“Great place to tent camp”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

My husband and I love to go tent camping here in the early summer. The tent sites are spacious and well maintained and you can't beat the price per night. There's alot of places to swim or just play in the water. The hiking trails are very nice and the view from the top of Stone Mountain is amazing!

“Beautiful Park, Awesome Hiking.”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Went with my family (2 teenage sons). We ended up hiking the Stone Mountain Loop Trail. Can't believe we did the whole thing! We don't hike that often... It was awesome! Waterfalls are gorgeous, the stone mountain overlook is truly amazing. Have never seen anything like it. The old homestead area was a nice break. It was cool to look up at the mountain and see where you have been. You can see the homestead from the overlook. Worth taking hikes in parts if you don't have time or energy to do all at once! I look forward to going back some day!

“Great Hiking Trails and Beautiful Views”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

This park has some great hiking trails with wonderful views. There is also The old Hutchinson's homestead with buildings from past years gone by. It is so interesting and if you're lucky, there may be someone around the log cabin to give you details on the place. It has a magnificent waterfall along the way but be wary, if you try to climb out on the rocks it is so slippery that several have fallen to their death. The same goes for the Stone Mountain rock. People have been known to step out too far and die falling as well. Use common sense and you will have a wonderful outdoor experience. You can enter two ways to the trail. The upper section is the more strenuous part of the trail, but if you drive down to the lower end, it is much easier and you are closer to the old homestead. Highly recommend if you love being out in nature and like hiking.
