We drove through Stone State Park after an early morning rain. I think we were the only car in the park. We enjoyed the scenic outlook but made the mistake of leaving our car doors open and a bunch of mosquitos flew in the car. LOL, our error. It seems like a nice place for a short hike or picnic,...

We stayed at the campground for one night with our small RV. It was a bit of chore to get through since our on-line map app ended the route a mile or so away from the entrance and we had to circle back around quite a bit to get to the main entrance of the park. the park looks really... More

We drove through the park to see as much as possible and stopped at different areas. There were lots of hiking trails with stairs and overlooks. The views were absolutely gorgeous with green foliage all around. Would love to spend a day here and have a picnic!

Was only able to drive around Stone park as the weather was not great with rain. Looks like it has some nice trails to hike. Maybe next time I visit I can do some hiking.

My daughter and I visited here on July 4. There were plenty of picnickers, but we weren't in anyone's way, and vice versa. We hiked through the woods and drove through the park. The hiking was pleasant, fun trails without too much physical challenge. It was a very hot day, but we were cool under all the tree cover!

The park is not open to vehicles, no park employees are on staff but you can park at an entrance & hike. It offers wooded trails with beautiful scenic lookouts. It's quiet, you'll most likely see a deer or squirrel before you see another person.

Nice winding roads and trails through out the park, being free helped out too, on the highest overlook turnout was beautiful views of South Dakota and the park, we counted at least 20 eagles and hawks soaring above on the thermals, which was a surprise since it was so cold and windy, but with the abundance of rabbits and squirrels...

This is a great park with camping, hiking, and nice picnic areas. Only complaint is that it can get a little crowded at times during summer and at times can feel like you are right on top of other people. Its a great place to be so that is understandable.
