The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. The owner even escorted us to our site. We stayed Christmas week and the campground was full but it never felt crowded. - Cashlin

This is a great park. It's a wooded setting that feels like a state park, and most of the sites back up against a small stream. All but 4 sites don't have neighbors in front of you so it's got a private feel. There were also trees and bushes between some of the sites to make them a bit more private.
The family that runs it is very nice, and super helpful, as were the work campers in the office.
A bit of highway noise near the front of the park, but not bad at all.
Verizon signal is a bit weak, but antennas or booster make it usable. - Robert Lee

This is a very small park. There are 37 sites, of which 2 are pull throughs and 2 premiums. There is a tent area to the rear of the property. The entrance/exit is very narrow and could be a problem if two units were coming and going at the same time. The roads and sites are gravel and some sites have a concrete patio with a table. The area is wooded but there are street lights along the interior road. The owners are very friendly and easy to talk to and ready to resolve any issues you might have. There is a small, very clean pool and a playground for the kids. There is a fenced dog park but I took away a point because they do not recycle. - Michael47

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

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. - Rolltideroll

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. - leadshot

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

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

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

Everything was great. When we arrived, we were guided into our site, which I was very thankful for. Only a month into full-time RVing, I am not the best person to guide my husband into spots. While it was a little tight to get in, we had plenty of room for trailer, vehicle, picnic table and an area for chairs and tables. Sadly, our timing was bad, as we were there when the wildfires were going crazy in North Carolina. Control fires were staged near us, and with a cold front expected, winds were due to shift. For the worse. So we put the home on the road and headed south. If we go back that way, we will definitely stay there again. - Becky N

Beautiful park. Friendly neighbors. Great owners. Very wooded, very homey feeling. Love the hiking trail with scavenger hunt! Can't say enough nice about this place. - FloridaWanderers

This is a wonderful CG for relaxation and reflection. We've been coming here for the last 3 years and we've never been disappointed. The owners live on site and truly care about your experience. CG is immaculately clean (bathroom and laundry room A+) and all sites are paved and offer enough privacy between campers. Plenty of places to walk our babies. Owner guides you into sites (back in). Uplifting Sunday morning devotion and light breakfast. They have a small playground and is VERY family friendly BUT if you're looking for a CG to entertain you with activities this one is not it. Rather it is a wonderful place to reconnect with your spouse and/or kids (or furry babies). It's an ideal location for hiking Table Rock (better eat your Wheaties!), DuPont SF (a must!!) and Pisgah NF. Brevard is only 45 minutes away (lunch at Square Root and dinner at Mario Tratorria). Happy camping! - Luv2hike

This is a somewhat unusual park, in that it is actually owned by a non-profit organization with origins back to Airstream. In recent years the campground has been opened to anyone with a self-contained RV as the campground does not have shower facilities. Sites are full hookup, complete with municipal water supply. If you're looking for a playground, pool, picnic table at each site, this is probably not the place for you. However if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful place with some of the friendliest campers you'll ever encounter anywhere, then this is a place for you. There is a small river about 200 feet off the south end of the park for a refreshing swim. Also there is a large covered area with many rockers for you to sit and enjoy the sun setting on the mountains to the west. If you have a larger RV, this is one of the very few places in the South Carolina foothills that can easily accommodate the largest RV's made. Palmetto Cove is close to many fantastic waterfalls, hiking trails and several very large South Carolina State Parks, albeit all with very limited or no accommodations for larger RVs. The campground always has full time volunteer hosts on site. About the only time the campground is really busy is when a rally is being hosted. Though they do not take reservations, a call ahead is suggested if you want to avoid being there during a rally. Other times they do space the campers out to give everyone a lot of space. Almost all of the campground sites provide good satellite access, and there are several strong over-the-air TV stations also available. Verizon and AT&T signals are weak in the campground but workable throughout most of the campground. - Johnson's

