    It's been many years since I've been there tent camping. I'm going back on May 14-15. Anyone else going to this North Carolina hideaway ?

    Dr Bill how was your trip?

    Been awhile since we went to Stone Mtn. Last time we went we did not have our pup or kids. Looking forward to going again this time with our pup and kids (4 and 2).

    We camped there for our first trip in our NTU pup. DS was only 6 weeks old at the time. We had a great time and would definitely go back. The sites in Loop B are huge.

    We went last year. did not know you had to make reservations now.. They were BOOKED solid!!! They refered us to a small family run campground just outside the back gate. WAS THE BEST!!! ALL but 3 sites were creekside!! there was a swim spot, water COLD!!!!! But great!! Water & Electric! Their bundles of wood were $5. AND More then 2ft round!! & they gave you a free bag of kindlin! They raise Free Range chickens. when we asked them for the nearest store for eggs, they GAVE US 2 dozen FRESH eggs!!! They have flushing toilets & showers. It is in the wide open, trees are to one side, they planted more trees , but you know they take a while to grow.... Cedar Creek Family Campgrounds. You are about 5 miles from all the hiking in the State Park. The scenery is OMG bring and extra SD card & Batteries!!!

    I live about 45 minutes from Stone Mountain State Park, but I have never heard of the campground that you mentioned. It sounds great! Do you have a number? I couldn't find it in the local phone book. What were the rates like?

    We love camping at Cedar Rock, the owner, Sydny (think I spelled it right, probably not) is so nice. We haven't camped in state park since we found Cedar Rock.... Love that tiny little spot. Hate to tell people about, afraid it will get too popular and then WE won't get a spot!

    Reviving old thread... Looking at Stone Mountain for a trip in October. I don't want hookups - I want one of the sites in A loop in the woods. But it looks like there is some terrain in A loop. Which sites are the most level in the the woods? Trees are a requirement (kids gotta have hammocks).

    Anyone with good memory of the A loop at Stone Mountain State Park?

    We camped there last June, but camped in loop B. No help on loop A.

    We got there before they went home at the ranger's office, and they let me change sites after I looked over all the sites, without additional charge.

    You can see pics of each site at www.ncparks.gov, as well as descriptions of whether each site is level or not.

    They all say the driveway is level, but the photos suggest otherwise. I also can't quite tell between site photos and Google Earth how the slope adjusts and where the Ranger residences are.

    I'm sure most sites will be OK - I'm just looking to see if the community has knowledge on the good or bad ones before I reserve them.

    I have put a PUP in a site in A loop once. I had to "force" it in as there was a 2" landscape timber to get up over.

    A loop is very hit or miss. Some of the sites are definitely tent only. There are 6 or more steps up from the parking spot up to the tent pad.

    I think the site I had was 18. 32-37 are better for pups, but not as many trees. Do not reserve site 9.

    I think I have a pic of the pup in site 18:

    If you look close you can see the landscape timber. I had to "bounce" the pup over it by backing in a lot faster than I usually do.
