Events and Programs
Stone Mountain State Park will be conducting a prescribed burn 3/7-3/11. Due to the nature of fire we are closing the backpack sites to guest until after the prescribed burn.Last updated on: Thursday, March 4, 2021
Stone Mountain State Park now routinely reaches capacity by 10 a.m. on weekends. Once parking areas are full, the park will be closed to all incoming traffic. Weekdays are the best time to visit. If you must visit on a weekend, plan to arrive early in the morning, and be prepared with a backup plan if the park is full when you arrive. Keep in mind gate hours, which are posted at entrances. Currently, the park is open from 7am to 8pm. The only exception is Christmas Day, when all park facilities are closed.Last updated on: Wednesday, March 3, 2021
