“An old favorite of our family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Paris Mountain is a nice option if you want to visit a park but don't have the time to invest in driving up to Caesar's Head or one of the other larger parks. It is easily accessible, clean and very pleasant.

“Visit Paris and never leave home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

This is our 3rd time camping at Beautiful Paris Mountain State Park. It is a family friendly fun park with friendly rangers and moderate to strenuous trails. The park is home to a mountain biking community and they hit the trails hard....yet are still friendly and courteous. If you want a day with out bikes on the trails Saturday is your day.... No bikes allowed in park on Saturday... Either way however this a comfortable park to hike in with great destinations...three lakes, two dams, tons of history and close to Greenville incase you need to head into town. It doesn't get much better than this!

“A Great City Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Falls Park downtown gets all the rave reviews but Paris Mountain State Park gets my vote as the best of the area's parks. It is well-maintained, with a wide variety of hiking trails, a nice road for road biking (with a serious climb if you want to go for it!) and some great mountain biking trails. There are three lakes, one at the entrance, one in the middle of a hike, and one at the end of a long hiking / biking trail for those looking for a good day's workout. One of my favorite parks in the country -- but not of the spectacular nature of Yosemite, Glacier, Zion or Bryce.

It is a real treasure for those of us who just want to get out a bit right here in Greenville.

“Close to town, feels like miles away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Great park for picnics, fishing, mountain biking, hiking. Well equipped camping sites, many gazebos that can be reserved for family or business functions. Boat rental in the summer on Lake Placid. Great trails, some nice hikes along streams and lakes, too.
