I am a native Georgian who has grown up around this park with many childhood memories that I shared with my children and now my grandchildren. Yes, the park is more commercial than it used to be but there is still special moments to share with family and friends. There are many activities to enjoy from the old river boat to the train that circles the mountain to the incline that takes you to the top.
There is a challenging golf course,trails to hike,fishing,camping, and some good old fashioned country food at the Stone Mountain Inn. There are special events at the base of the mountain and the Laser Show and Snow Mountain are crowd favorites.
Make no mistake the real star is the mountain and the carving on the front. If you want the real experience of what it used to be like, then park your car and climb the mountain for a great view of the Atlanta skyline and surrounding area.

I grew up about 5 miles from the park. The past several years the park has become a lot more commercial. A lot of people will like this, but I long for the good 'ole days.

Definitely will return here. This park gets mixed reviews but for our family it was very nice. The only complaint is lack of cheap and easy dining options, but there are close places to eat that make up for that. The view from the top of spectacular, and the village had plenty of stuff to keep us and the kids entertained for a couple of days.

This is a great place to visit to celebrate Christmas. Almost every square inch of the buildings in the main section are covered in Christmas lights. They have many Christmas shows to entertain you (see the schedule). The night-time train ride around the mountain is a not-to-be-missed experience. You will want to get on the 6:00 train if possible. If you miss that one, take the earliest one possible. The lines for this will be very long. Take your time and don't get in a rush and you will be fine. Don't forget the skylift, museum, covered bridge, quarry exhibit, and the other attractions outside of the core area. You can also walk up the side of the mountain. It's not a bad walk and you will be rewarded with many great views along the way.
