    This park is amazing, lovely place. The staff at the ranger station is so king and helpful, the cabins are beautiful, clean, bigs and all the appliances are new and excellent quality. We loved this place and definitely will come back.

    We had a wonderful time! Kevin is a very good guide, and shares stories and information about Jocassee and the various waterfalls. He knows the lake and its weather like the back of his hand and kept a close eye on the weather while we were out there, and got us back to shore before the rain, which was also impressive. We had an idyllic picnic lunch we brought, on a little beach along the lake. I really recommend this company if you are visiting upcountry South Carolina.

    We had an Awesome time and highly recommend using this company for your boat rentals! So accommodating, helpful, flexible and knowledgable. We were concerned about weather and Stephanie worked with us, bent cancellation policy and allowed us to ride out the forecast which turned out to be a great day on Lake Jocassee! This was the7th time I’ve rented with them and every time was a positive experience!💯

    Lake Jocassee is a beautiful lake to kayak on and the staff at Eclectic Sun at Devils Fork made it so easy to rent a kayak and get on the water. The staff are very helpful and went above and beyond to help me find a bag I lost. They assist you in launching the kayaks and getting out when you return. The equipment provided is good quality. They do not have sit in kayaks for rent, but the sit upon kayak worked fine. I highly recommend renting from Eclectic Sun and would advise making advanced reservations because they are busy!

    Absolutely enjoyed our tour with Sam on Lake Jocassee. We had plenty of room for our party of six, and the boat was very comfortable. Sam is very friendly and helpful, and has great knowledge of the lake and the area. We had to maneuver around a little bit of rain (very common on this lake), but Sam handled it really well. Highly recommend this tour - gorgeous lake, amazing waterfalls, and a wonderful host!

    We just moved here and looking to see some sights. We booked the 4 hour pontoon ride on Lake Jocassee. All I can say it was totally awesome! The weather was hot and our guide, Ken, took us to the beach area to swim and also to three different waterfalls where swimming was available as well. It was a beautiful day and so happy that we were able to enjoy! You can bring snacks and drinks on board also. Ken was very knowledgeable about the entire area and gave us a lot of info on history, terrain, plant life, etc. best day ever!

    This place offers boat rentals, fuel, food, a place with bathrooms along the highway. It is a convenient place to stop along the highway or if looking for a boat rental or other outdoor lake activities. There are other places nearby on the lake that might be better but they offer several services in one place. We just used the c-store and bathrooms.
