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 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.

This park does have an admission charge per car unlike many Alabama State Parks. They have many hiking trails, a large gathering /picnic area, camping, astronomy, and disc golf. A great visit.
