Campers are welcome and can enjoy the beautiful Monte Sano State Park, campsites, and cabins! Monte Sano State Park is a publicly owned recreation area and mountaintop retreat encompassing 2,140 acres on the eastern portion of the top and slopes of the Monte Sano Mountain on the east side of Huntsville, Alabama. The campground is about 12 minutes from the Embassy Suites and convention. 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. 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.
Reserve your site today. Rumor has it, they’re filling up fast.
