The Clemson Rowing boathouse is located on the western edge of Clemson’s campus, overlooking beautiful Lake Hartwell. Only a quarter of a mile from the other athletic facilities, the boathouse seems worlds apart lying in a secluded wooded area on the shore of one of the Southeast’s largest lakes. With 56,000 acres of water and 962 miles of shoreline, Lake Hartwell offers plenty of rowable water. Built as an Army Corps of Engineers project in 1962, the lake includes many pristine rivers, creeks and inlets that provide sheltered water on even the windiest of days.
Construction was recently completed on a new training facility, which is one of the best facilities in the ACC and the South Region. The 11,500 square foot facility houses an expanded locker room, additional workout space, a team meeting room, an athlete lounge, a kitchen, and coaches’ offices.
Lake Hartwell facilitates an ideal venue for the Tigers’ fully bouyed, six-lane 2000m race course. The entire course is visible from the boathouse.
Clemson finished the 2011 season in 15th place nationally at the NCAA tournament. All rowing events are free to the public.
