Introduction


The mountain spring-fed Lake Jocassee encompassed by the Jocassee Gorges, waterfalls accessible only by boat and some of the best South Carolina trout fishing are all part of the allure of Devils Fork State Park.

The land around 7,500-acre Lake Jocassee remains mostly undeveloped and the only public access point to the lake is through Devils Fork. Four mountain streams and several waterfalls feed into the lake, making it cooler than others and a great South Carolina trout fishing spot. Plus, the unusually clear water of Lake Jocassee is a haven for scuba divers and swimmers. During the spring months, hikers on the two trails are treated to sightings of the endangered Oconee bell wildflower.

Overnight guests can stay in a fully-furnished villa or in one of two campgrounds located near Lake Jocassee.

Want to see more of South Carolina? Try fishing for bass at Dreher Island State Park and enjoy boating and more on the Strom Thurmond Reservoir at Hickory Knob State Park.
