The Saluda River is in the park and there are kayaks to rent or bring your own. There's also a dog park,... More

This is an absolutely wonderful park! All kinds of different activities, well maintained, clean clean clean. Great river access. We rented a canoe for few hours and took advantage of their shuttle service after a paddle on the Saluda River. Geocaching is also super fun out here with the kids!

Our extended family is just too large for anyone to host a gathering at home any more. A few years ago, we starting reserving one of the shelters at Saluda Shoals and meeting there. Everyone brings a dish; there are electrical outlets so we can keep food warm. The park is lovely, and it has something to offer for all... More

As a park, this is a great place to go with the family. the SPLASH park was a lot of fun and was not as crowded as I expected. From there we took a walk around a... More

It was a great Saturday afternoon till we decided to take our 5 yo daughter to Saluda Shoals Splash Pad which also located in the park. Restroom by the Splash Pad was nasty, no air conditioner. I was scared to change my child in that dirty place. Splash Pad was overloaded with children of all age and they all run... More
