If you missed my other post, you may want to check out Our Camping Trip at Stone Mountain (Part 1)
After our hike up the mountain, we went back to the campground, where the pool was waiting for us! Just for the record, coming down is MUCH easier than going up 🙂 The pool was nice and refreshing.
After the pool, we visited the campground playground to play and dry off and then walked to the campground store where we snagged some ice creams to replenish our energy. The campground store was very well stocked on things that you may have forgotten to bring with you.
Then it was off to the fun activities! Stone Mountain Park has lots of adventure pass options and some even include meals. You can visit their website for more information on what is available.
If you purchase an Adventure Pass, you can add a Ride the Duck ticket for just $9. We had never done this attraction before the trip, and it was a hit! Our guide was hilarious and kept us laughing. Even more awesome, he let the kids drive the Duck while it was in the water! I think it was the highlight of our kids’ day! We are very glad we finally tried it!
After the ducks, we went back to the campground where we made quesadillas on the grill and relaxed at our campsite. We started packing up to go to the Lasershow Spectacular when a storm hit! Boo! What’s really neat is that at the campground, a horn will sound when lightning is nearby! We were able to hear that and opt to stay at our campsite instead of being caught in the downpour! When the storm passes, the horn does a quick 3 sounds to let you know it’s over. It is NOT a tornado alarm, but merely a lightning alert. I thought this was a great thing to have!
We were a little disappointed to not be able to see the Lasershow Spectacular a second time, but we made the best of it! We brought out our cards and played with them in the camper!
The next morning was time to leave. Boo! We had a great time and will definitely be back, only to take a much longer trip! 2 nights was far too short to see and do everything! Can’t wait to go again and have more adventures!
Thanks again to our friends at Stone Mountain Park for assisting us in this adventure!
