  • Stone Mountain State Park, in northwestern North Carolina, offers invigorating walks, impressive vistas, and idyllic environs for fishing, horseback riding, picnicking, and camping. A spectacular 600-...  more »
  • There were barely 2 camping sites available when we booked and the single image of our campsite on the website itself looked too good to be true. It was actually so much better than the picture can do...  more »

  • 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 is a place is a rare gem.
  • Beautiful mountain and state park. There are plenty spots for swimming, fishing and having picnics. It is well maintained and the roads are paved in most of the park. Looking forward for some catch and release fishing soon. Be aware some areas of the river are private property beside the park, be nice and don't leave trash behind.
  • Great park. You can hike, bike, climb, camp and fish. Last time I was there was in the water with the fly rod. Delayed harvest area of river in park. Great fishing and lots of anglers love this park. Get there early and claim your spot. Not going to tell you my favorite location ;), lets just say it has a heavenly location. Enjoy the outdoors with friends and family.
  • Nice to look at but website is deceiving because after you are in the park you have to pay again to do any of the things they offer. We paid to get in and even the train did not run. It also did not help when inquiring about these things, that four different staff members gave us four different answers on things opening and cost to get in. “Go over to the Carolina house, it’s a must see and it’s free to get in” once over there, fifteen dollars a person. Novel idea but it is not a state park, only in title only and is ran by corporate busines. No thank you coke, I can not recommend your park.
  • PROS: State park in NC- this Florida girl appreciates being on a mountain. unique exposed dome of the mountain. CONS: This park had a very "lived on" vibe going on. There were houses built up high on the mountainsides that were viable from some of the lookout points, and so were the power lines leading to them. We missed the last McDonald's as we approached and found there was only a post store that offered a limited selection of foods. Part of the trail from the lower trailhead parking was closed and signs were posted, however the signs were confusing and it was not made clear that you could not access the Stone Mountain Loop Trail from there. We would have continued from our Stone Mountain Falls hike to reach the summit if that was the case. Instead we did a lot of backtracking.
