Lake Jocassee

Lake Jocassee is a 7,565 acre man-made lake in the South Carolina mountains. Formed by the Whitewater, Thompson, and Toxaway Rivers, it is known for its mostly undeveloped shoreline, views of the Jocassee Gorges Wildlife Management Area and surrounding mountains, and waterfalls that cascade directly into the lake. A variety of fish may be found in the clear, cold water including brown and rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, and sunfish. The lake is operated by Duke Power Company. Public access is through Devils Fork State Park.
