Jocassee, Lake (S.C.)
This travel article from the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism describes Lake Jocassee. It’s hard to believe that as recently as 1970, this lake didn’t exist. The Jocassee Valley was a beautiful, quiet and lush dip in the Blue Ridge Mountains where four wild rivers flowed. Whitewater, Toxaway, Horsepasture and Keowee rivers were flooded in 1973 by Duke Power Company’s multi-million dollar Keowee-Toxaway hydroelectric dam project. The result is the deepest (more than 360 feet), most pristine lake in the state.
