The water park is a nice place for smaller kids. They provide a lifeguard. The only problem is that it is so nice it gets packed quickly and that is dangerous for the smaller kids. Lots of kids running also causes danger, especially for the smaller ones. Get there when they open and you will get the best hour of... More

Our family has been here for weddings, birthday parties, baby showers and Church School celebrations. The facilities rental fees are reasonable and the park is well maintained. It has accommodations large for family events and also offers facilities with more cozy atmospheres. The gazebo was wonderfully perfect for the outside wedding we attended... There is something for everyone to do... More

Be sure to visit this park-the $5 entry fee is well worth it. The environmental center has some very nice exhibits for adults and children! Trails are easy access but the trail map is very confusing.

Did a 4 mile trail by myself and enjoyed it. The trail was very easy to walk and probably good for bikes and strollers. Mostly shaded

So I'm a mom of two, and we really love Saluda Shoals, specifically for the scenic views as well as the splash pad is one of the best in all of the Midlands. My son has issues with showers (I know, I know, strange toddler problems), but he loves this place, after a few minutes. My husbands company has a... More

Great place to hike . With the weather so hot it is nice to stroll under a canopy of beautiful trees near a cool river .

There isn't tons of stuff to do in this park, a small splashpad, some playground equipment, but what this park does have is a great place to walk, run or ride a bike in shade and in summer in SC, you need shade. There are always plenty of people around so you feel safe and the sections of the walking... More
