Stone Mountain Park Campground 2012

Georgia, Georgia
The whole day through
Just an old sweet song
Keeps Georgia on my mind

Stone Mountain Park CampgroundWith the beautiful fall weather in full swing, a great place to head to is Atlanta, Georgia.  We made our base camp at Stone Mountain Park Campground, ranked as Georgia’s #1 campground by Woodall’s.

Stone Mountain Park CampgroundWhile it is not centrally located, it does provide easy access to all that Atlanta has to offer.  Better yet, your stay at the campground gives you access to the free attractions at Stone Mountain Park since you are inside the facility.  You can read more about Stone Mountain Park through our post here.

Stone Mountain Park CampgroundBoasting over 400 sites, this is a large campground.  The sites range from basic tent sites all the way to premium sites that include cable, wireless Internet, a private deck, and a gas grill (pictured above).  We did find the cable signal somewhat weak and the wireless Internet oversubscribed.  If you need to use Internet during your trip I would recommend that you bring your own and not rely on the park’s Internet.  Perhaps our family is just too connected.

Stone Mountain Park CampgroundThere are plenty of activities in season that take place in the Lewallen Pavilion.  When activities aren’t going on there is a nice fire pit in the center that you can enjoy.

The campground was nicely decorated and festive for the fall.

Stone Mountain Park CampgroundFor a reasonable fee you can rent rowboats or pedal boats in the general store for use on Stone Mountain Lake.  The hours of the campground general store are convenient and the staff is very helpful and friendly.

Stone Mountain Park CampgroundTo illustrate this point, we usually keep wooden clothespins stocked to help seal out air from food bags.  After finding out the general store didn’t have any, they surprised us by providing some rubber bands at no charge.  This makeshift solution worked remarkably and the extra effort provided by the staff was greatly appreciated.

Despite a few short comings in the services provided, we enjoyed our stay and will be back again in the near future.  We give Stone Mountain Park Campground 4 out of 5 stars.  Be sure to consider this campground the next time you are in the Atlanta area.

 

Happy Camping!
