If you're planning on visiting some lakes in the great state of South Carolina this summer, you should add the following lake to your list.

One website has made a list of the most beautiful lakes in the United States. Here's what the one in South Carolina was.

It was Lake Jocassee, SC. It was ranked the 8th most beautiful lake in America.

The website says, "Lake Jocassee is situated in South Carolina's Devils Fork State Park. Thanks to the mountain streams and waterfalls that feed the 9,000-acre body of water, it's cooler than other lakes — which makes it an ideal spot for trout fishing. Those who enjoy hiking can take advantage of the lake's surrounding trails, where you can see rare Oconee bell wildflowers in the spring."

"While one TripAdvisor user praises Lake Jocassee as "one of the most beautiful lakes anywhere," another calls it "a wonder of the Carolinas," the website also says.

The Lake's State Park website says, "Plus, the unusually clear water of Lake Jocassee is a haven for scuba divers and swimmers. During the spring months, hikers on the Oconee Bell Nature Trail are treated to sightings of the endangered Oconee Bell wildflower."

Nearby the lake, there are plenty of spots for camping, hiking, boat ramps, and picnic shelters!

That's the lake in South Carolina that has been ranked as one of the most beautiful in the United States!
