Whether you’re a hardcore camper, a pampered glamper or somewhere in between, ​Devils Fork State Park has lodging options to suit any outdoor enthusiast. From campsites to villas to places to park an RV, you’re sure to find a place to rest your head that will accommodate both your lifestyle and your budget.

Here are four options for staying in Devils Fork State Park.

​Devils Fork Villas

The park recently renovated its 20 villas, which now boast flat-screen televisions, hardwood floors and granite countertops. The screened porches on these villas are a real treat, especially on units that face Lake Jocassee. The villas come equipped with everything you’ll need for your stay: pillows and bed linens, towels, and a kitchen fully stocked with cups, plates, cookware and utensils.

The 15 two-bedroom, one-bath villas will accommodate up to six people; the five three-bedroom, two-bath villas will accommodate up to eight. Man’s best friend will have to sit this one out as there are no pets allowed in the villas.

Standard Campsites

There are 59 standard campsites at Devils Fork State Park where you can pitch your tent or park your RV. Standard campsites are equipped with 12-foot by 12-foot elevated tent pads, picnic tables, fire rings, water and electrical hook-ups and have access to restrooms and shower facilities. There is a limit of two tents per standard campsite, and some sites can accommodate RVs up to 40 feet in length. Pets are welcome as long as they are leashed at all times.

Rustic Tent Sites

For those who prefer a more traditional camping experience, one just south of “roughing it,” the park features 25 rustic (tent-only) campsites. These come equipped with 12-foot by 12-foot elevated tent pads, picnic tables and fire rings. Rustic campsites do not have water or electrical hook-ups, but they have access to restrooms and showers conveniently located in the campground. There is a limit of two tents per rustic campsite, and pets are welcome as long as they are leashed at all times.


Boat-In Campsites

If adventure is your middle name, consider setting up camp in one of the park’s 13 boat-in campsites. Accessible only by boat, these primitive campsites include fire rings and grill pits only; there’s no electricity, no water and no restroom facilities. You’ll also have to leave Fido at home since there are no pets allowed at the boat-in campsites.


Other Details

Lodging rates vary seasonally, and you’ll need to book in advance in order to reserve a villa or rustic campsite #13, which is arguably the most scenic campsite in the campground. Reservations may be made up to 11 months in advance.

The park also features laundry facilities and a public boat ramp. There’s not anywhere nearby to buy groceries, but you can pick up various odds and ends at the park’s ranger station or at the convenience store located just outside the park entrance.
