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.

  • My wife and I along with our daughter, son in law and grand daughter recently visited the mountains and one of the highlights was our trip the Grandfather Mt. The reason it was great was because everything is handicap accessible.  My wife is wheelchair bound and we were able to include her in everything even the bridge. She was so happy because she was able to tell everyone the story of the first time she ever walked across the bridge and how it was made of wood. The animal park was the best and the highlight for our grand daughter. We were on vacation for a week and the trip to Grandfather was the last day and we truly saved the best for last. Thank you for all you do to make this State Treasure open to all.
