The carving is awesome. It is truly a work of art and the story of why it is there and the rigors of completing construction is interesting. There is no attempt to glorify the men in the carving and the light show has Gen. Lee...More

While Stone Mountain was impressive and fascinating, the carving was disappointing - in contrast to the size of the mountain - and hard to see any details. While the artistic work may have been outstanding, the choice of subjects was depressing, idolizing men who promoted...More

We came to Stone Mountain to see the carving, and we were able to do that, albeit from a distance and through scaffolding. Nowhere on the web site did it say that nothing was open before 10AM, and that the train (and other attractions) don't...More

I visited Stone Mountain with my two boys. We learned quite a bit about the days of the Civil War from reading the various plaques while walking around. The ride up the mountain is a highlight, as well as standing as close to the edge...More

Must have been so beautiful in its natural state and cannot understand why anyone in their right mind would spend so much time,effort and money to create such a carving.

Smaller than you would think lol but a great landmark to visit. The history in the memorial hall was interesting too. Would go again if we could avoid that stupid, price gouging to get into the park with the all attraction passes and $20 parking.

You can view the carving without paying an admission fee. Scaffolding (presumably left over from the laser light show) obscured our view and prevented us from getting good pictures. Free ten-minute video with comfortable seating inside the building. $12.95 fee for adults to go in...More

Great historic attraction! They also have this amazing laser light show every night. We normally bring a blanket to lay on the lawn and a cooler filled with drinks and snacks. Note: during holidays, you may want to come as early as possible because the...More

The park entrance fee and parking fee are the same. You pay to enter the park. I believe it is $10ish (maybe less) per vehicle. Once you are inside all attraction fees are separate and extra.

I believe the entire complex is called memorial park and it is free with park admission. The best place to watch is on the big lawn right in front of the carving. Bring a blanket or lawn chair though
