Lake Jocassee covers 7500 acres of water with 75 miles of shoreline.The elevation of the lake is 1100 feet.  There is very little development along the shoreline. Lake Jocassee is great for boating, skiing and fishing.  Pontoon boat tours are offered so take a boat tour and enjoy the scenic beauty. The lake offers many opportunities for fishermen to catch trout and smallmouth bass.

Caesar's Head State Park located in Cleveland, SC.

Caesar's Head State Park is known for a massive isolated granite rock that protrudes over the valley.  The granite rock resembles the profile of Julius Caesar, therefore its name. Caesar's Head has many hiking trails.  One of the most popular trails at Caesars Head is the two-mile Raven Cliff Falls trail. This hiking trail leads to 420-foot Raven Cliff Falls, where a suspension bridge offers one of the two publicly accessible overlooks to the falls as they plunge deep into the mountain cove below. The park also has many camping grounds.  There are breathe taking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from atop of Caesar's Head .

Reviews: Yelp    TripAdvisor

Jones Gap State Park is located in a deep mountain cove.  There are plenty of trails for hiking and the park covers 11,000 acres of pristine mountain woodlands.  One portion of the park contains the Eastern Continental Divide.  Therefore rain falling on one side of the divide will eventually flow into the Atlantic Ocean and rain falling on the other side will flow into the Gulf of Mexico.
