Waterfalls of Western Lake Jocassee Paddle Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This lake paddle is set against a backdrop of mountains rising over 2,000 feet above what is arguably South Carolina’s most scenic lake. Here, you will leave Devils Fork State Park, with the lake’s only public boat ramps, and head northwest under a mantle of Southern Appalachian splendor.

Make your way into the Thompson River arm of the lake, where Thompson River flows into Lake Jocassee. Discover a whitewater cascade on the main river and a steep unnamed waterfall of a tributary. Next, make your way back toward Devils Fork State Park, stopping by impressive Wrights Creek Falls, with its three-tiered cataract behind, which you can paddle."
