“For first time campers, yurts are a very un-intimidating way to enjoy the outdoors with many of the comforts of home close at hand,” said Jeanine Jones, spokesperson for Stone Mountain Park in a press release. “Families like the fact that they can more easily manage small children while exploring nature.”
Made of wood and insulated canvas, Stone Mountain Park’s smoke-free yurts are located on a scenic lakeside and feature large windows, skylights, ceiling fans and lockable doors. Each unit offers dedicated parking, a potable water spigot and charcoal grill. Inside, friends and family can relax on comfortable log-style furniture or a private deck with seating overlooking the lake. Heating and air conditioning, lighting and electricity make this a comfortable option for even the most wary campers.
