I went to Paris Mountain State Park as part of my sojourn of seeing all South Carolina Sate parks. When I arrived, I found the office nearly inaccessible to the handicapped, especially those driving RVs. The parking lot is a small gravel area down a steep drive. Since I was driving a RV I could see that here was no... More

My daughter and I went to Paris Mountain State Park for the day. We packed a cooler and a blanket along with our nature journals and a frisbee. We rented a kayak which was very nice on the small lake...very relaxing. We walked the mile long trail around the lake and saw lots of unique and interesting things. Beavers live... More

I like to go to Paris Mountain State Park because the fishing, especially, bass, is awesome. Reservoir #3 is the best one to fish at; However, this is about a 4 mile hike through the trail to get there, so if you catch any fish that you want to take back, just keep in mind of the 4 mile hike...

We went just for the swimming and although there was a nice dock for diving, there was no sand, a lot (and I mean a lot) of goose droppings and to get to the water you had to walk down a lot of steep steps which made it impossible with a stroller. Had to change the baby on a bench... More

Paris Mountain is a great place to visit. They've got a small lake with canoes and peddle boats you can use, places for picnicking, camping, and trails of varying difficulty to hike or bike on. There are a couple of easy trails around the lake area. But at the top of the mountain they have a difficult trail that should... More

Paris Mountain is an aging State Park with a lot to offer. Nice lake for swimming, kaiaking, canoeing, walking, hiking, biking, etc. The campground was clean an nicely spaced. There were a lot of dogs there and if you're not a dog person that can be uncomfortable. The staff was great and very accommodating. It is also close to a... More

We go there to hike, but there are lots of activities available - biking, swimming, camping, picnics. It's located very close to downtown Greenville.

Love this place, especially since its so close to Greenville. Found a 'hollow' rock there one of the first times I was there. To this day I show new people that I go there with ;-)
