A cool water pristine lake situated in extreme northern South Carolina(fingers of the lake actually poke into North Carolina). What is most striking about the lake, other than the scenic beauty, is that it is almost totally devoid of buildings, owned by Duke Energy and not available for development. Access to the lake is through Devils Fork State Park, entrance... More

We hired a man with a boat to take us out on the lake to view waterfalls flowing into the lake. He did not disappoint. Stunning views and well worth seeing if you have the time. We spent around 2 - 3 hours there. The emerald waters on a sunny day is so relaxing.

We have taken our boat out on this lake several times and love it. The scenery is beautiful, and we love the history of the area. There are also some hidden waterfalls and we like that it is not populated with houses.

My brother, his nine-year old and I had occasion recently to visit this lovely lake. Mid-January is probably not the perfect season for it, but wanted to walk a few trails and just have a general look around. I'm a recent resident of this area of SC (living in Greenville, near Furman U), but my brother has been here for... More

Nice place to visit and see the scenic landscape. Access to the lake and trails is good. Nice hiking trails through mountain forests, with several brooks, creeks, and waterfalls.

This has got to be one of the most beautiful camping destinations! The lake is simply beautiful. We camped out on Devils Fork state Park. Came by boat across the lake and got to see most of the waterfalls! This place has so much to explore that you almost need 4 days to do it all. I already want to... More

This was our third time renting a pontoon boat and exploring lake Jocassee. We have found different things each time...a rock to slide from into the lake, waterfalls and islands to explore and have lunch at. We also rent a tube which the boat pulls around the wide open bodies of water making for lots of fun for the kids.... More

Let me start put by saying, this is one beautiful lake. Wife and I started doing these weekend trips throught our state we live in. We rented a canoe and went as far as our arms could take us. The sights are amazing the water was no colder than the Atlantic ocean. The rental I thought was a good price... More

Made a 3-day trip to Jocassee during my daughter's spring break, probably should have stayed for a week. The lake is beautiful and we hiked around to waterfalls and to see the endangered Oconee Bell flowers on a trail in Devil's Fork State Park. Overall a great outdoor experience.
