We camped at Devil's Fork the weekend of October 15th, 2021, and we had never been before. Actually, my wife and kids had never been camping before so it was a bit of an adventure for our family, but after coming here, I can say it's a great location for a first time camping trip. The weather was pratically perfect for us with highs in the low 70's and low's around 50. We rented tent site T-18, and the only downside to it was that it is a bit of a walk in to the site, with lots of stairs, so dragging our wagon/cart was a bit of an issue. We ended up taking a little trail through the parking lot to the site to avoid the stairs. The site itself was awesome. Great area near the water, and near a really gorgeous beach. The kids had a blast wading in the water, fishing and exploring the area. The sites don't have power, so I would recommending bringing a portable battery to charge phones, and bring battery powered lights. Also, it is a bit of a walk uphill to the bathroom area, just FYI. The bathrooms were decent. There were 2 showers with hot water in the men's room, just make sure to bring some flip flops with you. There is one power outlet at the bathroom should you need a quick chance to charge a device. My only complaint were that there were a lot of families who brought their dogs with them, in fact there was one family with 4 dogs, and while I don't have an issue with people camping with their dogs, a lot of the dogs there would bark in the middle of the night, and I would just kindly suggest to people that if your dog is the kind that is skeptical of strangers and can be a barker at night, just to be mindful of the other people camping. It can be difficult to sleep in a tent, outside, etc...already, but with dogs barking and the occasional car alarm going off, it's all the harder. Overall, the park is beautiful and well maintained. The Oconee Bell trail was a really fun and easy short hike that our kids loved exploring, and in the cool of the fall, was perfect. We rented a pontoon boat for a 1/2 day and enjoyed exploring the lake. In general, we'll definitely be back, and grateful we got to spend a few days unplugging from the everyday.

Stayed in Villa #3- they have been updated since my last visit a few years ago; "granite" counter tops, fireplace updates, new furniture, new laminate flooring, new tub unit. Satellite TV and WiFi are nice additions too! Kitchen is well equipped with basic needs. Lower number cabins are up the hill and the farthest away from the well pump so for increased water pressure, pick a higher number unit. And definitely get the lake view if at all possible! Everything was very clean and pretty well maintained.

Beautiful cabin! There are plenty of near by hikes for waterfall views, if you're interested. Staff when we arrived were nice. Exiting the lady seems a little cranky... maybe it was too early. The only thing wrong in the cabin was, a couple of lights were out and there was a huge spider web in the beams above the couch. The rest of the house was spotless! We loved our stay and will return. Thanks so much Devil's Fork!

Awesome trip! Stayed in cabin 13. No fire ring if you are looking for that, but porch facing the lake is totally unobstructed. Very nice cabins with all the amenities. Has Wi-Fi, satellite television, stone fireplace....

We rented a three bedroom villa for a long weekend stay with our children and had a great time. The unit is rustic but clean and generally well maintained. The area is quiet and relaxing and we had a great view of the lake. We will definitely return! As information on the State Park website is limited about what to expect, here are a few things I wish I had known. 1) Three Bedroom Villas all appear to be two stories. If you have a young child, bring a baby gate to block the stairs as they are steep. 2) While there is a coffee pot in the unit and they provide you with two initial k-cups, if you like regular brewed coffee, bring your own basket filters, especially if arriving late in the day. The ranger station does sell them (50/$2) but they were closed by the time we arrived and so we had none for coffee the next morning. It would be nice if they provided one initial filter for that first morning. 3) Cooking supplies are limited. If you plan to cook I would recommend bringing measuring spoons and cups and other utensils you might need. The unit does have some but the quality and type are hit or miss. 4) Don't run a shower and any other hot water at the same time. Hot water runs out VERY quickly so plan your showers accordingly. 5) The mattresses are VERY firm.

There is very little parking at this park. My husband got there early to drop our boat in the lake. Me and the family came about noon and the lot was full. Park ranger was very rude and told me to turn around. Would not even let me park a half mile away and walk! My family pays way too much in state taxes to be told to turn around. The lake is beautiful but the state park is typical of any government run facility. They do not care!!

A group of us stayed in several "villas," 2- or 3-bedroom cabins that were very clean, spacious, modern, and delightful. Though the park was booked all weekend, we never felt that it was overcrowded. There are multiple boat launches, beaches, and placed to watch water and birds. The water was clear and clean. The walking trails were well-maintained, and the park service staff was helpful. Would absolutely consider returning!

This park offers many activities for families to experience nature at it's finest. The cascading Blue Ridge mountains meet the sparkling clear waters of lake Jocassee at Devils Fork State Park. Camping, hiking, boating, fishing, swimming, playgrounds, geocaching, and numerous waterfalls along the shoreline are some highlights of the activities you can enjoy at this park. Rental kayaks and boats are available so you can explore this beautiful lake and the gorgeous waterfalls that feed into it. The park is busy in the summer, so either reserve in advance, or take advantage of the less crowded seasons of fall through spring. There are cabins which are more like condominiums for those not prepared to camp. Stores are nearby for supplies of all sorts. The views remind one of a more tropical setting as the mountains meet the water. Being the only public access to the lake, there are substantial boat ramps for launching your own boat. This park is truly a SC gem to be discovered...

Jocassee is a wonderful, undeveloped lake that one can find a peaceful relaxing atmosphere. We have camped in the campground and wanted to try to villas. We found our villa extremely clean with all the basic needs supplied from a start on soap, TP, to plenty of towels, and items needed for cooking. We have already booked a couple of other dates to take family with us to enjoy this park. The staff in the main park office are quite friendly. One can rent kayaks, canoes, paddle boards and opt to take a pontoon ride with a local company. There are two hiking trails in the park. Other waterfalls in the upstate can be enjoyed.

Very nice state park. The campsites were nice, clean, spacious and close to the lake! No Sewer hookups but they do have water and electricity. The bath house was close by, which was convenient. Very quite and shady! Nice paved trails that lead to the lake. We rented kayaks and went out on Lake Joceesee....omg the water is crystal clear. Very very pretty. Mountains on one side of the lake and beach areas on the other side. Parts of the lake reminded me of the Caribbean....it's simply that beautiful. We didn't see the waterfalls as it was to far to travel by kayak but they do have boat tours and bost rentals near by. Definitely will be going back for a longer weekend soon!
