Devils Fork is a beautiful state park. We visited there last month- it was our first time. Lake Jocassee is gorgeous! We brought our kayak & spent some time in the water. It was a bit chilly, but felt awesome when you had been paddling in the sun. There are tons of places to "park" your boat & tie up (bring rope!) to go for a swim or eat a snack. There were a lot of other kayaks & canoes... a few motorized boats as well. With the wake & wind, it was more strenuous than expected, but still enjoyable. I guess it depends on how far out you want to go... the lake is huge. We didn't get a chance to fish, but heard the fishing is great. We will definitely have to make time for that next trip! We hiked the Oconee Bell Nature Trail. It was pretty. Very easy- would be great for families with small children. The camping sites are a decent size (larger than Table Rock State Park) with a good amount of room in between. Park staff are all very friendly & informative as far as where to go for which activities, etc. Only complaint is that the restrooms could have been a little cleaner! The restrooms for our camping area had two toilets clogged for a day & a half which was a huge inconvenience considering the number of people camping that weekend. All in all though, very pretty state park. We will be back!

We are tent campers. This is a state park. If you have a boat you can visit many waterfalls that dump into lake...one large one Laurel Falls. We climbed cliffs and jumped into the water in a couple places (we checked depth before). 7500 acres protected land on lake...really quiet -not a lot of boats. Campground sites are weird..ours had water faucet that dripped over the drive. Small tent pads that you have to use. Older bathroom facilities, but mostly clean. Rangers are on top of you....making sure tires are on drive and checking for alcohol. Quiet at night. good place for families. We love it.
