My wife and I purchased our property in 1990, and moved to the Clarks Hill Lake (also known as Lake Strom Thurmond) area in 2012. Our only regret is that we didn't move here sooner! We love the natural beauty of the area, the caring and friendly people, and the active lake and golf lifestyle.
I am extremely passionate about this community, all it has to offer, and how it changes lives. That's why I help more people move to the lake are than any other real estate agent in the area. Our cost of living is lower than almost any other part of the country, and property taxes are just a fraction of those found elsewhere.
Whether you are looking a planned community like Savannah Lakes Village with golf, tennis/pickleball, and social activities, or you are searching for a more private lakefront home, I have the expertise to help you find it.
I look forward to speaking with you and finding out what is most important to you in your new home and community. Feel free to call or email me, and we can discuss how I can help you find your next home.
Clarks Hill Lake is Georgia's largest reservoir and one of the largest inland bodies of water in the South, with more than 71,000 acres and 1,200 miles of a shoreline covered in a mix of pine trees and hardwoods.
More than 100 islands are spread across Clarks Hill Lake, which extends some 40 miles up the Savannah River valley and 26 miles up the Little River valley.
The lake is about 30 miles from the historic city of Augusta.
Millions of people visit its many public parks, marinas, and campgrounds annually, making it one of the ten most-visited Corps lakes in the country.
Georgia shares this reservoir with South Carolina, where it is called by its official name, J. Strom Thurmond Lake, changed by act of Congress in 1988. (In Georgia the original name was restored the next year.)
Clarks Hill is the first of three reservoirs on the Savannah River, along with Hartwell Lake and Richard B. Russell Lake.
Clarks Hill is an extremely popular lake for boating and fishing, but with many areas of open water, the lake is rarely crowded.
The Dorn Boating and Sportfishing Facility, the largest boat launching and sportfishing facility in the Southeastern U.S., is among the lake's amenities.
Clarks Hill is a fertile lake known for some of the best bass fishing in Georgia. In addition to largemouth, striped and hybrid bass, channel and flathead catfish, crappie, and sunfish are common.
From campers who want every available comfort to those who want to really rough it, Clarks Hill Lake has a number of campgrounds that are among the finest in the East.
The Bussey Point Wilderness recreation area, more than 2,500 acres located on a peninsula of the lake, has a new horseback riding trail to complement its extensive hiking and mountain biking trails.
