it's supposed to be a great weekend, warm during the day and no where below 40 in the mtns.

i'm thinking about loading up the top of the cruiser and a trailer with kayaks and heading out to jocasse to do some camping and a lot of fishing.

anyone have any suggestions on where to do some primitive camping?

Most of the lake is all on protected gov't land and you can't camp on the shores like you can in hartwell, other than the horse pasture i don't know much about it.

Any other familiys interested in coming along, would love to get together with some other folks that know the lake well and can show us some pointers on fishing/waterfalls.

a weekend at the tent sites at devils fork are 18-22 bucks for fri and sat night.

Jocasse is definately a good place to go canoeing. Just gotta find out where the waterfalls are.

even without the waterfalls the clear/clean water make a great to just go and swim (when it's warm).

some of the campsites are boat access only. We will have children and dogs as well as a trailer to fit atleast 3 boats so we will probably stay on the mainland.

The last time i went up to the horsepasture you could see kayakers from the look out point.

Hopefully the lake will be empty, it's still early in the season for boaters/jet skis

Well I named one of my daughters after that lake. I've been boating and camping there for over 20 years. There are two big falls. Whitewater falls and Laurel Fork Falls. Both are cool. Both are a haul in a canoe. There are two primitive sites on the lake. One is across from Devils Fork. You reserve those at the boat landing or online. I wouldn't wait to get them the day of. The other one is up Toxiway River on the right. There is a beach area that you can put a canoe on and you have to hike in to the sites. First come first serve I believe. Sites are about 100 yards of the water. I've never camped there though.

Below is a map of the falls.
