If you can’t walk up the mountain, this is a must. The ride was short and easy. The views from the top are awesome.

It was a smooth ride up with a great conductor. The views are great and the breeze was a nice change in temperature. It is a great place to sit and reflect. Souvenir and snacks are sold up top, too.

Great views of the mountain and surrounding areas. Up on top you can walk around and explore this freak of nature where small pools of water actually contain a type of freshwater shrimp. Strange flowers grow from the cracks and deformed trees grow from weak...More

You can take the cable car up, or you can hike up from the East most part of the mountain. Either way, the views from the top are AMAZING. Be Safe, there's fencing, but every year someone jumps over the fences and falls off the...More

The cable car lift is a great way for travelers to get a view of the surrounding area. The ride to the top is quick. There are only a few seats on the car so if you are someone that needs to sit you should...More

Great experience. But do know that if you go in the summer it is hot. This is a cable car ~ no air conditioning. And another thing ~ if it is busy, they do pack you in. Once on the top of the mountain you...More

The campground has many different ways to camp. There is tent and RV camping but you also can rent a camper or a Yurt. If you camp or stay on property, you don't pay for parking.

I’m not sure. I know it doesn’t run if the winds are too strong so I would say that it probably doesn’t.

Just tell them to take ou to the Sky lift at Stone Mountain Park. I am very confidant that you won't have any issue in finding it. A very well marked attraction!
