Crappie and Waterfalls
Beautiful Weiss Lake, known as the “Crappie Capital Of the World”, is the focal point of all recreational activities in Cherokee County. The lake consists of 30,200 acres, offering over 447 miles of shoreline and shallow flats, large coves, under-water drop offs and deep channels. Lake Weiss also has an abundance of privately owned hotels, marinas, campgrounds, and bait and tackle stores. Cherokee County is also home to the Civil War-era Cornwall Furnace (named to the National Register of Historic Places), the 250-acre Cherokee Rock Village, composed of enormous boulders of limestone and quartz, and is part of the Little River Canyon National Preserve, the deepest canyon east of the Mississippi River.
