Summer Series ~ Stone Mountain Park #Yurts and SMP giveaway!

If you live in or near Atlanta, you know that Stone Mountain Park is the ultimate summer family fun destination.  They have everything you could think of to enjoy a summer day (or two!)  There's golf, mini golf, the new Georgia Justice Wild West Train Show, a 4D movie theater, Geyser Towers, SkyHike, the Great Barn, plus great shopping.  Ride the Ducks, then visit The Antebellum Plantation & Farmyard for a glimpse back in time.  You can even climb the mountain for a great workout!  After all that fun, find a spot on the lawn or reserve your Terrace seating to enjoy the Lasershow Spectacular in Mountainvision for lights, flames, fireworks, and great music!   See what I mean about SMP being the perfect destination?  This summer, Stone Mountain Park has added something really unique that families will absolutely LOVE.....Yurts!!

I'm excited to share these unique campground accomodations with you.  There are three yurts available, and they are booking up quickly.  So if you like what you see here, you will want to reserve
yours now so you can enjoy a night or two at Stone Mountain Park this Fall.

Yurts are round dwellings with a latticework support system inside, providing strength and shelter against the elements.  Stone Mountain Park's yurts are a very nice alternative to tent camping and provide comforts of home at a very reasonable price!  They have electricity, air conditioning and heat, a ceiling fan, beautiful log furniture, and room for the entire family!

I can see my son and I setting up a game of Life or Scrabble on this table! This yurt is the perfect place for
 reconnecting with your family after a busy week!

There is a bunk bed with a futon underneath, plus a log bed for mom and dad. (You provide your own linens or sleeping bags).   These yurts sleep up to five people.

Open the back door and you've got an amazing lake view, plus a gorgeous deck with a picnic table.

Each yurt has its own fire pit, charcoal grill, and water spigot.  Make a delicious grilled dinner, then enjoy s'mores around the fire pit at your new favorite home away from home!

The yurts are bright and airy during the day, with large windows and a sky light.

At night, open the screened window's covers so you can fall asleep with a cool breeze from the lake.

If you are like me, and camping in a tent is not your idea of fun, you'll enjoy camping/glamping in a yurt! It's so much nicer and you get some of those luxuries we're used to (like electricity for charging your phone and a comfy bed). You can see more pics and information about the Yurts on the Park's website here.

Book your stay in one of these fabulous new SMP Yurts by calling 1-800-385-9807.

Stone Mountain Park invited us to come tour the Yurts and hosted us at the park and Laser Show that evening, in exchange for my review. All opinions here are my own.  SMP is also providing the tickets for my winner.  No other compensation was received.


  1. How neat! I've been curious about the yurts. A nice way to enjoy family time and all the fun stuff Stone Mountain has to offer.

  2. I love to camp by a small stream that the kids can play in.

  3. I've never been in a yurt, but it looks like it would be accommodating. I like the top with the ceiling fan. I've never been camping before using a tent. We have stayed in a cabin before.

  4. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of tents! I do like cabins though and think it'd be nice to stay in a yurt! :)

    One of our favorite things to do at Stone Mountain is ride the train!

  5. we love the train ride!!

  6. We are gonna be staying in some in Virginia in November, they look soo cool. I am excited they have some closer to home we will have to check them out.

  7. My favorite thing to do is to watch the Laser Light Show with the Music.

  8. I haven't done it in a long time, but the Train Ride was a lot of fun. I've heard it's still a blast.

  9. My favorite thing to do at Stone Mountain is to ride the train around the base of the mountain. I just love to relax and enjoy the scenery.

  10. I would love to stay in a yurt one time. I have actually had this on my personal bucket list for awhile.

  11. My family loves the 4-D theater.

  12. My family has gone to Stone Moutain during Christmas and they love to watch the Christmas Carolers.

  13. My family loves to walk up the trail to the top of Stone Mountain.

  14. I love how Stone Mountain has many festivals throughout the year, like the Daisy Festival.

  15. We love to watch how to make different items watching the Glass Blower make things.

  16. My family also likes to walk around the Stone Mountain shops (stores and restaurants) and look at all the cool things to look at.

  17. Although my family has been on the train before, I've heard that the train ride has been revamped and is loads of fun. Also, the Ducks is supposed to be fun as well.
