  • Beautiful place, but... Beware of Sexual Harasser I live in Stone Mountain and used to walk my dog on Indian Island at Stone Mountain Park every day. it is a beautiful place, and lots of people walk their dogs there. Last year, I met an eighty year old man who also walked his dog there. He seemed like a nice person, like everybody else who I had met in the park. I knew him for a few weeks and we walked our dogs together. I told him about an experience I'd had there with a man approaching me and saying something very inappropriate (of a sexual nature). I thought he understood. He said that even though he (also) found me attractive, that he could restrain himself because he was an older man. He said: "As long as you don't do anything to make me believe that you want otherwise." (This sounds very creepy as I write it. I should have been way more careful.) I agreed to be friends with this person who is married and has children and grandchildren. After I had exchanged phone numbers with him, he (almost immediately) said: "If we became lovers... I wouldn't want you to get hurt." I was too shocked, but the next time I met the man, I told him that I could not be friends with him. He kept calling me, and once he stopped his pickup truck in the middle of traffic to say: "Hi! How are you?". I reported all this to the police, but was told that they couldn't do anything because the man had not touched me. I was told that the man had not done anything illegal and that he had as much right to be there as I did. Over the past twelve months, I have complained about him to the police because he does not keep his dog on a leash and when his dog approaches me, he believes that he has the right to smile, and say: "Hi." and walk by me. I don't walk my dog there anymore. I write this review to warn other people, families with children, and older women like myself. Women have to be careful wherever they are, but beware of the eighty year old man who doesn't have his dog on a leash. He drives a silver colored pickup truck. He thinks he owns Indian Island. Description: Eighty year old male of European descent, walks a little bit stooped. Height: 5 ft 10 in. Looks like a normal (friendly) person, but has very little shame, and an extremely high sense of entitlement. Jan 11, 2018 His name is Jules Dominguez.
  • Stone Mountain is a great activity. The one mile hike is both challenging and fun (it gets really steep at the top), and the views are beautiful. I also once saw a velociraptor up there, so that was cool. I haven't really done much of the historical stuff or the rides, but they look fun albeit expensive. The laser light show and fireworks are a good time. I'm not sure what the admission/parking price is because I always park about a half mile away and then walk to the park. Definitely worth the drive!
  • Some of my favorite memories happened here. Most of the time I just climb the mountain and that alone makes the trip worthwhile. However, I also enjoy the laser show and I have find memories of swimming and camping here when I was a kid. There's a railroad around the mountain. On the trip a tour guide narrates a history of the area. In the 35 plus years I've enjoyed the place they have added more attractions than I can mention here. If you're in the North East metro Atlanta area don't miss this golden opportunity.
  • This is a great place for hiking, food, and entertainment. The nature hikes are fun and have a lot of good views. Going up the mountain is always a favorite. Also the Laser Light Show is a huge event and is very fun for people of all ages (it is loud however). Also the 3D movie, Ride the Duck, Great Barn, and SkyHike are great for children. The camp grounds are also orderly and in a good location.
  • This is a magical place to visit especially this time of the year you can slay down Snow Hill's walk through the shops that are all decorated in Christmas lights. If you need a start on the holiday season Stone Mountain park is the place to go. The hotels and restaurants there are really good and its such a good family setting. They even have a snow angel that flies across the little village and it will delight your children. Have a very happy holiday season at Stone Mountain
