Located on Lake Jocassee, a beautiful unique wonderland for you to explore!

Lake Jocassee is a magnificent jewel nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains between Western North and South Carolina. Surrounded by the Jocassee Gorges and fed by 4 wild and scenic rivers and many small tributaries, it is no wonder the lake and area were recognized in National Geographic magazine’s “50 of the World’s Last Great Places” Destinations of a Lifetime. The lake was built in 1973 by Duke-Energy as a hydroelectric reservoir. The dam is 385 feet high and 1,750 feet long. Lake Jocassee has 7,500 acres of water and 75 miles of shoreline. Full pond elevation of Lake Jocassee is 1,110 feet. The Whitewater River, Thomson River, Horse Pasture and Toxaway Rivers all flow into Jocassee. The topography around the lake is steep undulating terrain from which the many waterfalls spill. Three of the largest waterfalls on the lake are Wright’s Creek Falls, Mill Creek Falls and Laurel Fork Falls. Mostly undeveloped, it truly is a unique wonderland to explore.

Coming up, we have two very interesting events happening. Saturday October 13th, 2018 Friends of Jocassee are putting on the First Annual Lake Jocassee Paddle Splash Competition. The race start and finish is the Eclectic Sun @ Lake Jocassee launch in the picnic area of Devils Fork State Park 238 Buckeye Drive, Salem SC 29676. You can sign up for this race at Beginners and advanced paddlers are welcome, and are grouped by age and the speed of the craft to keep the racing fair. Choose between long (six mile) and short (three mile) loop courses. Kayak and SUP rentals are available on site at the Eclectic Sun Paddlesports concession, or bring your favorite ride.
Our next event we are planning to coincide with the Paddle Splash will be Eclectic Sun’s Annual Used Boat & Equipment Sale. Starting October 12th and continuing until we have depleted the boats & equipment we have for sale this year. A list of boats and equipment will be posted here when available.
A big shout out to all our faithful fun loving outsiders who love Lake Jocassee as much as we do. You are what makes Eclectic Sun Paddlesports what it is. We appreciate you all so much!
