    I live in the Stone Mountain area of Georgia (East of Atlanta) and was wondering about a safe place to park when I go home. I know about the Petro and Pilot on 285, which is a no no, but are there any places not too far from Stone Mountain that I can park my truck and it still be there when I get back?

    Just get in your car and start driving. Get out when you see a secure lot and Google the business. Call and ask for whoever is in charge, and inquire.

    I park 11 miles from my house at a nice place. $85 a month. Month to month. They auto bill my credit card on the first.

    Just get out there and get busy.

    I was thinking some about this. Its been almost 3 years since I lived in Georgia. However I want to remember places to park just out of Monroe and some very near Lawrenceville. Best solution is to get out in your 4 wheeler and explore your options. Also I'm not trying to hijack this thread by saying this, but good parking places like this are drying up all across the country because of drivers throwing trash out, damaging or destroying infrastructure on the property and lot lizard types there. There was a place near my hometown up in extreme north Georgia that allowed several drivers including myself to park. Today its chained off with no trespassing signs posted. The reason? I'm not 100% sure but I heard the owner got tired of picking up trash and urine bottles. I only bring this up to implore you to be responsible if you find a parking place and not mess it up for others.

    I didn't see the ad on the link above, so maybe they're full, but the old Atlanta TA property off Moreland Ave has been converted into secure parking. Well, secure as you can get in that area LOL.Too lazy to search it any further, so that may be an option.

    +1 on this. That's where I'd look in that area.

    Expect to pay rent for some peace of mind. Especially if it gets you inside a fence where there's more frequent traffic and/or camera coverage. Most small truck terminals will rent space. You just have to find them and ask.

    Most free options will make you a target for theft or towing. IMO not worth the risk.

    Good luck getting in there and if you do, good luck with it being there when you get back.
