When we visit Lake Jocassee we ride by the rock wall to see if there is much scuba diving action and then we start riding around to the many waterfalls. There's nothing like finding a private cove with a waterfall splashing in the back of the cove. We usually pack a lunch and enjoy lunch on the boat in between coves and swimming. There are some cabins and camp sites available for rent at Devils Fork State Park. This is a fantastic way to spend a weekend of solitude and serenity.
(From Wikipedia): Lake Jocassee is a 7,500-acre (30 km2), 300-foot (91 m) deep reservoir located in northwest South Carolina created by the state in partnership with Duke Power in 1973. The lake is commonly known for the clean and cold Appalachian mountain rivers that feed the lake to keep its waters cool and clear year-round. The Jocassee Dam, which forms the lake, is 385 feet (117 m) high and 1,750 feet (530 m) long. The lake is within Devils Fork State Park.
Although most manmade structures were demolished prior to the creation of the lake, divers recently discovered the remains of a lodge which was left intact until the lake rose; it is now below 300 feet of water. Mount Carmel Baptist Church Cemetery was a setting for a scene in the film Deliverance (1972), starring Burt Reynolds and Jon Voight, produced before the lake was flooded. The site is now covered by 130 feet of water in the lake.
