As I told you the other day, my family took a little camping trip to Stone Mountain Park in Stone Mountain, Georgia. It was a great little adventure and we will definitely be visiting again soon. I’m breaking this up in a couple different posts since there is so much to tell!
We got there on Wednesday evening and set up camp at the Stone Mountain Park Campground. The sites are somewhat uneven, but there is a cart near the office with boards that you can use to help level your camper. We were very grateful for that! Each site is equipped with a grill and a picnic table. Ours even had a little fire ring, which was perfect for s’mores.
Wednesday evening we relaxed, cooked hot dogs, and then made our way to the Lasershow Spectacular. Something I didn’t know about the campground is that they have a shuttle to take you right to the activities! You don’t have to move your car unless you want! The shuttle runs every 30 minutes and up to 30 minutes after the Lasershow Spectacular.
At the Lasershow Spectacular, we did the Snack Terrace option. You can easily do the free option as well, but if you’d like a seat and some snacks, the Snack Terrace is a great option. You get a great viewing location and chairs to sit.
Lasershow Snack Terrace seating includes:
- Lasershow Terrace Seat
- Unlimited popcorn that can be enjoyed until the start of the show
- One Coca-Cola® beverage
Did I mention the unlimited popcorn? That was my youngest kid’s favorite part!
Thursday morning we decided to do something that we had never done since having kids. We decided to actually CLIMB Stone Mountain!
We were a little hesitant not knowing how the kids would do, but they completely surprised us! They did great! I was the one dragging! In my defense, I was also carrying the backpacks with 6 bottles of waters, snacks, and first aid kit, just in case. Other than our youngest needing carrying the last slope of the hike, everyone did great! Coming down was much easier 🙂
We got to the top around 10:15 am and went to the building to get cooled down a bit. It was locked. Bummer. We decided to stand and check out the view and before we knew it, guess what we got to see come up the hill! The local Police Department driving on the mountain! It was a really windy morning so they said they weren’t able to run the sky ride to get the workers up to the top. When it’s too windy, they drive the workers up! The kids thought that was super neat (and my hubby did, too!)
Stay tuned for more from our trip in the next day or so!
