Hate to give anyone a poor review, but we have to agree with the previous reviews of this park.
Although it's fairly close to I-85, coming in from the north of Greenville on US 25 it was a long, long way through downtown traffic at rush hour, to Springwood RV Park which sits on the south side of town.
The park is in a commercial area with an airport on one side, an 18-wheel freight terminal on the second side, a run-down mobile park on the third side, and a railroad track on the fourth side - immediately alongside the park; the train at midnight almost blasted us out of bed.
The park is at least 90% full-timers, a lot of whom are still working-age, and has a mix of really dilapidated RV's alongside some really nice ones. Sites were almost totally back-in's with very narrow streets and residents' cars parallel parked on both sides, making it a challenge to back in.
Utilities worked well, but cleanliness left something to be desired. We had to pick up bit of trash and some old rusty camping gear (screw anchors) before we could back in. Cigarette butts were plentiful in the grass.
A bit noisy early in the evening, it quieted down totally by the 10 PM quite time (except for the train) and the residents were all very nice to us.
The only amenity is a small office with a very nice older gentleman who showed us a couple of sites when we checked in.
It seems to be run as an RV extension of the the mobile park, where the residents are totally responsible for the maintenance of their lots and it needs better cleanliness in general.
It's like spending the night in an old mobile home park right next to the tracks.
If we really had to stay in Greenville (there aren't many choices), we could stay here again, but we'd probably keep on going if we had a choice. - Airscreamers

There is a reason there is no picture on their website. The park is extremely run down with a lot of very old mobile homes and RVs of permanent residents. The park is also in a run-down area of town. No amenities. The only plus I can give is that the manager was a very nice man. Would not stay here again. - justkreuzin

A most disappointing park. Almost entirely permanent residents. RVs were in a section of an antiquated mobile home park. Pull-thrus, one of which we had, required driving across a field to access a site on the other side. The site itself was gravel, mostly level and somewhat narrow. No services, store, restroom facility (which we wouldn't use anyway), playground, dedicated dog walk, etc., etc. I suppose that "run down" would fit this park very well. - Motorhome Traveler

Park needs extensive maintenance and sites leveled, all are pretty unlevel and only a couple will accommodate big rigs. Could be a fairly nice park with a lot of work and clean up. Only stayed here to visit with family and friends close by. - western traveler

This is a terrible campground, but unfortunately, the only one near Simpsonville where we were visiting our son and his family. The whole place needs major work and it is definitely way, way overpriced. We sure wouldn't stay here if anything else were available nearby. - bobbyg

Kind of unique with peacocks, geese and other birds wandering around. The roads are a little rough but passable. Good place for access to south side of Greenville. - NavyBob

Rough place for the most part. Very accommodating though. Nearly all shaded and woodsy. No grass, all dirt and crushed stone. Several units that haven't moved in years and shouldn't have been inhabited but were. Almost no grass for dogs. Would not go back. - johns3

Convenient park for visiting Taylors or the surrounding area. We were here for a five day church conference in Taylors. Many permanent or semi-permanent RV's, but they have some short term spots available. There are no toilets or showers, but full hookups with 30 or 50 amp are available. It worked for us, and we would stay here again if in the area. - bill1443

We stayed here for 2 nights while attending the Greenville AKC dog show. Mostly permanent and long-term residents, but the "overnight" sights have plenty of room and the roads are wide. The residents were very friendly and the owner (even though I never actually SAW her) was accessible by cell phone and very accommodating and helpful. Very quiet park with lots of trees. Great location close to downtown and Carolina First Center. No Wi-Fi or cable for overnight guests (I think they have cable for long-term). - melissab7

