Our Lakes

Spartanburg Water is proud to operate Lake Bowen and Lake Blalock, and we're committed to not only maintaining and preserving our watershed, but also ensuring that it remains the safe and natural home of our drinking water. Whether you're an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys the lake for its boating and fishing opportunities, or if you simply find peace in quiet walks around the water's edge, our dedicated staff of lake wardens is available to support you while they work hard to protect the lake's purpose, function and natural beauty.

Please take a moment to learn about the histories of the lakes, in addition to our many offerings: from boating safety classes to renting our Pavilion #1, or even to find out more about obtaining a boating permit.

We are committed to preserving our drinking water sources, and encourage you to explore and learn more about Lake Bowen and Lake Blalock.
