The Ridge on Lake Russell    Phase 1 Now Open!


Richard B. Russell Lake, simply known as "Lake Russell" is a pristine reservoir lake created by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the Savannah River bordering Elbert County, Georgia and Abbeville and Anderson counties in South Carolina.  Lake Russell is a 26,650 acre lake with 540 miles of shoreline.  Unlike other lakes,  Lake Russell is designed to operate within 5 feet of full pool and always looks full. Unlike Lake Hartwell and Lake Strom Thurmond, federal regulations prohibit private use of the public lands surrounding Lake Russell.  In other words, no private docks are permitted on the lake's shoreline making Lake Russell an excellent fishing lake for bass and crappie. The Corps owns a 300' buffer zone all the way around the shoreline to mitigate the loss of habitat creating an almost completely undeveloped shoreline with the exception of some state parks and day-use areas.


Here's your opportunity to own a piece of nature and tranquility on one of the most beautiful lakes in the Southeast.

Check back often as more information will be provided.



This property would be perfect for a permanent cabin in the woods or a place to put your camper or park your RV! It has all of the comforts of civilization yet you are in a pristine, relatively undeveloped part of Lake Russell! You can't go wrong!
