Lake Jocassee is a “paddlers” paradise with waterfalls that empty into the lake, many of which are hidden in the craggy coves and are only found by their sound, which results in a uniquely primitive and memorable experience.Leaving from the remote campground boat access of Devil’s Fork State Park campground is the nearest launch to these falls. Finding and viewing these falls requires padding across a large expanse of open water on a large lake but the boat traffic is minimal especially during the week. The sounds and views are breathtaking and worth the hour or so of open water paddling. This lake has 7,500 acres of deep water and 75 miles of shoreline. The lake is named Jocassee, “place of the lost one,” after a Cherokee Legend. Jocassee, an Indian maiden, was said to have drowned herself in grief over the murder of her lover. The popular recreation area is surrounded by mountains and waterfalls.
