Devils Fork State Park is a 622-acre park that was created in 1990 and that is situated on Lake Jocassee, which is fed by mountain springs and is surrounded by the Jocassee Gorges and several small waterfalls. Public access to the park is only possible by boat. Another significant and attractive feature of the Devils Fork State Park besides the 7,500-acre reservoir lake and its surrounding features are unique wildflower species including the rare Oconee Bellflower that is mainly found in the southern Appalachians.
On your way to the lake by boat, you can stop and fish on the lake where you can try your hand at catching trout, bluegill, smallmouth bass, and black crappie. Besides fishing and boating within the park, you can also enjoy hiking and camping at the park.
Available amenities at the park include boat-in backcountry campsites, 59 campsites with water and electric hookups, 25 walk-in tent campsites, hiking trails, two picnic shelters, gift shop, 20 villas, playground, boat ramps, and a camp store. Like all other South Carolina State Parks, you are allowed to bring your dog into the park, but you will need to abide by park rules if you want to enjoy your stay at the park. Some of the rules that you will need to abide by include the following.
First, you have to keep your dog on a leash that has a maximum length of six feet or you must keep your pooch confined in a secure holding. Secondly, you must avoid letting your dog stray into lodging areas and you must generally maintain immediate control of your dog at all times around the park. Any unnecessary noise by your dog or any harassment or threatening behavior by your dog towards wildlife within the park will not be tolerated and could result in your dog being ejected from the park. That said, you are allowed to take your dog to most outside areas of the park.
