Somehow, I expected the carving to occupy more of the face of the mountain than it does. Unless you plan to get very close, you may need binoculars to get a good view of the 3 Confederate heroes depicted. For some history and background, sure...More

Monument to traitors? Why? Yes, the confederacy is part of history, but we shouldn't be venerating the rebellion by making monuments to wannabe heroes. Sandblast the carving!

The carving is in very good shape. All kinds of vantage points for a photo shot, but the best view is from the Summit Skyride.

The carving is breathtaking and certainly an historical icon. The message of unity and brotherhood was so inspiring and blessed. Clearly there is no issue regarding the glorification of slavery. It is our history and whereas slavery is a component, it isn’t the crux of...More

We loved Stone Mountain not our first visit here but it’s been awhile. We rode the train around the park but an extra price for riding it which should have been included in entrance price. There was a 4D movie that was really good. They...More

Didn’t feel compelled to take pictures. Our comments were “oh look there’s a mural. Someone worked hard on that I bet.”

Not sure about parking, since I was down there with family and they dropped me off to visit it, they also came back and picked me up from there. They didn’t park at all

I believe the entire complex is called memorial park and it is free with park admission. The best place to watch is on the big lawn right in front of the carving. Bring a blanket or lawn chair though
