Recreation Facilities

Lake Whelchel

Our customer service representatives will also be happy to assist you in reserving the Lake Whelchel picnic facilities. In order to reserve the picnic facilities, customers must come to the main office to sign an agreement and post a $100.00 deposit ($65.00 will be refunded after use provided facilities are cleaned properly). Fishing is allowed with a valid SC Fishing License. Boating permits are available to Cherokee County residents for a $25.00 annual fee.

The boat landing and picnic facilities are located just off I-85 at exit 95. Take the service road (Wilcox Avenue), directly in front of the UPS Trucking terminal, and turn right onto Sierra Drive then bear right onto Boat Landing Drive.