We have stayed at Paris Mountain State Park half a dozen times in the past few years. We love it. We camp in a 32' Motorhome. There are a good # of sites that will accommodate a 32' Motorhome. There are a lot of sites that are not level, but that's what levelers are for.
It is an older park, but it has been well maintained. The bath houses are always clean. This is the first time we've been there when the Campground Host actually did something. He was visible our entire trip. He was friendly.
I do not agree with previous reviewers that this park is not for Motorhomes. Anything over 40 feet long will be a problem. There are several sites that will accommodate a 40 foot long Motorhome. The drive through the park to the campground is a typical mountain park with switchbacks and relatively narrow roads. Two RVs would probably have a problem passing each other at certain points, so just use caution.
The campground's posted rate is $19/night. There is a reservation fee if you reserve through Reserve America. We always donate a few dollars when we make our reservation and always drop a few dollars into the iron ranger outside the free firewood.
Did I mention they offer free firewood? It is usually wet, but it is seasoned. This is the only campground I've ever been to that offers free firewood. Most charge a hefty sum for a few small pieces of wood.
We stay here at least once a year. Wish we lived closer to enjoy it more often. - mgirardo

This is an older park and many sites are not level. Sites 34, 36 & 38 were good and level and will accommodate a larger rig. There are many low limbs getting into the park. Nothing big so no damage. Just irritating. The location is great for visiting downtown Greenville. What a wonderful town! - User3010

This park is not for motor homes. Sites are small, quite uneven, and several sites are on an angle; some 20-30 degrees! And the most important thing is the road up to the campground is very dangerous for motor homes! It's a one lane curvy, mountain road and many of the locals or employees of the park drive very fast on this road, never thinking about what they might encounter on a turn. There are no garbage bends in the campground, many picnic tables are on unlevel ground which means they are useless. There was no flat ground to unhitch our towed vehicle. One site across from us was so uneven due to tree roots that you could not park a car on it. I just didn't see any maintenance in the camp area but someone felt it important enough to put concrete bumpers in a parking lot across from the office. Tenters and small campers might like this but I would not return in anything. - User1828

The campground is mostly full timers, however they have an area for the overnighters that is away from the lengthy stays. The area is dirt and some are hard to get level on. I stayed in 309 and back wheels were off the ground after parking on two 2x12s. Easy to get in and out of and would stay again if traveling through Greenville. - bkboren

Very convenient to Greenville area. Open, rural setting with about 10 sites for short stays. Roads and sites are dirt/gravel and sites not too level. There are no showers or bathrooms.
Management very pleasant and helpful. The wi-fi was best of any park I've ever stayed in.
I would stay here again for short over nights when visiting this area. - atwig

This is a small family run campground that is located a few miles from Greenville SC. Our pull through site was level with FHU's. The campground has a short hiking trail along a creek and a large open area for dogs. Most of the sites are taken up with long term residents. Campground is kept clean. Roads are gravel and will get dusty if it doesn't rain for a while. Campground is close to Greenville. There is shopping in Powdersville which is a few miles north of the campground. The Wifi in the park was slow but did work most of the time. - Co-Mike

For longer stays, such as retirees for a season or longer. Gravel roads, sloped sites; trees, shrubs & grass make it much more pleasant. Sites are close, but it is no parking lot. Fully self-contained units only. Many have added decks or patios.
Only special feature is the Flower Mill, which we didn't get to see. - Carolina Girl

The previous reviewers that classify this park as a bait and switch park are correct. This CG is in the current PA catalog and on the PA website. They are not on the "discontinued campground" list. Our rate was $44. a night, which is too much for this area. Oh, they do call this place a "resort". It does appear as if a lot of work was put into this CG. The small office is very nice and has a deck outback. The laundry room is small (2 each washer and dryer) and clean. Restrooms are also clean. Free wifi was satisfactory, the free cable was not. The picture was very fuzzy. There was a cable repair man out but the clear picture remained clear for only a short period. Another unpleasant occurrence was a sanitation pump truck working a few feet away from us for over an hour. Both noisy and smelly. Even though we will pass through here twice a year, we won't stay again. - hunkahunka

We chose this campground based on the most recent review thinking corrections had been made with new management. When we called we were told that they took Passport America. Got here and was given site #5 which is five sites from a busy highway. Told on the phone we would have site #26 (which was a big back in site away from the noise that stayed empty during our visit). The site was the most difficult in five years of RVing and I had to jack knife to get in. The "stream" in the back of the sites are a trickle of water so "waterfront sites" is a misnomer. The bathrooms in the office are outdated and has mold issues. There is no clear on site manager or person with legitimate power to make decisions. When we asked for a receipt, there was a discount but the office person said they do not take Passport America and we were charged for "free Wi-Fi." The Passport America logo is up on their door. Sounds like bait and switch. There are 13 sites with permanent residents which lend a different atmosphere than the "resort" they claim to be. Some of the permanent RVs looked old and deserted but were being occupied. The game room and new laundry are in utility sheds up a hill. The game room shed has some video games and that is it. I would not return which is unfortunate because the grounds are well kept and with reconfiguration of sites and on-site management this could be a "resort." But not under the current circumstances. - TailsAwagging

