About Monte Sano State Park
Monte Sano State Park began electrical upgrades to our campground on June 1st. While we are excited about these upgrades, we are sorry to report that the timeline of this project will be impacting many existing reservations this Fall. Please call the park at (256) 534-6589 if you have any questions. We will reach out to each individual with reservations on sites effected by email and telephone before moving you to a different site.
The lower loop, sites 1-35, 77, 78A&B, 80, 82, 84, and 85, will be down until at least November.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause and we thank you for your patience as we work to best serve you through these temporary campsite closures.
We are excited to announce that the new online camping reservation system is now live. Feel free to make your reservations by using the new online tool, calling the park office or simply walking in. We encourage advance reservations.
If you experience any issues with the new system, we would appreciate your feedback. Please contact a park directly for urgent issues related to a reservation. Thank you for choosing the Alabama State Parks.
Monte Sano State Park is located near Huntsville in northeast Alabama. In Spanish, Monte Sano means “Mountain of Health.” In the late 1800s, visitors from across the United States came for “the season” to experience and enjoy Monte Sano’s fresh air, spectacular views and mineral springs.
The Monte Sano Lodge offers a serene mountain setting that is ideal for a variety of group functions including business meetings, weddings and family reunions. The facility features a large meeting room, a small meeting room, break room, lobby or pre-function area, restrooms, and a terrace.
Fourteen rustic cabins, 11 of which were built by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC), are perched on the side of the mountain and are equipped with kitchens, fireplaces, separate showers and baths, cable television, outdoor grills, picnic tables, and porches for taking in the amazing sunrises.
The park also features 89 improved campsites, a primitive campground and a camp store.
Monte Sano sits on 2,140 acres with spectacular vistas from atop the mountain, especially when the fall leaves show off their colors. In the spring, native azaleas bloom along the 20 miles of hiking trails and 14 miles of biking trails.
