“Good Fishing”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I like to go to Paris Mountain State Park because the fishing, especially, bass, is awesome. Reservoir #3 is the best one to fish at; However, this is about a 4 mile hike through the trail to get there, so if you catch any fish that you want to take back, just keep in mind of the 4 mile hike back ;(. It is very family friendly, and there is romantic scenery for the adults. My fiancé and I like to go here about 3 or 4 times a year.

“Not for babies!!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We went just for the swimming and although there was a nice dock for diving, there was no sand, a lot (and I mean a lot) of goose droppings and to get to the water you had to walk down a lot of steep steps which made it impossible with a stroller. Had to change the baby on a bench as there was no place to lay a towel on the ground.

“Great place for hiking”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Paris Mountain is a great place to visit. They've got a small lake with canoes and peddle boats you can use, places for picnicking, camping, and trails of varying difficulty to hike or bike on. There are a couple of easy trails around the lake area. But at the top of the mountain they have a difficult trail that should challenge everyone.

“Aging State Park”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Paris Mountain is an aging State Park with a lot to offer. Nice lake for swimming, kaiaking, canoeing, walking, hiking, biking, etc. The campground was clean an nicely spaced. There were a lot of dogs there and if you're not a dog person that can be uncomfortable. The staff was great and very accommodating. It is also close to a lot of restaurants, etc. if you don't want to cook! We will go back!