A great park. We have stayed here twice, once in June 2010 and we came back in Dec. The summer visit was great and we had a wonderful time so decided to return in Dec. We got everything we had hoped for, even a white Christmas. We love this park and now they have a pool and game room, and laundry room, with two new showers and pool rec area opening this summer: it just keeps getting better. I can say: this is the nicest park, the best place to come for a family, to hike, rest and relax. They have a lot to offer and the price is very reasonable. A very clean, neat park and you can tell the management really cares about how the park looks and wants everyone to enjoy their stay. - jhouse

This is. Great RV park. We stay here 3 to 4 times a year (our son works in Greenville). This couple are incredible hosts focusing on each camper's needs. Sites are level and gravel covered, with picnic tables. The host personally assists each camper in getting into their site. - Jacksonturnbull

This KOA is small, but in a great location for visiting Greenville, and biking the Swamp Rabbit trail from Travelers Rest to Greenville. The family owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make the camping experience here pleasant. Bathrooms, laundry and grounds are very clean. Garbage pick up is at your site daily. We stayed 5 nights in a pull thru at the back of the park and it was spacious. The sites are a comfortable distance apart and all come with a patio and picnic table. We've always thought that the KOA pricing was high, but they are geared to families and activities for the kids and that's baked into the price. So for all those who complain about the pricing, perhaps they would be better served to seek out resorts with concrete pads and lake views. After all, this IS a family campground. We will definitely use this park again for our next visit to Greenville. - Dunwrkn

Lovely, treed park, situated beside a flowing stream. Level site. Very accommodating, helpful office/park staff. Observed the owner dealing very effectively and diplomatically with some unruly children. - Sadiesmom

This is a clean park for adults. There are occasional distant barking dogs, but otherwise it's very quiet. Sites are gravel and dirt, near level, wide, not especially long, with no shade. Water faucets are somewhat below ground, making connection awkward. Some sites have unthreaded sewer connections. Voltage is good. Roads in the park are gravel, adequately wide, in good condition, with a few small potholes. The road into the park is asphalt, in very good condition, but essentially one lane; there's not room for two larger RVs to get past each other. The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is strong; typical speed is 60 kB/s, but can be much slower. Verizon LTE works well. Laundry: 1 top-loader ($1.50), 1 dryer ($1.50 for 45 min.). There is one shower. Rate is the daily rate; there are also very reasonable weekly and monthly rates. Cash only. - wjzcbn

Lovely park with two lakes, fishing and surrounded by trees. Very quiet and private. Gated security. The owner is very nice and honest. I accidentally gave her $20 too much and she came back to return it. The only negative is some of the sites are not very level. We couldn't set up in the first one because of this. If we are ever in this area again we definitely would stay here. - DennisD

A clean and quiet facility. Campground appears to be a work in progress: still developing. Road directions were a bit nebulous, but eventually found the place. All in all, not bad. - MaryAnnFrederick

Older park with lots of permanent residents. But the campground is slowly improving. The electrical boxes are new and the electrical power is strong. Wifi signals are great, and there is lots of open area to get a satellite signal. We stay here a couple of times a year for a week or two at a time, and we have seen the improvements over the last several years. It's the closest park to Spartanburg and is easy access from I-26/I-85 interchange. - Pooh 2

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Ok for overnight. Roads were rough and park full of full time people with run down RV 's. - dfw

Many permanent sites not well maintained at all with junk on sites and campers in terrible shape, park in desperate need of maintenance, 50 amp sites not level, low limbs, Good Sam rating very misleading. Easy access from interstate. Great wifi service. Park has grat potential but needs a lot of work. - Mustcamp
