The lake seen below is a reservoir in Greer, formally named Lake Cunningham and affectionately known as “Greer Lake” by locals. The 376-acre lake is part of the Greer water system and supplies drinking water to the city along with neighboring 840-acre Lake Robinson.
Lake Cunningham is also a popular destination spot; a prevalence of large-mouth bass attract fishermen to the water’s surface and the pier, and a park and covered picnic shelter are available for times when the fish are slow to bite. The lake was created by the damming of the South Tyger River. Boat restrictions limit watercraft to 10 horespower, making the lake appealing to paddlers.
