Events and Programs

Stone Mountain State Park offers a variety of learning opportunities for all ages. Typically led by park rangers, these interpretive programs allow the public to gain perspective into what makes North Carolina state parks naturally wonderful. ​

Most of the events are free, though some require pre-registration. All give park visitors deeper insight into the natural world. Call the park office for more information.

 

Join a Ranger at the horse trailer parking area for a beginner’s fly fishing program that includes a discussion of Delayed Harvest rules and regulations, knot tying, fly selection and casting techniques. Participants will get the opportunity to practice casting and try their luck at catching stocked mountain trout in the stream.  Space is limited to the first 10 participants to sign up and all equipment is provided. Email Ranger Michael Wood at michael.wood@ncparks.gov for availability. Program will last approximately 2.5 hours and participants may bring waders or water shoes if desired. Weather Permitting!
