Devil's Fork State Park, South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism, Recreation ArchitectureFrom the last TBT project (Ambler Elementary), go north through Pumpkintown, then take Scenic Highway 11 west just across the lake into Oconee County. Wind down and past roads with names that include the words hollow, whippoorwill, Boone, and ridge.

The destination, Devil’s Fork State Park, is a remote state park along the southern banks of Lake Jocassee. Completed in 1991, CGD provided design services for the updated vernacular cabins and shelters throughout the park. Featuring natural materials that meld into the sylvan backdrop and large screened porches that afford views of the water and surrounding hills, the secluded lakeside villas and covered shelters are still in use to this day.
