This lake is called Clarks Hill Lake on the Georgia side and Strom Thurmond Lake on the South Carolina side. It was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1954 for flood prevention and hydroelectric power. This lake dwarfs most other lakes in South Carolina with the exception of the Santee Cooper Lakes. Clarks Hill is the third lake in a chain of lakes built by the U.S. Corps of Engineers on the Savannah River near North Augusta, SC and Augusta Georgia. The three lakes in order are Lake Hartwell (50,000 acres), Lake Russell (26,450 acres, and finally Clarks Hill (70,000 acres).
Just like the other Savannah River lakes, Lake Thurmond has more than enough public access areas to accommodate all those who want to visit. Consequently, there are three state parks located on the South Carolina side and several on the Georgia side.
Most of the shoreline is undeveloped with a view of wilderness in any direction you look. Sometimes you can see deer, hawks, beavers, and once in a while a bald eagle. The surrounding pine forest and red clay banks are only broken by the occasional boat ramp area or campsites.
