Lake Robinson In Greer South Carolina
Welcome to Lake Robinson Lake Robinson is a pristine recreational area just northwest of the City of Greer. The lake was created for drinking water originally from the Tyger River. Lake Robinson has a boat ramp, three fishing piers and event sites that can be rented out.
Planning for the lake began as early as 1968, and by the mid-1970s, the swampy woods that once stood here were being cleared for the lake’s basin. The Lake Robinson dam was finished by November of 1984. The lake began to fill later that month, taking around 10 months to complete. Once finished, Lake Robinson provided the City of Greer with both drinking water and 27 miles of shoreline for recreation.
The lake was named after an original member of the Greer Commission of Public Works, John A. Robinson. The lake is approximately 800 acres and is excellent for boating, fishing, kayaking, and paddleboarding. In fact, the Greenville News called Robinson a “small jewel” for our community because of its abundance of fish.
