Clarks Hill Lake

Clarks Hill Lake lines the middle of the border between Georgia and South Carolina. This lake is known as Strom Thurmond Lake at the federal level by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and the State of Georgia legally named it Clarks Hill Lake in 1989. Clarks Hill Lake spreads over the counties of Columbia, Elberton, Lincoln, and McDuffie in Georgia on the west, and Abbeville and McCormick Counties in South Carolina on the east. The Broad, Little, and Savannah Rivers feed Clarks Hill Lake.   More Lake Information
