How to Book

Reservations are required. To make your visit more enjoyable, Grandfather Mountain will limit the number of groups visiting each day. Contact our Group Tour Coordinator at the Grandfather Mountain office at 800-468-7325 or 828-733-2013 or nature@grandfather.com as soon as possible to make sure your preferred date is available. Naturalist programs and habitat tours must be requested at the time of reservation to insure that the dates and times will be available.

You must make reservations (Monday-Friday, 9 am to 5 pm) to receive the group rate.)

Groups pay by cash, check or credit card upon arrival. Purchase Orders are not accepted.

Shuttle Service

Because sharp curves near the top of the mountain restrict commercial motor coaches and some school buses to the lower part of the mountain, Grandfather provides free shuttle service to the top in its own buses. Reservations for the shuttle buses are required.

Motor coaches or buses longer than 28′ are not allowed in the park on weekends. No exceptions will be made.

  • This visit to Grandfather Mountain was clearly worth the drive up to see the beautiful views and the animals in the habitats.  We ate at the restaurant and went to the nature museum also which was nice.  Really enjoyed the drive up.
