Stone Mountain Heights RV Park, May 6 to May 11, 2017

Rating:  3.25 on a scale of 5

Location: This RV park is just a few miles to the main entrance of Stone Mountain Park, the primary attraction in the area that we wanted to visit during our 5-night stay near Atlanta, GA. But it was also only about 15 miles from Atlanta which enabled us to visit the Martin Luther King, Jr., National Historic Site and the High Museum of Art. We did have to make a u-turn to get to the entrance as there is a median dividing the road there. We driving through the QT gas station, so it was not a problem. 

Lot size: We had site #10, a full hook-up, drive through, at the front of the park. There was a large tree on our lot and a picnic table. There was little privacy but this was not a problem for us as we spent most of our time seeing the sites in the area.

The park is, however, quite large, and there were many nice back-in sites available in shaded and sunny sites. Many folks live here seasonally or full time. 

Amenities: The park has wifi, but no cable TV. We were able to pick up many broadcast channels due to our proximity to Atlanta. The laundry room had 6 washers (one large capacity) and 6 dryers, although there was very little space to fold. It was very busy when we did our laundry on a Wednesday, but served our purpose. 

Work was underway while we were at the park to open the pool. 

Cost: $225

Management: The office is closed on the weekend, so when we arrived Saturday around noon our information was in an envelope for us. When the office opened Monday, we paid the balance due and provided pet information (vaccination records and a photo of our dog.) I had called in advance to see if we could have mailed delivered to the park. I was expecting it to be delivered Monday or Tuesday, but it arrived Friday (before we did!) The office held it for us, which we very much appreciated. Overall, everyone here was friendly and helpful.  

General Comments:  This park accommodated our needs, but I did not give it a very high rating because it lacked ambiance and is located in a very busy area. We chose to stay here because the lovely campground at Stone Mountain Park is more costly. If I traveled here for a family vacation though, I would definitely stay at the Park campground.
