Not Many Know About The Mostly Intact Lodge Hiding At The Bottom Of This South Carolina Lake

When South Carolina and Duke Power formed a partnership to create hydroelectric power nearly 50 years ago, the end result was unquestionably the most beautiful, most pristine body of water in the state: Lake Jocassee. But there were tradeoffs that affected thousands who lived in the Jocassee Valley – namely, folks were forced to leave.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

If you are a certified diver and would like to take a tour down to the cold and dark waters where the Attakulla Lodge sits at the bottom of the lake, The Reel Scuba diving company in that past has scheduled dives to the Attakulla Lodge. It also offers diving lessons so you can get your certification and then join one of the expeditions. Learn more about The Reel Scuba and a dive it took in August 2021 to Attakulla Lodge, here.
