Camp Buckhorn

The popular lodge at Camp Buckhorn, a dining hall and meeting facility tucked deep in the forest at Paris Mountain State Park, but only six miles from downtown Greenville, has been renovated and is open for reservations.  Camp Buckhorn has been a popular setting for weddings, family reunions, church retreats, business retreats and group gatherings since it was built with logs and rubble stone by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1936-37.
