Our family of 7 has been there on numerous occasions. The entry fees, the last time I went was about $15 per adult and $8 per child. That was a little annoying, but with a big family the price will always add up anyway! So we go as early in the morning as possible to get our moneys worth. The actual drive up to grandfathers mountain is very beautiful and peaceful, and once you come in the entrance you realise that this was definitley worth the drive. As you drive deeper in the park there are little camping sites, a gift shop/restaurant and a little mini zoo. The view from the parking lots are just absolutely breath taking...you have to take your kids and let them experience this. You can then walk up the steps, or take the elevator to get to the mile high swinging bridge. It's great fun for the whole family to walk across the bridge. We usually video and take pics while walking across. Be warned, on the other side you will see crazy people walking on the rocks...where they shouldn't be, as there is no guard rails. Just be cognisant of that and be careful! A cost effective must see and do! And easy to get to...I'm in gastonia/charlotte nc area and just 2 and a half hours away. Great for day trips too!
