Twelvemile River Recreational Area in Pickens County, SC

Pickens County, Pickens, SC

The Twelvemile Recreation Area, located in a formerly distressed area of Pickens County, will allow citizens access to fishing, hiking, picnic areas, whitewater and flatwater paddling to this reestablished waterway while creating nearly 100 jobs.

This grant will help us better serve our community for years to come. We look forward to the long-term benefits of the Twelve Mile Recreation Area. We thank Duke Energy for its support and are eager to launch this project so that we can continue serving our local waterways.
