Mild weather weekend. Campground road curvy and a little narrow. Most sites are not level so extra chocks are needed and pad is short so big rigs will not fit. Few tt mostly tents or pop ups. Campground not for casual biking since it is hilly. Also it is about 6 miles from Greenville so not much to do around campground. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a Old Campground, could use some Facility, Landscaping upgrades, Restrooms were clean. Need to be very careful on entrance roads in the park as they are very narrow. We stayed in Site #32 which backs up to the Woods so a good bit of Privacy, but very unlevel with about a 6 % Slope which put the Trailer steps high making it tough to get in, had to go purchase a step stool, and also big drop off the Trailer Pad to the dirt which made it a trip hazard. A load of dirt/Gravel would alleviate this. Picnic tables Dirty & Rotted. Greenville is a beautiful town and will Camp here again. 30-Amp, Water all good. There was a Fire ban so couldn't do Campfire. Many Hiking Trails. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Flat Rock Grill is an excellent place to eat, very clean, upscale, moderately priced. Just a few miles from the Campground in the Cherrydale Shopping Plaza. Propane is sold by the Gallon at the new Ace Hardware Landscaper's Supply just down from the shopping center as well as Wal-Mart and BI-LO for Groceries.

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. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Downtown Greenville. Falls Park is just off Main St. and beautiful. Many great restaurants. Also the Swamp Rabbit Trail is 18 miles long and goes between Travelers Rest, SC to downtown Greenville.

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. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Great spot to tent camp (as I have in the past here) and this was my 1st RV camping stay ever. I just purchased the 40' Monaco several days before this stay and had the best 1st timer experience I think anyone could have as Ameila and Bones, the camp host are the best and have several, several yrs under their belts as I needed some good guidance for running the systems. A&B made our stay.....I don't remember the actual rate, but was around the 20 per night. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a quiet park with lots of trees. Sites are nicely spaced with more than enough room for slides and awnings. Free firewood is a nice perk. There is Wi-Fi at the park office but not at the sites. Non-motorized boats are available for rent, and there are trails of varying lengths, including a fairly flat walk around the lake. However, many, perhaps most, of the sites are well off level. We called to make our reservation, and the park employee was very gracious about helping us choose an appropriate site with a manageable grade. Rate is for South Carolina seniors. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet, well shaded park with several walking trails and mountain bike trails. The sites were not very level, so make sure you have equipment that will help you get level (blocks, etc). Most sites are small, so this would not be a very good park for the largest campers. Check the reservation website closely for length before you reserve! We had good TV coverage and cell phone coverage. WI-FI access is available near the visitor center with the code posted on the door. Hosts were pleasant. Restrooms were clean and showers worked well. This is a good place to camp if you want to visit downtown Greenville, and if you have bikes you can park next to the "Swamp Rabbit Trail" and pedal downtown and avoid the traffic. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice park but with caveats. We stayed in site 5 and the site was listed as moderately level I believe. Our 33' RV front wheels were 8" off the ground when leveled. The road through the park is maybe 1 or 1.5 miles and is narrow and winding. You will meet cars and it might be a problem as it was for us. I came in after dark and was unnerved how narrow the road was. I will not return to this park due to the road through the park. The gate has a combination lock so you can get out at night which was an unexpected. You will get the combination when you check in. The camp hosts were very nice people. Too bad the park isn't more larger big rig friendly. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in Paris Mountain State Park in the past and were really surprised at how nice a park it is. This time we stayed in a large pullthrough - site 31. It was across from a bath house and backed up to a wooded area. This particular site was not very level, but it was better than a lot of sites. It's nice that each site has a paved pad to park, but a lot of the sites have paving that is buckled. Almost every site is not level. Some sites are okay and some are really bad. The bathhouse by our campsite was clean and well maintained. Although WiFi is not available throughout the campground, there is free WiFi at the office building by Lake Placid. There was a pretty decent selection of TV stations available through the antenna; cable is not available. Although there are lots of trees, there should be ample enough opening in the tree cover for Dish/DirectTV. The rangers keep a nice supply of free firewood available. This time around it was a little damp, but it is free. It did dry quickly once a fire was going. We really enjoy everything the park has to offer. We look forward to going back sooner than later. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are very small. A few sites might be big enough for something larger than our 21 foot rig, but not many. Sites were paved and shaded. The campgrounds are beautiful and I would go back again. Bathrooms were adequate and relatively clean. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Small park with only 40 sites. Most of them are too small for RVs and the sites are generally not level. Bath houses are older but clean. The park has great hiking and a nice swimming area at the lake. Great location for Greenville, SC activities. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There was a woman who continually smoked in the bathhouse, even after I requested that she please smoke outside. The entire campground was filled with dogs. Some of the sites had more than 10 dogs per site. (There was a dog show in town.) The dogs barked constantly at all hours. Campers were allowed to set up a children's slip and slide and kiddie pool in the Colonial Cemetery. Other campers set up their sat. dishes in the cemetery. A camper turned on his headlights for his truck at 5:30 in the morning so that he could see his dog kennels. His lights were directed straight onto my tent camper for over thirty minutes ruining sleep. There needs to be more supervision at this campground and stricter pet policy. All of the dogs made the visit extremely unpleasant. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Coming from Florida where we're used to flat land, this campsite was a real eye opener. Narrow roads, tight turns with a few blind curves, you just have to be careful and drive slowly. This was especially nerve-racking because we arrived pretty late (it was dark). Disconnected our tow vehicle before we proceeded any further. We camped at site #02. We have a 39' motorhome and we couldn't get it leveled. We adjusted. They provide free firewood. The boys loved exploring the woods/hills. Very friendly rangers. Great atmosphere. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. We stayed here 4 nights. Gave it a 7 because there is no Wi-Fi and no sewer at the sites. They have a dump station at entrance though. Better for smaller campers. We camped at Paris Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.
