Monte Sano is my breath of fresh air and outdoor therapy. I love running the trails, feeling energized and just enjoying the wonders of nature.

The park is beautiful, well preserved with cabins, horse stables, hiking trails, and a new building that can be reserved for gatherings, weddings, reunions, and other things. There is camping, barbecue pits, picnic tables, and restrooms, water fountains, overlooks, and playground equipment. There is a small fee. Recommend it.

We used the primitive camp site and really enjoyed our weekend. The bathrooms were surprisingly clean!

Great campground, close to 5 points and downtown restaurants. Sites are spaced good and all have fire pits. Only some of the sites have sewer, but the dump sites are convenient.

We popped into the park for a quick look around, just to see what it was all about. It offers stunning overlooks and miles hiking and mountain biking trails. We took a quick hike to the Japanese Tea Garden, which features a quaint pagoda in the middle of the woods. We can't wait to return for a long weekend to... More

Thought the park was all there was when we turned off the main highway. Did not realize there were houses in the area. The lodge was a beautiful setting for a fall wedding.
