I had planned to hike here but it was raining, but i drove through anyway and it was beautiful. I wish i could have hiked. I might come back to town just to hike here. There are several lookouts with beautiful views of the woods and the city. It seemed a little tricky to get there (and my gps got... More

I often drive through Stone Park on my way from my friend's house back to mine. It's always quiet and peaceful with different sights to see depending on the season. My favorite season is fall to catch the many colors of the changing leaves and grasses. Go up on one of the ridges and look out over the surrounding areas...so... More

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.
