Primitive Backpack Sites E & F CLOSED...   

Stone Mountain State Park's primitive backpack sites E and F along Widow's Creek Trail have been closed indefinitely due to damage.  We are working with our trail department to see they can be fixed or relocate them to another location along the trail. We appreciate your patience as we try to evaluate and reconstruct these sites to be reopened for your enjoyment.
