About Mountain Rest Lake

Mountain Rest Lake is an approximately 40 acre private lake in the unincorporated community of Mountain Rest, South Carolina. The lake is located in Oconee County in northwestern South Carolina near SC 28, also known as the Highlands Highway.

 

Mountain Rest Lake is fed by five natural streams, all of which help to maintain the constant lake water level. The lake has an elevation of 1,693 feet (516 meters) above sea level. It is part of the Tugaloo Watershed, one of two watersheds that cross Oconee County.

 

Mountain Rest Lake is actually a reservoir which was constructed in the 1950s by Mr. Leroy Brown. He built it near another lake (Brown's Lake) which he had previously created in the 1920s. This may be the reason that some maps including older Oconee County maps published by the State Department of Transportation depict Mountain Rest Lake as "Brown's Lake". However, according to the US Geographic Name Information System (GNIS) the approved name is "Mountain Rest Lake".

 

Mountain Rest Lake is surrounded by the Sumter National Forest and the foothills of the Appalachian Mountain Range. It is only about 3 miles southeast of the Chattooga River via the winding SC Highway 28. This location assures residents and visitors along the lake easy access to such outdoor activities as fishing, hiking and mountain biking.
