Pickens County

Pickens County, South Carolina, features rolling hills to true mountains; South Carolina’s highest point, Sassafras Mountain, is in Pickens County, and Table Rock Mountain is famous for its distinctive exposed rock. Pickens County features the Upstate’s two large “mountain lakes,” Lake Keowee, and Lake Jocassee. Keowee is the much more popular, and populated, of the two, while Jocassee features almost no residential properties on its pristine shorelines.
