Stone Mountain State Park

The massive granite dome at Stone Mountain State Park keeps watch on park visitors enjoying nearly every type of outdoor activity - camping, hiking, climbing, fishing, picnicking, horseback riding and more. There are more than 18 miles of trails, matched by more than 20 miles of designated trout waters in this park that spreads below the Blue Ridge Parkway. A campground offers 90 sites, some with utility hookups, and group and backpacking campsites are nearby. Rock climbing is allowed by permit on the towering, 600-foot granite face of the landmark mountain, and climbers look down on Hutchinson Homestead, a restored mid-19th century mountain farm. Expansive picnic grounds with shelters invite reunions and community gatherings.

Great park that as a lot to offer for the weekend adventurer. This is a great place to bring your young kids to initiate them to the joy of camping, fishing and hiking. The staff is very nice and courteous! The camping site as a check-in station where they sale a few items like snack, soda, souvenirs, little emergency items, ect... Bathrooms were clean and recently updated, the sites were clean and the fire pits as well. There is a nice little creek in the middle of the camping sites that kids can go play in and cool off. The creek in the parks are all fairly small and perfect for young children to play in. There is a delayed harvest trout creek that offer a nice challenge to all that like to fish for trout. Stone mountain as some nice trails for all caliber of hikers and offers great breath taking views of the Blue Ridge mountains!!

Amazing park with great scenery, waterfalls, breathtaking views and many trails! Widows Creek Falls is a must see, especially for those who are learning how photograph waterfalls. Short hike from the road, lots of different angles to shoot and great scenery around the falls. Also recommend hiking to the top of the mountain. The stone formation is very interesting & the view is nice.

This is a unique slice of geography tucked away in a small valley of enormous history. The 600 foot high face is maybe best viewed from Wolf Rock, almost the same elevation. But from the homestead in between you get the impression of just how long the expansive formation is. The back side of WR is also just as impressive and you’re able to walk around forever. It’s an easier walk up, a part you shouldn’t pass up. But climb both and make a day of it with a pack lunch. This place is a rare gem.

This is a great park with an awesome view and great trail for a complete day hike. Elevation creates a round trip tough for novice hikers. But as long as you're semi in shape, brought snack and water, you'll be fine. Campground and visitors center were great as well.

Had a great day on the Mt. If your looking for a good hike check the stone mountain loop trail. Start in the upper parking lot and stay to the right. Head to the top first and eat a picnic lunch. From the top stay on smlt and head to Hutchinson Homestead (great view of the face, you may get lucky and see climbers). Head towards Middles falls (lower falls isn't much to look at) check it out and head back to smlt and finish with stone mountain falls. If it's summer bring your suit and take a dip. The parking lot you started at is close to the falls. Be aware there are quite a bit of stairs you have to climb back up to get to the parking lot. Fun hike!
