Oconee County Overview

Oconee County, South Carolina was established in 1868 and as of the 2010 census, the population was 74,273. Its county seat is Walhalla; however, Seneca is the largest community. South Carolina Highway 11, the Cherokee Foothills National Scenic Highway, begins in southern Oconee County at Interstate Highway 85 at the Georgia state line. Part of the Savannah River basin area, the county has 47 square miles of water, plus 626 square miles of land. The hilly landscape has created a haven for man-made lakes. Three large man-made lakes provide residents with sport fishing, water skiing, and sailing as well as hydroelectric power. The largest lake is Lake Hartwell, built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers between 1955 and 1963. Lake Keowee is the second largest lake and the Oconee Nuclear Station operates by the lake. Lake Jocassee is the third largest and is also a source of hydroelectric energy but is also popular for its breathtaking scenery and numerous waterfalls. Bad Creek Reservoir, located in the mountains above Jocassee, is for generating electricity during peak hours. The water level can fall by tens of feet per hour and during off-peak times water is pumped back into the lake for the next peak period. Because of this, boating and swimming are prohibited in the reservoir. Adjacent counties include some in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia: Jackson County, North Carolina – north, Transylvania County, North Carolina – northeast, Pickens County – east, Anderson County – southeast, Hart County, Georgia – south, Franklin County, Georgia – south, Stephens County, Georgia – southwest, Habersham County, Georgia – west, Rabun County, Georgia – west, and Macon County, North Carolina – northwest. Oconee is also home to a portion of national protected Sumter National Forest. The Oconee region is mentioned in the song “Yankee Bayonet (I Will Be Home Then)” by the indie rock group the Decemberists, on their 2006 album The Crane Wife. The reference is “When I was a girl how the hills of Oconee made a seam to hem me in.” Of the 12 zip codes assigned to the county, the most populous is 29678.
