We (my husband, myself, and our neighbors) camped at Monte Sano on Memorial Day weekend, 2008. We drove about 3 hours from N. Georgia to get here as we were going to the Alabama Jubilee at Point Mallard Park in Decatur, AL. Anyway, the campground is just OK. The camping pads were fairly private but there was LOTS of poison ivy and poison oak, possibly poison sumac as well. It was very close to our campsite..........
For as large as the campground was, there were only two bathhouses, and it is DARK when the sun goes down. Make sure you have your flashlights. The laundry facilities are at the camp store and are only open when the camp store is open (I think that is 8am to 5pm). There is NO WATER for recreational
purposes, i.e., no lake/stream/river/creek/pool to swim or fish at.
There is a really nice playground for the kids, but it is not convenient to the campground. The older kids can ride their bikes there (if they have them) but the little kids would have to be taken by car or set out on about a 1/2-3/4 mile walk to the playground. Not enought sites with full hookup (sewer, water, electric) compared to the # of bath houses available. There is not a whole lot for the adults to do in the campground unless you are a hiker or mountain biker. I was kind of bored. You may not be, though.
