This park is very shaded and on top of a mountain. There are many bike and walking trails and a nice lookout point to see the city from above. There is also an observatory for watching stars which was open Saturday night. Overall it is a great park, except I kept tripping the 30 amp fuse on the box, and the few sewer sites available are not reservable. I would stay here again. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park. We live nearby and I work in Huntsville so we decided to just camp for a few days while I worked. The sites are large and in a wooded setting. They have taken steps to keep it natural and still provide some conveniences. Nice staff and clean restrooms. Great views just a few steps away. I would recommend to anyone looking for a state park type setting. If you need a pool, clubhouse, internet, etc. this is not for you. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Monte Sano was a beautiful park. Sites were spacious, nice picnic table, fire ring, generally level. Bathrooms were quite nice for a state park. I am however, hooked on my technology and cell service was sporadic and had many dropped calls. Verizon air card in computer rarely got above one bar. If you are a hiker or love bicycling, this is a good place for you. Convenient to Huntsville. Tree cover is dense so no satellite TV either. Very quiet during the week, but on Friday the place filled up and got very busy. We stayed in a water/electric site only. There are only about 10 or 12 sewer sites on each of two loops.

Exceptional State park!! Beautiful views, great trails,the staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. The bath houses were very clean and well stocked. The campsites were level, easy to back into and hookups were easy. Wi-Fi worked in the parking lot only and I had no Mobil phone reception which was OK with me; I was there to get away from it all The drive up the mountain was nice with a hairpin curve or two, but the pull was easy. I recommend this park to anyone who wants to get away and be close to everything with Huntsville just down the hill. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Travel Trailer.

In general the park has the basic requirements has shade trees, clean bathrooms, hiking trails etc. What is missing for a park this size and years of service is no TV and Wi-Fi hookups. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground with friendly staff. Lots of shady campsites which was great for cooling, but not so good if you want to use a satellite dish. Got local channels with RV antenna. Would stay here again. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Had been here once before to visit a friend camping here and vowed to return. Spent the night of the super moon on top of the mountain and had a terrific time. Great spot, very level, easy hook ups and lots of nature. I hiked about 3 miles this morning before we left and really loved the trails. Great place! We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Motorhome.

Did not expect to find such a beautiful state park in the city. Wish we could have stayed more than two days. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park is very nice with several hiking trails and some incredible views. Most sites are level with gravel pads. Getting up to the park can be a little rough if you have a large RV. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful wooded park, but it is in the woods. There appeared to be little "maintenance of the grounds" in and around the RV sites. I also had difficulty finding a site that did not have damaged electrical outlets (many of them looked quite old). The sites are also 'paved' with tiny gravel, which can be problematic in keeping your rig's floors clean. There is a small playground in the RV park, and a really nice one inside the park itself. Note: There is an "entrance fee" to get into Monte Sano State Park, but they wave the fee if you tell them you are going to the the RV park. Overall, a very peaceful stay. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Motorhome.

We were pleased with the ease of accessibility to this camp and the level sites. It is an older park, and many of the sites do not have sewer, but they have two flush-out spots. The hiking was great and the area in general was beautiful. It's very family friendly with lots of young families riding bikes throughout the campground. We had good cell service and local TV reception. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fourth stay here - did not have reservation but volunteer was very helpful in getting us in and assigning us a site. We were able to get Directv on our site. Quiet, nice walking trails, great views from the overlooks. Bathrooms heated which was a bonus! We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely park on top of a mountain. We chose to stay here because the other choices in Huntsville did not appeal to us. It is not easy to get to and would not work for just overnight. We had a large pull through. We did not get to enjoy the views or the park itself because it rained the entire time we were here. We would return when visiting Huntsville again. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Motorhome.

One of the few state campgrounds that can take a big rig (45'). Very quiet. Many trees so satellite TV is not available. Very convenient to Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail - Hampton Cove course. Can pay day by day so no commitment necessary. Also nice to have 50 amps, water and sewer although they won't take reservations for those campsites, but they will for sites with just W&E. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Motorhome.

I was very disappointed in this campground. It was difficult to locate, the roads in the immediate campground were in deplorable condition. Sites are gravel but fairly level. The area around the water faucet needed gravel and was very muddy. Would not stay in this area again. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Travel Trailer.
