“Outstanding area”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We stayed at Cabin 20 from 6 July through 9 July 2012. The lake, while the lake level was significantly lower than usual, was absolutely beautiful. The water is clear. A boat only adds to the beauty of the lake with mountains in the background. Our cabin was recently renovated which had granite counter tops, great fireplace and large screened in room. The grands enjoyed fishing especially since they could see the fish biting their line. Like others, one ranger was not very friendly.

“Should stay a secret.”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Beautiful lake but can get very crowded. Last year on July 4th there was no parking available. Cabins on the lake are a great budget friendly vacation.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

My husband and I decided to go camping this weekend and ended up at Lake Jocasse. Overall it was a very good experience. We stayed in a "rustic hike in tent" site and we will most likely do that again. These sites had no electricity like the other "drive in" site but were much more spaced out and had very quick access to (mostly) private sandy beaches. The trails to the site was paved and not very long. Our site was completely shaded and had fresh mulch on the ground around the picnic table.

Overall there were some kids/dogs being somewhat noisy, but nothing out of ordinary! Since it was a hike in we had no complaints about road noise, etc. We didn't have any problem with wildlife, etc.

The bathroom facilities were clean and not too crowded although they would have been improved if they offered soap to wash your hands with.

The beaches were wonderful- sandy and clear water. The waterfalls were accessible by boat only, but we make a short car trip to the foothills trail and hiked about 2 miles to see the whitewater falls.

As I said before, we will probably be back. Would recommend!
