Enjoying the panorama view from the porch of the CCC built cabin at Monte Sano S.P. returns one to days of simplicity. The clean efficient studio meets basic standards - though the dark interior deters evening reading. The park's trails are well worn and marked...More

Unsure, but the staff is very friendly; if desire later check out simply ask upon checking in - our request for an extra hour has never been turned down at any state park/camping venue.
