The park is located about seven and a half miles from downtown Greenville and attracts a large crowd on weekends and holidays(we were there on Memorial Day) Fortunately, we were there early(around 10am) and found ample parking. We also grabbed one of the few picnic tables surrounding the swimming area. Later arrivals had to content themselves with blankets on the... More

Paris Mountain State Park has wonderful trails for hiking and biking with friends or family. The value is incredible since it's only a few dollars for a full day of fun. The northern lake is great to hike to for a half-day hike.

This a favorite place of mine. I go here to clear my thoughts and soak up some nature. There's a giant rock that sits beside a stream that I like to sit on and just think. Mother Nature at her finest.

This was a very nice park with an easy hike around the lake. We enjoyed the waterfall coming over the dam and reading about the history of the CCC. It was a bit aggravating that they only had recyclables garbage containers and you had to drop your paper garbage upon exit at the dumpster. The camp ground looks very nice.

looked the beautiful views and structures.Main house with rockers over looking the water that is so relaxing. CON;if you are rving the roads are very narrow and 2 cars dont fit so go with a tent,pop up or small rv.We had a 36 ft fifthwheel with 4 slides so it was quite tricky.

Visited for a large gathering and the park has so much potential!! Unfortunately, all of the buildings are in need of a facelift!! Paint pealing, bathrooms are disgusting :-(

A great place for a day trip from downtown - only around 15mins. Fantastic hike to Sulphur Springs, and some great camp sites and recreational areas that you can book. We were there in Winter and it was still great, but I'm sure summer would be much better - there's a nice lake with boats available for hire.

We have hiked all the many trails which range from the strenuous Sulphur Springs to the more sedate lap around the lake. Inbetween are the trails from the hilltop parking area and trail heads such as the Brissy ridge trail. The area is perfect for a 2-3 hour hike with varied terrain and trails which I have never seen crowded,... More

We have hiked and camped here many times. The campground is small enough that it never feels crowded and has very good amenities. The hiking trails are varied for many skill levels. The lake has a swimming area, canoe, paddleboat, and kayak rentals. Many people enjoy mountain biking on the trails. This is a great park located so close to... More

Great hiking. Just minutes from the city. Variety of difficulty for all ages. Bikers amaze me they can ride up and down the trails.
