Lake Jocassee is an undeveloped reservoir nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Paddlers enjoy crystal clear water, mountain views, excellent fishing, many lake-side waterfalls, and a boat-in only campground. The reservoir is fed by four major rivers: the Whitewater River, the Horsepasture River, the Toxaway River, and the Thompson River. While you share the lake with motor boats, there are many opportunities to explore coves and shoreline that are off the beaten path. Devil's Fork State Park, on the south end of the lake, provides opportunities developed access and opportunities for lodging and camping, including a boat-in campground. The northern and eastern parts of the lake are bordered by Jocassee Gorges, an area protected and made accessible to the public by SC Department of Natural Resources.
