Some of the best hiking in the state! Great camping as well.

We camped in loop a, non electric, with our A-liner camper and absolutely loved it. We had the best site in the entire place. ALL of the sites in A loop are shaded, except for... read more

We camped in loop a, non electric, with our A-liner camper and absolutely loved it. We had the best site in the entire place. ALL of the sites in A loop are shaded, except for 29-37. Loop B is almost all full sun and no privacy. The restroom in the American loop gets 3 out if 5 stars. Clean but... More

My family stopped in on our NC State Park tour and found the mountain to look like a Mini version of Stone Mountain Georgia. We visited the old plantation buildings and they were very interesting. I wish I had more time to stay but we were on a schedule to get to Boone. We plan to go back when we... More

Have wandered through the pathways of Stone Mountain for a couple odd decades now. The park has never failed to surprise me. From the shadows of birds flying between Stone Mountain to the sound of the water fall dropping to the bottom. Stairs are available to gain height when needed, a mock up of a farm from century last to... More

We were only there about 5 hours, this trip. Had been several years ago. We only took the loop trail, be aware, this trail is very strenuous. It's 4 1/2 miles of rough but beautiful terrain. One route takes you up endless flights of stairs thru the woods to the top of the falls. If you enter from the upper... More

Was so quiet during the week. Campfires, bbq and a tent with a loved one watching the wild deer come up to our campsite in the morning and the spectacular waterfalls. Which had a ton of stairs. The feild of monarch butterflies that come and sit on your hands,to the coyotes howling in the distance was amazing. We where the... More

Amazing views from the top of Stone Mountain, take the hike, well worth it! See the falls!! Campground is nice, spacious spots to park, easy in/out, small trees on the grounds, but did provide some shade. Not great cell phone service and no wifi but if you camping, who cares. Will certainly return to this beautiful place!!!

This is a very nice park. There are many trails (some are long and difficult). There are places to play in the water and some nice sights to see. There aren't very many facilities here or other amenities so use the bathrooms when you have a chance, wear good shoes, and come prepared to bring in everything you need for... More

We recently visited this beautiful state park and hiked to the very top. It was amazing and not too hard. If you get a chance be sure to go!

Very well kept up and clean. A lot of work was put into this so we could enjoy it. A lot of stairs to lead to the bottom of the 200 foot waterfall, so remember you have to climb back up. I visited top, middle and bottom and enjoyed the scenery all the way down. A lot of picture opportunities.
