Stone Mountain Park is one of Georgia's most popular attractions and features a variety of family activities. There are 3,200 acres of natural beauty and many historical sights to explore. Stone Mountain Park is known for its annual Yellow Daisy Festival, Indian Festival, Stone Mountain Christmas, Snow Mountain and of course laser light show featuring fantastic fireworks to end the night.
Plan to take a cable car to the top of Stone Mountain and get an up-close look at the Stone Mountain Carving. It's beautiful and well worth the ride or hike. There is also SkyHike, the nation's largest adventure course.
The park offers several places to spend the night. The Marriott Stone Mountain Inn, Evergreen Marriott resort or bring your tent or RV and stay in the campground.
There are plenty of covered outdoor pavilion's for holding a family reunion or company picnic.
Stone Mountain is open year-round, but attraction hours vary by season. Check for the hours of operations and events calendar for schedules on the date(s) of your visit.
The RV campground looked well-kept but a little tight for big rigs. There are only a few pull-thru spaces. There all full hook-ups available and also monthly rental sites available. We have not camped here but the sites look great for smaller rigs and of course great tent camping.
We enjoyed the exhibit gallery where we learned about the geology and ecology of the mountain and a documentary film in the Confederal Hall about the history of the carvings and "The Battle for Georgia."
