 1,400 Acres
Lake Wateree is a 19 square miles reservoir in Kershaw, Fairfield, and Lancaster counties, South Carolina, in the United States. It is one of South Carolina's oldest man-made lakes. It has 242 miles of shoreline and includes Lake Wateree State Recreation Area, a bird refuge, and Shaw Air Force Base Recreation center. Its name, like that of the river, recalls the now-extinct Wateree Native Americans, who lived in the area until disposessed by European settlers.
Owned and managed by Duke Energy (formerly Duke Power), Lake Wateree was created in 1920 when the Wateree River was dammed. The Wateree Hydro Station produces 56 megawatts of electricity. This created a lake of nearly 14,000 acres with 190 miles of shoreline touching three counties.
Lake Wateree is another South Carolina lake known for its great fishing and bountiful wildlife. The fish include Largemouth Bass, Striped bass, White Perch, White bass, Crappie, Channel catfish, Arkansas Blue Catfish, Shellcrackers, Bream.
Other wildlife that call Lake Wateree home include deer, fox, squirrel, turtle, dove, turkey, alligator, wild Boskos, and various species of duck, hawk, eagle, egret, Heron and osprey.
