The History of Savannah Lakes Village
SLV, a private community established with the assistance of the State of South Carolina, was developed by Cooper Communities, Inc. based in Rogers, Arkansas. SLV consists of more than 4,000 acres with over 20 miles of shoreline on Lake Thurmond. Lake Thurmond is the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi, spanning over 70,000 acres.
The first lots went on sale on April 1, 1989. There are a total of 4,995 lots within SLV, with all infrastructure and underground utilities complete. The amenities include two 18-hole golf courses, two clubhouses and golf shops, an activity center and access to Lake Thurmond. There are approximately 78 miles of paved roads within SLV, all of which have been dedicated to McCormick County. Savannah Lakes Village transitioned out of developer control in 1998 and is now governed solely by the SLV POA.
Savannah Lakes Village is a premier community in the Southeast and is beautifully situated along 25 miles of lakefront shoreline in western South Carolina.
