The park encompasses 1,295 hectares (3,200 acres) of terrain. Overlook active geysers from a tower or navigate trails through suspended treetop paths.

    We only went to Stone Mountain to see the Confederate stone carving of Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis. The carving is worth the trip, though the $15 park entrance fee seems steep...  more »

    We watched the laser light show, took the lift up to the top of Stone Mountain, and went to the museum. The ride to the top of the mountain is a good time and the view of the carving is fabulous. This...  more »

    Stone Mountain is phenomenal park with family friendly activities all year round. The mountain itself and the carving is very impressive to see in person. During the summer, they have an equally impressive laser light show on the face of the mountain. During the winter, the base of the mountain is turned into a winter wonderland with snow tubing and other snow activities. I highly recommend visiting. If you live locally, the annual pass is well worth it.

    Well let me start by saying that I haven't been in over 20 years to the laser show.We booked a family trip online because my kids wanted to see the drones that they are using in the laser show.BUT let me tell you SAVE your πŸ’΅πŸ’΅ what a disappointment, The drones lifted straight up in the sky and set there for 2 minutes and came straight back down and landed. WOW!! The laser show hasn't changed much in the last 20 years. With all the πŸ’΅πŸ’΅ and new technology this great world has improved in the last 20 years you would think it would be mind blowing.I have to say that the best part of the laser show was when they made it look 3D with puzzle blocks and moving around that was awesome. If they made the show mostly like that they would have better reviews.Come on the park is making a killing in money and that's the best they can do !!!! Saving my money I recommend saving yours if you just go to laser show

    We had tons of fun here. Definitely needed more time to see everything. I would suggest getting there first thing in the morning. Restaurants are cute and fun for the kids. The laser light show was amazing. Only downside was exiting the park after laser show. It took us about 30 minutes to get out of the parking lot. We expected this though due to the amount of people that were there. Oh and it was over 100 degrees the day we went so if you are not a fan of hot weather make this a fall or winter trip. We plan on going back the next time we come through this area.

    Great place for the family. There is lots to do so plan to stay here the whole day. Park allows you to bring your own food which is great if traveling with big family. The laser show is my favorite and the view from the top of the mountain is beautiful! Must visit if you are ever in Georgia.

    Totally awesome park for all sorts of activity. Hiking up the mountain via trail is an excellent experience. Walking, jogging, running and biking is great. Picnic, barbecue, grilling in open or near gazebo is so cool. Kids play ground rocks. The lawn area for laser show is awesome venue. Everything one can think of to do outdoor is available. Only reason I have given 4 instead of 5 star is drones are not allowed. To some degree i understand the reason, but they should have restricted zone near monument or sky tram, etc for obvious reasons, but in other areas drones should be allowed.
