Experience the Wonder

Fun For All

A small part of you is still 9 years old. And fascinated by butterflies.

On Grandfather Mountain, you become part of a wonder-filled community that invites you to seek out salamanders, become king (or queen) of the boulder, or throw a Frisbee. Never before have you felt so eager to run and play, or had such a perfect place for it. With rocky outcroppings and fragile forest hideaways to explore, it’s easy to tap your inner adventurer. Come find an adventure that’s just your size, at just your pace.

  • I visited Grandfather Mountain with my 3 daughters. We had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly. The young man who was providing enrichment for the animals was especially knowledgeable and patient as my children asked lots of questions. My daughter asked to adopt "Jane" as a result of our visit and the information she received. Grandfather is a beautiful place and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
