The park is not overly easy to find due to lack of signage outside the park, but once you get there it's a real beauty. The park and grounds, including the campground, are well kept up and clean. The camper check-in building is right on the way in so it's easy to get to, but the road is one-way, so very long rigs may have some difficulty making the right turn to get back on the road that leads to the campground after check-in. Also be advised that once the check-in closes the park gate is locked, so be sure to check the closing time and get there in advance of that time.

The campground is very clean and easy to navigate. Bathrooms have all been recently remodeled and are clean and well maintained. All the spots are in great shape and should not require a great deal of leveling. Electrical and water service are close in all spots that I looked at, and all were in excellent shape. Park staff are helpful and friendly and signage inside the park is well done. Garbage dumpsters and dump station are located at the entrance of the park, but should not impede traffic flow unless there are a large number of vehicles waiting. Firewood can be purchased at check-in or in the campground during certain times. The wood was $5 a bundle and was excellent quality when we visited. We stayed in a spot right on the stream that runs through the campground and it was very, very scenic. The campground accommodates large rigs without a lot of trouble, but not all spots are sized for larger units.

The park itself is amazing with lots to do (hiking, bird watching, historical buildings, and visitors center.) The mountain hike is well worth the effort and there are multiple waterfalls to see as well. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Double check arrival time to be sure that you get there before the gate closes, and hike to the summit of the mountain.

A hidden jewel in NC. Fall colors were gorgeous. Large level sites and all have fire rings and plenty of scenic views. We were in site 56 which is on the stream. The park is immaculate and the park rangers patrol the park. The bathrooms are new and clean. It is a very quiet and peaceful park. My husband fished in the trout streams. The Hutchinson Homestead is not to be missed. One of my very favorite state parks! We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Camped on site 66 which is in the open part of the campground. Site was gravel an pretty level. Showers were small but clean an modern. Campground was pretty full on the weekend but pretty empty by Tuesday. No cell service or over the air TV but Dish Tailgater worked well with a good view to the south. Local wineries are very good. Had a very nice meal and bottle of wine at Elk Creek vineyard. Pretty convenient to Elkin. Hike to the top of Stone mountain is pretty steep but the views are well worth it. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great campground. Lots are very large, easy to get in. Great hiking within walking distance. Only downside, showers were small and you have to keep pushing the fixture to keep water flowing. Will definitely visit again. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

For this price you get 50 amps and water. No sewer hookups are available but there is a dump station on exit. Sites are very spacious and most are level. Streets and RV parking spots are paved. Pad area is fine gravel with a fire ring and picnic table. We reserved well in advance and were able to secure site 54, which faces the babbling brook that runs through the center of the campground. Spotty Verizon service, no AT&T. Bathhouses offer hot showers but no laundry facilities. It was full Memorial Day weekend when we arrived but mostly empty by Monday afternoon. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice place to stay in the foothills of the Appalachians. The terrain make cell phone / Internet spotty / slow. My Verizon hot spot worked but others with different providers had no service. Antenna TV reception is nonexistent. Very nice hiking trails to Stone Mountain Falls and summit. Also an historic home-site from the 1800s. Pads are paved and level. Park was quiet during the 5 weekdays I was there but understand it can get crowded on the weekends and during the summer months. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Truck Camper.

Beautiful state park located about 11 miles from Elkin and 13 miles from Sparta. Nestled in a valley, surrounded by trees, you don't want to leave. A nighttime walk with a flashlight reveals the iridescent reflection of the eyes of the deer who come out to feed. Our site was out in the open. There was lots of rain which drained off. A creek wound through the park which provides a wonderful "white noise." The bathrooms are well maintained. We could not get AT&T phone connection and only three PBS stations with our antenna. But with this place, who cares? You can drive through the park, fish (with a license), swim at Widow's Creek, hike up Stone Mountain or to the Lower Falls. The closest store is a few miles away so if you need ice that is where you get it. This was an excellent week stay. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

First time camping here. Very nice area with great trails for hiking. Large campsites. Not a big deal for us but cell phone coverage at the campground is sporadic and not very useable. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We are newer RV owners (first timers) and this was the third place we've stayed so far. It was fantastic, in our opinion. The RV loop is in a very wooded area with a stream running through it. We stayed on site 58 in B loop, which was fantastic. Very level, huge site, fire ring, picnic table. All the sites on the outer part of the ring were cool and even the inner part, as those are right on the river. All the sites are quite large and seemed very level. We have two big Labs and this was a great site for them too, as we had grass around our site and could walk past the site next door (56) to go on a somewhat short trail into the woods along the stream. If you can reserve site 56 or 55 (which is booked every weekend through Ffall, I saw), we thought those would be ideal. 56 is great with its access directly onto the walking trail. 55 is huge and very private, and the area under your awning faces a wooded hillside so you wouldn't face anyone directly. Our site 58 was great too, though - I don't think you can really go wrong with any of them. Sites 40-43 were on their own mini-loop, which seemed neat too. It was very cold the weekend we were there and everyone had a fire - the smoke hangs in the valley you're in, so be prepared to have smoky-smelling clothes when it's cold. You can walk to the hiking trail to a waterfall (which was cool but about 200 steps, so be prepared) or a summit, which we didn't do this time. You can also walk up toward the end of B loop and get into some woods there - we let our dogs run back there as they weren't using it for campers at the time. We did not bring a car and were perfectly happy without one for the weekend. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Decent state park campground. We reserved back-in site and it was pretty level. The site had the tiny gravel, which kept it from being muddy when it rained, but I was constantly sweeping the little gravel out of our camper. We camped near a stream, which was nice. The campground was pretty booked up, but the sites were spaced out enough that it didn't feel crowded at all. The restrooms and showers were clean. The park has a variety of hiking trails, which we really enjoyed. Overall, it was a great value for the size and roominess of the site. As you head down the road toward the state park, you'll pass a country store on the right on a hill. That's definitely worth a stop for good burgers and ice cream. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love this campground and go several times a year. It has great views, and a nice trout stream running right through the middle. The campground is well maintained and clean. Has plenty of hiking and climbing. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love it here in the Spring and Fall. Summer months can be very hot since there are very few trees close to the sites and very little shade. All B loop sites are paved with fire rings that are cleaned between campers and lots and lots of space between sites. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great park. Nice and quiet. Lots of hiking. Great place for family to enjoy. Be aware that there are a few spots that will be extremely difficult to back into with a long trailer. Use Google Maps/Earth to take a look before booking your site. Will definitely be camping here again. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We will come back to Stone Mountain State Park! Sites are level and paved with fine gravel, with plenty of room between sites. Campground is quiet, with a great view of night sky. The stream ran behind our site (B50) and we were treated to the sound of water cascading over the rocks. Great trails; we saw deer everywhere at all hours of the day. The hike to the top of Stone Mountain, then down to the falls and back up, was well worth the effort. Grounds and facilities were extremely well-kept and clean, to the point that it even looked like the ashes and debris were removed from fire rings in between guests. I wish we had more than 3 days to spend at Stone Mountain; I think we all would have been happy to camp here for much longer. We'll be back! We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We love this campground. It has wide roads through the campground, large well kept sites and you'll find TONS of wildlife. Getting in and out was a breeze (we are over 50 feet), relatively close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, several trout streams and TONS of hiking. During our stay we did experience a power surge that fried our TV, central vac, inverter and converter. However that was the 2nd time I've experienced a power surge. The first time was less costly. I now have a surge protector! We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
