“Great park”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Monte sano state park is 2500 acres of wooded quiet within the city limits of Huntsville Alabama. The campground has about 80 hook-up sites and a dozen big primitive sites suitable for scout groups, etc. All sites are large and shady. Bath houses have adequate showers, sinks, toilets. There's a small camp store and a laundry. For non-campers, charming quaint cabins with killer views. The only thing to do in this park is walk the miles of forest trails. Just relax and camp! Playground for kids. It is 5 miles from downtown Huntsville.

“Great primitive camping for scouts going to Rocket Center”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Our scout troop stayed at one of the primitive sites while visiting the US Rocket & Space Center. The sites are big, and well-separated. The bath houses were good. Didn't get to spend much time looking around or hiking the park which looked beautiful because it was rainy for our visit.

“Beautiful Day”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

A friend took me up to site see and I enjoyed it very much. It was nice just to be able to sit and look out over the valley and Huntsville. The day was beautiful and very nice weather. There are walking trails, many over looks and picnic tables and grills. We went just so that I could see what was available.
