In the 1950s, the Spartanburg region experienced a considerable increase in population. At the time, the population of Spartanburg County had risen to well over 150,000 people, with that number expected to significantly grow in the coming decades. To meet the steadily increasing demand of water usage and to ensure an adequate water supply for the future of Spartanburg County, Lake William C. Bowen was constructed in 1960. Located within the South Pacolet River Basin, Lake Bowen was formed by the waters of the South Pacolet River and its tributaries.

Today, Lake Bowen encompasses 1,534 acres and contains approximately 33 miles of shoreline. Along with providing an adequate water supply, Lake Bowen offers many recreational activities like boating and fishing. Visitors can also enjoy Anchor Park, a recreational park provided by Spartanburg Water that offers picnic pavilions, waterfront access for fishing, a playground, two boat ramps, and the Lake Bowen Warden’s Office.

Although the landscape around Lake Bowen has experienced much change over the past 50 years, the lake itself has remained a sound, focal point of the region. Throughout the coming years, the Lake Bowen area will continue to experience change, with new possibilities, an influx of new families, and promising growth. Amidst the change, Lake Bowen will continue to be the vital link it has always been for the Spartanburg region, providing an adequate water supply and a variety of recreational activities to the residents of Spartanburg County and the surrounding region.
