After returning from the Caribbean the day before, My girlfriend and I took advantage of a beautiful Saturday morning and afternoon borrowing Kayaks from my Mom and Step dad to go Kayaking on Lake Jocassee. Being that I am new to the whole outdoors experience in South Carolina, we also borrowed my step dads old tent to finally experience camping for the first time at Keowee-Toxaway State Park.
After we set up camp in the park, we drove a few miles west to Devil's Fork State Park where we found out we could Kayak to a few waterfalls. We headed straight for the boat drop off ramp, placed our Kayaks in the water, and set off on a search for some water falls. We not only encountered strong winds throughout most of the journey but we didn't find the waterfalls wish hoped to see. Only to later find out where we turned around, a waterfall was not far away. We then later picked up some goodies and food to complete our camping experience before we hit the sheets.

Jumping Off Rock Lake Jocassee and The Jocassee Gorges
Jumping-Off-Rock, an iconic viewpoint above Lake Jocassee within the Jocassee Gorges in northern Pickens County, can now be accessed all year round. Horsepasture Road from US 178 to the popular overlook and Camp Adger Road from US 178 to the Horse Mountain gate will be open for licensed vehicles. For safety, no ATV use will be allowed during the summer months.
S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) decided to provide year-round access to the popular site since it is one of the most recognized overlooks in the state.
The Jumping-Off Rock area is one of the prime destinations on Jocassee. It has beautiful views and supports one of South Carolina's two pairs of nesting peregrine falcons. When the Falcons assumed residency six years ago, a new overlook was created near Jumping-Off Rock to avoid disturbance of the nesting pair of falcons.
The overlook is one of the most remarkable vistas in the Upstate. The beautiful view of Lake Jocassee and the Blue Ridge Mountains is a must see. One rare feature at the vista is that few signs of human development are seen there.
National Geographic recently identified Jocassee Gorges as one the top 50 of The World's Last Great Places. Several overlooks along the 9-mile ride on the Horsepasture Road to Jumping-Off Rock allow visitors to grasp a true sense of the vast extent of undisturbed landscape. The Horsepasture Road entrance is near the community of Rocky Bottom off U.S. Highway 178, about 8 miles north of the intersection of Scenic Highway 11 and U.S. Highway 178 in northern Pickens County.

It May Look Serene, But There’s Something Creepy Hidden At the Bottom of This Carolina Lake
No light or sound penetrates the watery depths of Lake Jocassee. Its name in Cherokee means “Place of the Lost One,” and you’ll need a strong nerve to dive into it, not to mention a powerful flashlight. Still, cast a beam across its murky bed and you’ll glimpse the macabre remains of a long-lost time and place…
Fringing the Blue Ridge Escarpment in South Carolina, Lake Jocassee is surrounded by steep, forested hills cut with vertiginous gorges. The clean, clear waters of four Appalachian rivers feed the lake, which is no small body of water. Its shoreline measures 75 miles, while its area extends for 7,500 acres.
National Geographic placed the Jocassee gorges ninth on its list of “50 of the World’s Last Great Places.” However, long before it was a center of outdoor recreation, the region was populated by Native Americans. The Eastatoe, Oconee and Cherokee all called it home.
The first European to chart the region, however, was Hernando de Soto in 1539. And in 1690 he was followed by a British gold-hunter, James Moore. Indeed, by the late 1700s a European presence was well established in the gorges, and this was maintained by an extensive trade network with the Native American locals.
