Devil’s Fork State Park #CarolinaParks #LakeJocassee

Today we visited Devil’s Fork State Park, which is located in Oconee County, just thirty miles from my home. Devil’s Fork State Park is home to the majestic clear blue Lake Jocassee.  Our family absolutely loved this gem in the Carolinas nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is absolutely breathtaking, and well worth a visit!!
