went today with my family. Fun! The hike is soo exhausting but fun! They have the cool snack bar at the top. Attractions are fun but you need a pass for all. Fun overall.

We went to Stone Mountain as part of a family trip for Spring Break. I had not been in probably 25 years. The mountain is beautiful. The views from the top are amazing. The dinosaur exhibits were great for our 4-year-old. We also rode the train around the mountain. We did the all-access pass and reserved terrace seating for the laser show. For what we did, I think it was a little overpriced. There's a lot of walking and it's very hilly, so be prepared. The laser show at the end was fine. The drones were a letdown, though. I think the reserved terrace seating was a waste of money. Bring some collapsible chairs and sit on the lawn instead. Overall, we had a lot of fun here. Definitely need to spend a whole day to experience this place.

The trail was a bit of a challenge. We started up the mountain first then did the trail. The trail map needs to be to scale. This was a bit confusing at times.

The grist mill shaft is broken. But the flowers were starting to bloom so it was a very nice visit.

The family tent area is a good deal for $36.

it's fun. it's historical. It's family friendly. take lunch with you because the food is not that great. There's shops to shop at. rides to ride. A train to go around the whole place is really fun and affordable. it's just a really good way to spend the day.

First the positives. Skylift and the observation from the top: excellent views, not too bad on the wait time. Hike to the top: several hundred folks on the trail on a Saturday, but a short steep easy walk. I recommend tread if you are hiking down. Laser show: fun for the kids (might want to distract them from the first story which was a knight courting a beach bunny - weird bordering inappropriate) with fireworks, pyro tech and drones. Art work is fairly juvenile, but after the first four strange stories it gets fun with a salute to the South and Georgia history.
Now the negatives. The map is worthless. We had no idea where anything was at any given time. There are only two trails, one that goes up and one that goes around. There were not trail maps or signs to say how long the around trail was, nor anything in the center of the park on on the map to tell where the trail up the mountain was. We spent so much time trying to find things that we ended up not riding the Ducks, which is said to be the best attraction. The train was OK but the guide laugh-talked through the whole thing on very loud speakers. The sky hike line was 75 folks deep when we got to it so we didn't wait around. The sign may say "restaurant" but there are none open in Spring. Two snack bars are open but it was the worst food we have ever eaten. Burgers sit out with cold fries and you grab them off the warmer for a $9 combo ($4 drink is extra), the $9 salad was OK but we were sick for a few hours afterwards. We did learn from asking around that the golf course had public dining and enjoyed a sit down meal with a view of the lake and mountain. My son said our server was "the most disciplinary server he had ever experienced." The fried green tomatoes were truly deep fried as opposed to the rolled in corn-meal pan fried we expected and with the exception of burning our mouths on them they were great. I have a separate review for the restaurant. Worst of all was the campground. The "lakeside" campsites are on a gravel hill sliding it's way into the lake if not for the roots of seemingly dead trees jutting out of the ground. No shade, no privacy and no safe place to walk. Our first site had a dead branch directly over the tent pad. The highway noise was loud all night.
In summary: Bring your own food, don't use the park map and don't try to tent camp!
