The name “Jocassee” is derived from a Cherokee word that means “place of the lost one.” The legend goes that a young warrior from a rival tribe broke his leg while hunting in this territory claimed by the Oconee tribe that were native to the area. A young Oconee Cherokee woman named Jocassee came to the young warrior’s rescue and nursed him back to health. The two fell in love, but the warrior was killed in a battle between their tribes. Devastated, Jocassee entered the water to end her life but her body didn’t sink. She walked across the water’s surface and was met by, and forever disappeared with, the young warrior’s ghost.
To add to the lake’s allure and mystery, the Cherokee’s fair maiden wasn’t the only thing to disappear here. Before the beautiful 7,500-acre, 300-foot deep reservoir was created in 1973 by the state in partnership with Duke Power, it provided summer retreats for families. Although most manmade structures were demolished before the Lake Jocassee was flooded, divers recently discovered the remains of a lodge that was left intact that is now 300 feet below water. Also, Mount Carmel Baptist Church Cemetery from the film Deliverance is now covered by 130 feet of lake water.
