Yesterday, Cloud Nine pulled into Stone Mountain Park Campground, along the banks of Stone Mountain Lake, in Stone Mountain, Georgia, about 25 miles from Atlanta. This has to be one of the most beautiful, peaceful campgrounds we’ve ever encountered. It’s more like a state park, but on a grander scale.
Our stay here will be brief, but memorable. We plan to attend a Braves game tonight (checking off another MLB park from The Man's list), then leave here tomorrow morning, Lord willing.
After we got set up yesterday, we put on our adventure shoes and explored the peak of Stone Mountain. We decided not to join the climbers (as in I would have needed oxygen to get to the top), but took the easy way up and down, via tram. It felt like you were sitting on top of the world. The views are amazing! If you look closely, you can see Atlanta in the background.
One side of Stone Mountain has fabulous carvings of Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis. The grounds all around are immaculate.
There are plenty of family activities in this area, and if you're looking for a place to take the kiddos camping, I highly recommend Stone Mountain Park.
Until next time, sweet friends, keep on trucking.
