The summit

If you have to take any trail I would suggest the one that leads to the summit, it will not disappoint, there's plenty of rocks to climb on or view if your adventurous!

This park is off the beaten path but worth every minute of the time to get there. The trails are always in perfect shape and they are challenging but not impossible for people of all ages. The sites – between the summit of Stone Mountain and the 200-foot waterfall – are incredible and all of the trails are worthy of... More

Loved this park, from the helpful ranger in the visitors center to the rushing rivers throughout. Didn't have time to hike but will definitely be back.

We had never stayed at this park before, only hiked. This past week we stayed 3 nights in an RV. This park had probably the best facilities of any state park we have ever stayed in (this includes NC, SC, GA, FL). Everything is paved, each site has a large pad for a tent and fire ring, and new water... More

I camped here with friends from church and had a great time! The hike was great with wonderful views. The trail was challenging but we all managed with no problems. Just pace yourself and stop to rest if needed and you will be fine. I am going back this spring and taking my son. If you like to hike this... More

We went early in the morning during the winter but it was still a great hike. We did the stone creek trail- I think that's what it was called. We saw a waterfall and followed it all the way down and continued following the creek. We ended up hiking a good 2.5 out and 2.5 back. We passed by the... More

My wife and I traveled to this park after reading about it on other camping blogs. It is so popular that we had to make reservations 6 months in advance. We stayed for 7 days, arriving and leaving on a Sunday. We were hauling our camper, so we picked our route carefully as the roads get narrow and twisty the... More

Stone Mountain Park is a beautiful state park. They have a couple of waterfalls and swimming holes that you can bathe in during the summer months, but watch out the water is COLD, but the kids don't mind it. There are picnic areas, and a beautiful wildlife. You can drive down the main road in the park real slow and... More

A short easy hike to the waterfall will leave you with a breathtaking view of this beautiful site! It is worth it to take the stairs to the bottom of the falls!
