Stone Mountain State Park

The massive granite dome at Stone Mountain State Park keeps watch on park visitors enjoying nearly every type of outdoor activity – camping, hiking, climbing, fishing, picnicking, horseback riding and more. There are more than 18 miles of trails, matched by more than 20 miles of designated trout waters in this park that spreads below the Blue Ridge Parkway. A campground offers 90 sites, some with utility hookups, and group and backpacking campsites are nearby. Rock climbing is allowed by permit on the towering, 600-foot granite face of the landmark mountain, and climbers look down on Hutchinson Homestead, a restored mid-19th century mountain farm. Expansive picnic grounds with shelters invite reunions and community gatherings.

Prescribed Fires Notice

Staff from NC State Parks in partnership with the North Carolina Forest Service is planning two Prescribed fires at Stone Mountain State Park. The first will be at Blackjack Ridge and will burn 320 acres. The second is the Wolf Rock Burn, which will burn 400 acres. The purpose of these burns is to reduce the fuel load on the forest floor, which will reduce the chance of a devastating wildfire and improve the habitat for native species to thrive. These burns will affect the availability of park facilities.
