The mountain spring-fed Lake Jocassee encompassed by the Jocassee Gorges, waterfalls accessible only by boat and some of the best South Carolina trout fishing are all part of the allure of Devils Fork State Park.

The land around 7,565-acre Lake Jocassee remains mostly undeveloped and the only public access point to the lake is through Devils Fork. 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 Oconee Bell Nature Trailare treated to sightings of the endangered Oconee bell wildflower.

Overnight guests can stay in a fully-furnished villa or in one of two campgrounds located near Lake Jocassee.
South Carolina offers a variety of Park Passports. You can read more about the South Carolina Park Passports and order online by visiting the SOUTH CAROLINA PARK PASSPORTS web page.
Twenty villas are fully-furnished and include linens, all kitchen appliances, basic cooking and eating utensils, heat, air conditioning, microwave, satellite television, automatic coffee maker, screened porch, charcoal grill and picnic table.
Two campgrounds are located near the shores of Lake Jocassee. Restrooms with hot showers are conveniently located in the campgrounds.

Two picnic shelters are available on a first come first served basis.
Oconee BellNature Trail

Description This 1.5 mile loop within Devils Fork State Park gets its name from a rare wild flower that has gorgeous white blooms. Starting in the parking lot near the rear of the Ranger Station, this trail is plainly marked with white blazes and winds through a predominantly hardwood forest. The trail follows a creek that provides surreal sounds that add to its charm. In the early spring, endangered Oconee Bell wildflowers blossom along the creek. During your hike you will find benches that provide a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sounds of the lively forest. The trail is also endowed with a small pond that is a great place to view pond life.
