Our charity open water swim takes place at the beautiful Lake Jocassee in Northern South Carolina. Swimmers have an option to swim a 1.2 or 2.4 mile open water swim. Proceeds go the support scholarships for at-risk youth in our communities and education on water safety awareness.
Lake Jocassee is a 7,500-acre, 300-foot deep reservoir located in northwest South Carolina created by the state in partnership with Duke Power in 1973. The lake is commonly known for the clean and cold Appalachian mountain rivers that feed the lake to keep its waters cool and clear year-round. The Jocassee Dam, which forms the lake, is 385 feet high and 1,750 feet long. The lake is home to Devils Fork State Park.
