Seneca | Clemson | Pickens
Clemson is home to both Clemson University, ranked one of the top public universities in the country by both U.S. News & World Report and the Princeton Review, and to the Clemson Tigers, the university's nationally-recognized and incredibly spirited athletics program. Known as Mother Nature's Masterpiece, the famed Jocassee Gorges lay in the heart of Pickens County's mountain-lake terrain, providing endless opportunities for hiking, biking, boating and water sports. Jocassee Gorges stretch 42,500 acres and contains numerous rare and endangered species and two of the Southeast's four National Wild Rivers. Here you can experience the majesty of the Blue Wall, a geologically rich natural area known for its crystal-clear waters that encompasses Lake Jocassee (90% of the shorelines of which are protected in perpetuity) and Lake Keowee, home to The Cliffs at Keowee.
