Lake John Robinson nestled between Greer, SC and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains is a man-made lake on the South Tyger River. The lake is operated by Greer Commission of Public Works.
Because it is a protected watershed, boat travel is limited to those with less than 10 horsepower, ensuring a serene experience amid beautiful wilderness.
Public access is provided by a public boat ramp and fishing pier. Boats up to 18 feet long with motors up to 10 horsepower are allowed on the lake. All watercraft must have a reservoir boat permit as well as a state vessel registration. If you would like to fish you will need a reservoir fishing permit as well as a state fishing license.
To enjoy the lake year round there are several lake communities on or near the lake, like Still Water or Blue Ridge Plantation. Stillwater offers Charleston-Style southern charm and is brimming with amenities, like Nature Trail, Botanical Garden, Farmer’s Market or Lake House. Stillwaters of Lake Robinson offers the sanctuary of gated, low-maintenance living with an abundance of nearby cultural opportunities.
Blue Ridge Plantation’s Lakeside Community is a custom home community offering homeowners wooded lots, a lakeside picnic area, exterior home accents, and lakefront lots.
