Lake Jocassee

Richmond native and filmmaker Hunter Davis has moved back to Richmond from Asheville (who’s trendy now?!) and area paddlers and paddle porn lovers are the better for it. His latest film premieres tomorrow night at 7 p.m. at The Camel. It’s just $5 to get in and, based on this trailer, it’s worth every penny. The movie is called “Escarpment: The Jocassee Experience.” Lake Jocassee is found in the northwest corner of South Carolina where a number of creeks drain the Blue Ridge Mountains. According to Davis, those creeks offer “the biggest and baddest whitewater to be found on the East Coast.”

The Thompson River, one of a few creeks that feed the Jocassee.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
