“Not for babies!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

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 as there was no place to lay a towel on the ground.

Great mountain and lake setting so close to the heart of Greenville.this is a personal favorite of mine. Not just the park but the ride to the towers as well.

“Great place for hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

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 challenge everyone.

“Aging State Park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

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 lot of restaurants, etc. if you don't want to cook! We will go back!

“Great Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

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