Lake Jocassee: A Destination of a Lifetime
LOCATION The Mountains

Lake Jocassee is a massive 7,500-acre and 300-foot deep reservoir created by Duke Energy in 1973 (along with Lake Keowee). The bottom of the lake used to be Jocassee Valley, and there are many remnants far below the waters, visible only to scuba divers (there's even a scuba diving playground)! Many mountain streams, rivers and waterfalls flow into the undeveloped lake at the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains, making it an almost crystal green outdoor haven that photographs just cannot possibly do justice. Jocassee was named a destination of a lifetime by National Geographic, recognizing the surrounding gorges and the rare plant and animal wildlife habitats that surround her waters.
