  • This State Park is absolutely stunning. Great hiking trails that are a little more challenging than most, and beautiful scenery. The stone mountain itself is breathtaking and there are waterfalls where you can actually swim! There is also a bit of history; old buildings from before the park was established that you can see inside and learn the history of the owners. This is a wonderful place for nature enthusiasts and those who love to hike and see some great sights. Would recommend!!! Going back in the summer to go swimming, but beautiful leaves changing in the fall. Stunning park!
  • One of the most breathtaking views I've seen at a state park. The best part was how open it was. Plenty of space to spread out so you weren't crowded with other people trying to enjoy the view. The waterfall was a great waterfall. Lots of steps, which made it a quick walk to the bottom but would have been very difficult going back up. Campground was very nice as an added bonus.
  • Stone Mountain State Park is very unique. It is made of one huge rock. You can see the park from the top of this huge rock or you can look at the rock from the bottom. Either way, it is very good. We used to walk on the rock, but that could be very dangerous, especially when wet. Now there are many steps built over the rock. It is safer but hard on the legs. Just be prepared to climb up and down many steps. If you want to do the Stone Mountain Loop Trail, give yourself enough time to rest here and there so you won't be exhausted. It took us almost 5 hours, including lunch break, bathroom break and rest time. Waterfall is beautiful, and the Hutchinson Homestead is very nostalgic.
  • Great hiking around here. Shoes stick to the rock as hell. Relaxing views on top.
  • One of my favorite parks in North Carolina. Great family camping and primitive camping. The waterfalls are very fun to slide down in the Summer and the hikes up on the granite mountains are a unique experience. Beautiful and special place.
