Les McCall

 

Executive Director

Les@lakehartwellcountry.com

An Oconee County native, Les McCall has a lifelong passion for Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties SC. A graduate of Clemson University, he has travelled a bit of the world but found no place more beautiful than Lake Hartwell Country. "The ancient mountains, the wild rivers, historic towns and of course, deep, clearwater lakes...what more could you want?" An outdoorsman at heart, a weekend well spent for Les is outside with the family, hiking, kayaking, or fishing one of the many trout streams in the region. He lives with his wife, children and two dogs in the mountains of Long Creek SC.
