Click Image For Better Viewing Nestled along the shores of Lake Jocassee, with a picturesque background of the Jocassee Gorges Wilderness Area, lies Devils Fork State Park.

Located along the southwestern shore of Lake Jocassee, this park provides outdoor recreation amid the beauty of the Blue Ridge at the Jocassee Gorges.

Lakefront camping, hiking and picnicking are among some of the favorite activities, along with vacationing in the park's contemporary mountain villas.

The park provides access to the cool deep waters of the Jocassee, where anglers try their luck for trout and other species, and boaters drive to remote islands or sites of waterfalls spilling into the lake.
