National Geographic named Jocassee Gorges, Home of Lake Jocassee, on the "50 of the World's Last Great Places" for a good reason: Lake Jocassee located in Oconee County, which is often described as the Golden Corner of South Carolina, is a 7,500 acre lake with only 37 homesites surrounding this backdrop of gorgeous natural beauty. At a depth of up to 400 feet, some of the worlds best fishing records are accomplished here. The lake is stocked each year in the spring with over 40,000 trout. The 32,000 acres of Jocassee Gorges surrounding Lake Jocassee is protected and preserved by conservation easements and national forest. National Geographic featured Lake Jocassee as one of top ten unspoiled places on earth. Devil's Fork State Park is the only public access to Lake Jocassee which is only two hours from major southeast cities of Atlanta, Charlotte and Columbia and only 20 minutes from the Cashiers and Highlands crossroads. Nature calls to visitors to enjoy the sheer beauty of surroundings and the abundant wildlife and rare plants in the area. Now, one fortunate family has the rare opportunity to own a home on this incredible exclusive lake. Owned by the family of the COO of Milliken for decades, this family home which sleeps over 20 people has just been listed.
