Lake Jocassee In South Carolina

Lake Jocassee, South Carolina

Boating, camping and fishing.

A scenic boating destination and one of the few trout lakes in SC, Lake Jocassee offers fishing for both cold-water and warm-water fish species. There are three public boat launch ramps for launching your pontoon, pleasure or fishing boat. Kayaks, canoes, pontoons and ski boats are available for rent at nearby Jocassee Outdoor Center, an off-the-water marina, which serves Lake Jocassee and Lake Keowee. Lodging and campgrounds with RV spaces are available at the lake. Trout, hybrid stripers, bass, crappie, catfish, pickerel, sunfish and white bass all thrive in this 7,500-acre reservoir. This scenic lake is located on the northwest border of the state with NC, at Jocassee, SC. Fishing from a boat is the ideal way to fish the 75 miles of rocky shoreline.
