The Underrated South Carolina Lake That’s Perfect For A Summer Day
The State of South Carolina is home to countless places that people flock to when it gets hot outside. The beaches are a natural choice, as are other swimming holes you’ll find inland in the Palmetto State. Additionally, our state boasts several huge lakes, including this one: Lake Jocassee.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
This upstate collaboration between man and Mother Nature is the perfect spot to spend a hot summer day in South Carolina. Have you been to Lake Jocassee? We’d love to hear about your experiences and see your photos in our comments!
Lake Jocassee has public access available through Devil’s Fork State Park. The park opens at 7:00 a.m.daily. There is a fee for park entrance and it’s recommended that you get there early in the day to secure entry. Once it reaches capacity, the park rangers will be kind enough to direct you to another nearby park.
