Devils Fork State Park

Devils Fork State Park attracts many trout fishers and swimmers and is the one part of Lake Jocassee open to the public.

Devils Fork State Park is located in the middle of the Jocasee Gorges, a series of steep-sided gorges carrying surging mountain rivers and streams down to the Piedmont, according to the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism.

The mountain spring-fed Lake Jocassee, waterfalls accessible only by boat and some of the best trout fishing in South Carolina all make Devils Fork State Park such a special place, the department notes.

“The land around 9,000-acre Lake Jocassee remains mostly undeveloped. Four mountain streams and several waterfalls feed into the lake, making it cooler than others and a great South Carolina trout fishing spot. Plus, the unusually clear water of Lake Jocassee is a haven for scuba divers and swimmers. During the spring months, hikers on the two trails are treated to sightings of the endangered Oconee bell wildflower,” the park’s official site says.

The rare Oconee Bell blooms from mid-March to early April at the park and can be seen in full bloom along the Oconee Bell Trail. The rare flower can only be found in a few locations within the mountains of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, according to park officials.
