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

Devils Fork State Park villas are just right for glampers.

The park offers 20 villas with flat-screen TVs, hardwood floors and granite countertops. Screened porches are a real treat, especially on units facing 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 accommodate up to six people; the five three-bedroom, two-bath villas accommodate up to eight. Five villas are pet-friendly, so you don't have to leave your best friend behind.

Standard Campsites

Woman, man, boys, firepit, grill, picnic, table, food, trees, lake
Picnic tables and firepits are part of the camping experience at Devils Fork State Park.

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

Lakeside camping is a big perk when you stay at Devils Fork State Park.

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

Boat-in backcountry campsites are located on the northern shore of Lake Jocassee at Devils Fork.

If adventure is your middle name, paddle across Lake Jocassee to the Double Springs boat-in camping area. You'll find 25 campsites there, each outfitted with a tent pad, firepit - and nothing else. This is primitive camping, afterall. A composting toilet and a few outhouses dot the surrounding landscape. Some sites have water access, some do not. Reserve early to secure your favorite spot, and mind the rocky shoreline. Double Springs is pet-friendly, so leashed pets are welcome.
