Paris Mountain State Park

Mountains

**Our Ultimate Outsider stamp is located on the bulletin board under the breezeway at the Park Center (stone bathhouse). There is also a stamp at the front desk.

Paris Mountain State Park’s roots date as far back as the Great Depression, when it was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. This heritage can still be seen in the preserved stone and timber outside of the renovated bathhouse, now known as the Park Center. Inside, the center features historical exhibits and a classroom to teach young and old about the park’s ecology.

Paris Mountain is located in the rapidly-developing city of Greenville, South Carolina, and although the park was once a rural retreat, bikers, hikers and those visiting Camp Buckhorn now keep the park bustling year round. When it comes to camping in state parks, the Paris Mountain State Park camping facilities are top-notch and include paved camping sites, 13 of which offer tent pads, and five trailside campsites around the North Lake Trail Loop.

Whether you’re coming from out of state or just looking to escape from Greenville, South Carolina for a few days, make your Paris Mountain State Park camping reservations and prepare for a weekend of great outdoor recreation!
