View of Stone Mountain at Stone Mountain State Park
Weekend delays   

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.

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.
