Monte Sano State Park Campground was a terrific woodsy camping experience for us. Clearance in the park was no problem, good roads, no pesky tree branches, no parked vehicles lining the street. Nestled among the trees, under the tall shady canopy, our 40ft dp fit well into the back-in water and electric site. A campfire ring and a picnic table... More

Beautiful place. We stayed in one of the cabins and it was very nice and peaceful. The trails are some of the best marked we have been on. The cabin was very clean and we had a restful stay. Also, it is close to town if you need groceries but once you get in the park it is very quiet.... More

Amazing....this park is close to Huntsville, easy access to grocery stores and other things. Cabin #1 was at the end of the road and lovely. Screened in porch and all the amenities of a hotel but better! It is quiet, beautiful and restful. The cabin was well equipped, the kitchen had everything we needed, firewood was supplied for the super... More

I am going to start this review by mentioning that the ONLY reason I am giving them a bad rating is because of the roaches. I have a phobia about roaches and Cabin #9 was full of them! We slept with the lights on the whole time and had it not been for the fact that we met family that... More

We spent three nights in Cabin #1 in Monte Damp State Park. Much better than a hotel, nice view, a little old fashioned but very comfortable. Basic cable but a surprisingly good number of tv channels. Only drawback was the variety of insects we found in our bed each morning, ranging from spiders to centipedes. But this is a rustic...

We stayed here while my child was at Space Camp. Cabin #4 doesn't have a screened in porch but a picnic table that was nice to sit out and look at the scenery in the open air. The room had a double and twin bed, shower, microwave, fridge, electric stove, sink, pothholders, utensils and pots and pans and dishwashing liquid.... More

We stayed here a couple of nights while visiting family. The cabin was old & well-used, but relatively clean. We wanted a nice, quiet place to stay--which this was except for the large family staying at the cabin next door. The kids had lots of big wheels and bicycles, so it was a bit loud during the day. That part... More

What a wonderful park! The cabins are what you're to read about though... Small, cozy, wonderful view! Not too close, but close enough you can wave to your neighbor if you see them - and to me, is nice to not be TOO isolated for safety's sake. Went in March, so not much foliage - but can just imagine what... More

My husband and I stayed at one of the cabins (#9) for the weekend while we were attending a hiking conference. Absolutely gorgeous. The cabins are spaced far enough apart that one feels quite secluded. Firewood is provided free the first night and is $10 per bundle thereafter. Our cabin was one-room with a queen bed and a twin bed,... More

At $85/night in season, this is the best deal in Huntsville and a great alternative to the limited service hotels out by the NASA Space Center. These cabins are stone (inside and out) and were built in 1938 by the Civilian Conservation Corp. They are not modern cabins but have some amenities such as cable TV, air conditioning, good cell...
