Beautiful state park with lots of people but never felt crowded. I went for a nice 5 mile run/hike through the south and north plateau trails. Would definitely go again. The red buds and daffodils are blooming but not much else. I hear it’s much...More

Just drove through this state park and plan to bring our RV here soon. There are only about 19 sites that have full services, but the price is right, there is a great lodge, and the view and hiking trails look amazing.

We have been here several times, they have very nice pavilions for a group of people to enjoy, there is a great place for the kids to run and play.

We really enjoy camping at Monte Sano State Park. It's quiet and has some great hiking trails. Unfortunately there's not any lakes or ponds to fish in.
