Calhoun Falls State Recreation Area is located on Lake Russell, one of South Carolina's most popular and undeveloped large reservoirs. Lake Russell was created in 1984 and the 26,650-acre reservoir is surrounded by another 26,000 acres of public land. Calhoun Falls gets its name form the first settler, James Edward Calhoun, who settled near rocky shoals on the Savannah River that are now under the lake. The lake provides excellent fishing for bass, bluegill, crappie and catfish. The 318-acre park provides lakeside camping, a hiking trail, picnicking tennis courts and a seasonal swimming area. In addition, 15 miles of equestrian trails are located at nearby McCalla, more than 6,000 acres of S.C. State Park Service property managed through Calhoun Falls State Recreation Area.
