  • We spent the day at Devils Fork State Park. We had a beautiful day on the water and are making plans to camp here next year.  more »
  • Nice Peaceful Campground right on Lake Jocassee. Tent sites are right beside the lake, but require a walk from a parking lot to get to them. The tent pads are well packed and the little pathways are....  more »
  • One of my favorite places to camp. The water is so clear. We kayak here after the summer. No longer that crowded. The waterfalls are beautiful too. Friendly staff. Clean restroom. Awesome place. Coming back soon. The camp site is just near the water. Boat ramp is available to launch kayak and canoes. This is South Carolina' s gem. We cant wait to go back soon.
  • This was our first trip here and the place is great! There is admission to the park, but very affordable. If you go to a lot of state parks, a park pass may be worth considering. The water here is clear, clean, and refreshing. Everyone working there was friendly. Lots of families, couples, and groups of friends. You can fish, boat, kayak, canoe, swim, hike the trail, camp, etc. You will find an area for swimming marked with a yellow rope; it is too shallow for boats to enter and everyone was swimming in it. You will find a place around it for a chair or towel, but there is minimal room right near the water. There is a rental place on site for everything, too! There are waterfalls, but you only can access them via water. Get a map and it will help! I kayaked with an 8 and 5 year as well as with another adult and child in a separate kayak. None of us had kayaked before, though I canoed, and we did fine. If you plan on renting a kayak or canoe, the tandem kayak can hold a small child in the middle + 2 others and the canoe can hold 2 adults + 2 kids or 1 adult + 3 kids. Plenty of places to stop on your water adventures to swim or snack! When we left, my 8 year old when said, "We need to vacation here!".
