Come join us for a paddle around Stone Mountain Lake.  We will begin by paddling clockwise around the perimeter of the lake.  We will paddle to a small waterfall, continue under the wooden bridge, and glide past the grist mill.  Then, we will head over to the 732-bell Carillon and the old paddle wheel boat, where we will stop for approximately 15 minutes to have our snacks.   After our snacks, we will continue around the lake and explore a small cove on our way back to the boat ramp.

This paddle is suitable for beginners, but remember that it is flat water, so consistent paddling will be required.  

Here is a map indicating the approximate route we plan to paddle.


Required Items to Bring:

Kayak or Canoe






Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.






How to Get There:
Event Directions:

Enter Stone Mountain Park at the Main Entrance from Exit 8 off of US 78 E.  

Once you have gone through the main entrance, take the immediate left onto Stonewall Jackson Drive.  

Follow this around by the campground and across the dam. You will be on this road for a couple of miles.

Once you cross the dam, take the first immediate right into the Boat Ramp Car Park. If you come to the Marriott entrance, you have gone too far.
