Best time ever!
We stayed at Stone Mountain Park Campground over Labor Day weekend. We were surprised by all of the things to do and see. We visited Stone Mountain Park to play putt putt, ride the train, visit the Dinosaur Exhibit and ride the Skyride. Our son loved it all! The 4D theatre was closed due to Covid-19. We visited the Rock Quarry and Grist Mill. The REI boathouse was also closed due to Covid-19 so you couldn’t rent paddle boards or kayaks. We saw plenty of people on the lake who had brought their own. There were great bicycle trails, we wish we would’ve had some to enjoy that aspect. We will be back, probably in the Winter for the events and tubing.
The campsite was nice and shaded. The lake views and Stone Mountain View was stunning! We didn’t visit the bathhouses. It is tight getting your camper backed in, you may have a line of trucks & campers behind you waiting while you unhook and move your truck. It was a little tense since we are still newbies to camping but everyone was nice, patient and understanding.
There's so much to do at Stone mountain from hiking, boating, glass blowing, festivals and the hike up and the views are stunning, lots of animal life and an amazing and helpful staff from the bottom to the top.The police/fire men are not only family but some of the best guys I've met in this state, always willing to help. As well as being Ancient Indian Land it is also near the beggining of the trail of tears. A very very special place!
We have stayed at this campground several times. Lots to do with the kids. Stone Mountain has so many free activities without going into the pay area.
Excellent campground with ultra-helpful staff. Per views of the mountain with many lots on the lake.
We stayed at site 436 Peach site. Full hookup except cable. The campground has WIFi, but you can’t do anything with it. Great campground for being close to Atlanta.
This is a beautiful park. The views are wonderful, hiking is great. This is our second trip and it was VERY crowded both times, maybe all the time. That takes its toll on the environment. There is lots of trash on all the trails. The camp sites are not ideal. We stayed in the blue loop this trip and picked a site that we thought would have a water view. It did but from the back side of the camper. The way the one way roads go all the views are from the wrong side. The site was not level at all and the pavement was all cracked making it hard to park. The bath houses are very clean but the shower that I used had no hot water. Overall we enjoyed the stay, obviously enough to make a second trip, but it will likely be the last. I think we prefer the less traveled places.
You have several choices, we chose a Premium Site with a Grill and Deck right next to the pool Full Hook Ups and Electricity. Best thing is your right down from all the Activities and History Stone mountain has… The Campground is Too Notch and very clean…. Traffic is heavy at times so be careful.
We were eying Stone Mountain our whole trip, and even moved around dates to make it for the Pumpkin festivities. I had heard great things from friends, and thought it worth a shot. We originally booked two nights, but ended up extending a third to take more time to explore the park.
This place has two things that need to be improved to be worth the premium charged. One being the general level of service provided (all around the mountain, not just the park), and the physical maintenance of the place (both financial improvements and general maintenance/housekeeping).
The service has nothing to do with the individual level of service, as everyone was pleasant and professional. It is the consistency and information provided. We were regularly told different information (items, prices, hours) from staff. This caused a lot of confusion with shuttles, propane times events etc. it is clear that the campground and mountain do not work well together. The shuttle service, while again had great service with drivers, was confusion. Half of the team said it ran Sunday, half didnt. Just beware that if you ask for something, that it is not set in stone. It is kids running the show.
The biggest complaint is physical upkeep. I was told that funding is finally coming through to improve sites and roads. They are horrible. Nobody was level. Pads are uneven and unsafe. Fire rings are half out together. Roads are just as bad, especially in the loops. Our site was not clean (common complaint), but we did benefit on Sunday when we were able to purge leftover firewood.
With all of the above being said, we love the place. We somehow got 389 just a few days out, and after driving around, think it’s the best. It fit our 30 foot rv and a 20 foot tent tightly, with room on sides for a set up (see photos). The path went directly to the water and had a nice rock and landing area for our raft. Campground was quiet and even when we had neighbors, it wasn’t too bad.
Lots of stink bugs and ants. Plan accordingly. Bathrooms are ok. Showers about one level below ok, but still manageable.
Overall, nice place, but not worth a premium ($69 for a site) plus a $20 fee. They need to lower prices or invest. Playground was nice, but that was about it for amenities actually inside the ground.
I was actually shocked at how terrible our actual campsite was; we stayed at site 29, which was supposedly intended for tent camping.
- The front gate staff was very nice; check in and general store staff were average
- The general store was very convenient and decently stocked
- The bathrooms and showers were pretty nice
- Beautiful lake view. It was nice to watch kayakers and rowing teams go by
- Nice tree placement for hammock
- Close to all Stone Mountain activities
- Garbage pickup each morning (but no metal trash can to store it in??)
- The site is on a freaking hill; there is no flat surface at all and no clearing, so you have no choice but to sleep on sticks/rocks. Thank God to REI for footprints and decent sleeping pads
- Site was dirty when I arrived
- No tent pad
- Parking area is crap; it's somewhere between gravel and nothing
- $20 parking fee
There is no way I would stay at this campground again; it was definitely made for RVs.
