Here is a great day trip for those in the Greenville South Carolina area.
Lake John Robinson in Greenville County is a 2,250 acre man-made lake on the South Tyger River operated by Greer Commission of Public Works. Public access is provided by a public boat ramp and fishing pier. Put in is a J. Verne Smith park.
We spent about 3 hours paddling to back of the lake from the city park. Nice view of mountains to North. Lake has a 10 hp engine size so very little boat traffic, a few fishermen. We saw lots of geese, blue heron and ducks.
No overnight facilities at park, picnic tables and outdoor grills
Permit require for fishing
Lake access is off Mays Bridge Road off South Carolina Highway 101 a few miles North of Greer.
