  • We went here for the first time with a small tent and couldn't have had more fun. The water is beautiful and clear, there are beach areas, playgrounds and bathrooms close by wherever you are. Everyone...  more »
  • First the road to the park is very curvy and s few sharp turns and a little narrow with no hard railing be careful. Now the park. The rangers were excellent very polite and kind. Nice little gift shop...  more »
  • We frequently go to the park to SCUBA dive. The facilities are great and we have had absolutely no trouble.  more »
  • A beautiful landing and park area. There is ample parking for visitors and campers alike. The only problem is how busy the boat ramp gets. On Saturday mornings, trucks are often backed up across the road and around the secondary parking lot. Be sure to arrive early to avoid peak times.
  • Boat ramps are worthless!!!!!! No docks to tie your boat up after you launch it. No where to tie anything...just rocks on both sides of the ramps. Once your boat is floating you have to step out on the slippery concrete and pull the hull of your boat up on the concrete so HOPEFULLY it stays there while you go park your vehicle. Worst when waves are coming in causing bottom of boat hull to keep scraping on the concrete. Every ramp should have a floating dock attached so one can launch and then tie the boat up. And they have the nerve to collect fees for entry. I will never go back to that stupid place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Such beautiful clear waters. I have loved Jocassee since I was a small child and now my children love her too! We go as often as we can, it gets packed during the summer especially the weekends. The staff are always helpful in any situation and the are always friendly. The bathrooms are... not as clean as one would hope but they are never nasty. A baby changing station in the bathroom would be nice for babies/toddlers and showers to rinse off. (Like the ones with the push nob that only last a couple minutes) other than that devils fork state park is perfect!
  • Absolutely gorgeous lake and scenery. No complaints on staff or campsites. I was tent camping, and the pads are sand boxes, FYI.
  • The lake is gorgeous but I will not be returning to devils fork state park. The camping spots are right on top of each other and the bath/restrooms are subpar when it comes to cleanliness. Next issue I had was after paying to camp for 2 nights and renting a boat for the day. When I pulled in to park, the woman at the drive up window told me to park in the lot right beyond her window for the day while we were out on the lake. Only to return to a $100 ticket waiting on my windshield. If their own staff is not trained to give correct information on procedures, they shouldn't be able to stick someone with a ticket from their own shortcomings in training. In the future I will not be returning. There's to many other places with less BS to deal with.