Plenty of sites, open space, all grass some shade. Most are fairly narrow but big rigs are easily accommodated. Sort of an "outback" type of park. Off the beaten path. Lots of nature hikes on site and nearby. Good river access by foot. Good river fishing nearby. - Jacob D

This park is set up in a rally configuration with long rows of close together sites in large field. It is perfect for large group or rally camping. Sites are grass surface. Full hookups plus free wifi which was slow when park was full. Over 100 sites. Large pavilion for group events. Short hike to river. The surrounding mountains are beautiful in fall color. - Florida 55

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

This campground is on the top of a mountain, up from Saluda NC., which I would not advise anyone with a unit bigger that 35' to attempt. The roads up are very winding and narrow, we were in the other lane trying to make the turns. Also need to use the Mountain Road entrance as there is a low bridge if you try the other way listed in the book. Also, interior roads are very narrow, only wide enough for one vehicle. We were is a 41 fifth wheel which was a little difficult to maneuver but they assured us we could do it. You need to pass the rr tracks on entrance in Saluda as you will drag your unit. - rose1234

My husband I and saw this campground on a Google search of the area and went to their website. We did not stay here, but we drove through it while we were visiting the area. The GPS shows an 11.11 foot underpass so I checked the website. It said to follow their directions and DO NOT GPS this campground. After following their directions we got there. My husband and I know we would not stay at this campground because the roads were so winding, curvy, and narrow. We have a 42' motor coach and it would have but too much for it. But for 5th wheels and pull behinds would be just fine. Now, as we drove through the campground, it looks like a local family campground, with many permanent residents. The road going to the campground was said to be dirt and with pot holes. They have paved the entire road up to the entrance of the park. But it is only a 1 lane road. Very, very tight if someone is going out. I gave it a 6 only because of the access to and from would not be suitable for large coaches. - Honeybear & Sugarbear

1st off, this place is not easy to find. We passed the entrance and ended up down a mountain and a train overpass in which we thought we would never be able to clear. Owner needs to a larger sign and well in advance to the turn in. Basically a one lane gravel road with lots of holes. Would not recommend anyone with a camper over 30'. Lots of permanent trailers there. The lake, if that's what you want to call it, is small, though our boys did have fun on the kayaks after they waited almost 30 minutes for one, because none of the children would give them up. Plenty to do for kids. Our site was a pull-through and REAL tight to get in. Not level at all. Most sites were not level. Small fire ring. - Prowler on the loose

Most sites are heavily wooded and the campground is very hilly. We upgraded to a premium site upon arrival so we could get one where our dish would work (it did). Ota was good with and the WIFI was decent. No AT&T but Verizon worked. The roads are gravel so they get bumpy and are pretty dusty. The bath house was clean and spacious but quite a hike uphill from our site. The pool was large and clean. Pretty convenient to Brevard. - Crottys

Black Forest was a very quiet campground with easy access to DuPont State Forest, Brevard, and Pisgah National Forest. There is a narrow, winding, gravel road that leads to check-in. The pool was open, but we didn't use it. The sites were level and the bathrooms were clean.
The campground has "Resort" in the name, but there is nothing about the campground that is resort-like. Our site was a pull-in which meant that the back of our rig was closest to the road - we arrived on a Thursday and asked to change to a back in site, but were told that they were already assigned (not reserved) and could not be changed - very inflexible, IMHO. The owners have strung a cable across the road leading to the campground sites - it is inconvenient to have to remove and replace the cable every time in and out.
Finally, the steps leading to the bathroom are uneven and there are no rails on either side to help steady folks walking up or down the stairs. At the least, it is dangerous, especially for older campers, and is also not constructed to code.
There are better choices in the area. - uga1988

Nice park in a very scenic area. Restrooms & shower house were very clean. Hosts were very helpful with info on the area. My only "negative" on this place was they assign you a site. I understand they need to manage their place, but if it's not crowded, then why can't you go in and scope out your own site that you prefer? - Bob806
