Lake Jocassee Paddle Splash 2019
October 5, 2019 @ 12:00 am EDT
OverviewThe unspoiled mountain waters of South Carolina’s premier inland paddling destination are home to the Lake Jocassee Paddle Splash, offering races for kayaks, surfskis, canoes, paddleboards, and other self-powered craft. 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. Lake Jocassee’s 8,000 scenic acres and its many waterfalls are best viewed from a paddler’s perspective, so make the race a weekend vacation by reserving a campsite or villa at the race venue: Devils Fork State Park or at one of Oconee County’s parks.
