The summer heat is here to stay. While this makes us happy, we’re always looking for ways to cool off. What better way to beat the summer heat than a trip to the lake?

We’ve compiled your go-to guide for all things Lake Jocassee to make your day trip or weekend vacay one for the books.

Pack Your Lake Day Essentials

To help you last all day in the summer sun, it’s important to be prepared. Here are a few things we think should be on your list:

Lake Jocassee Cabins

If a day trip isn’t your style, you might want to stay for the weekend to get the most out of all Lake Jocassee has to offer. Some of the prettiest scenery can be found on the north-side of the lake with the most iconic views at Jumping Off Rock and there are several options for cabin rentals. Check out this advice from TripAdvisor.

Local Restaurants

Lake lunches are usually enjoyed picnic-style on a boat or dock, but finding local places to grab a bite can be fun too! We’ve heard Keowee TowneSister’s, and Pat’s Cash and Carry are some great spots not too far away that the locals love.

Rent Smart

When renting boats at Lake Jocassee, the more the merrier! Not only are lake days more fun with all your favorite buds, but you’ll also get the best bang for your buck. Pontoon boats hold up to 10 people and renting a pontoon for the day from Eclectic Sun LLC. near Lake Jocassee’s non-motorized boat ramp runs $300 for four hours. If you do the math, that means $30 per person which leaves a lot of funds leftover for snacks and drinks!
