Campground Details

Tucked away among the hills on the southeastern edge of the state lies Moncove Lake State Park. Located in the pastoral setting of Monroe County, Moncove Lake State Park seems worlds away from everyday realities. With all park facilities located within easy walking distance, this is the place to enjoy the simple things in life.

Local groups and individuals have been using the park for years as a location for social outdoor gatherings, a place to do some quiet reading, take a stroll, or to put a fishing line in the water. In more recent years, campers have discovered the quiet, easy-paced life in this area and have been returning on a regular basis. Even during the busier summer months lazy afternoons are commonplace and a moments rest is only a sunset away. However, for your best chance at total quiet and solitude the spring and fall seasons present the best opportunities.

Moncove Lake contains 250 acres designated as a state park as well as an adjoining 500 acre Wildlife Management Area and 144 acre lake. Originally created in 1960, the Moncove Lake area was managed as Moncove Lake Hunting and Fishing Area until 1990, when 250 acres was set aside as a state park. The remainder of the land continues to be managed as a Wildlife Management Area.

For those who prefer outdoor activities, Moncove Lake and the surrounding area provide ample opportunities for fishing, hunting, boating, swimming, birdwatching, and hiking. Refer to our Recreation page for more information on these activities.

Our campground features 25 sites with electric hook-ups and 23 non-electric sites. There are two bathhouses, both equipped with flush toilets and hot water showers. All sites are suitable for either tent or trailer and feature picnic tables and grills. A dump station and centrally located sources of water are available for camping units. Firewood and ice are available for purchase. Pet dogs and cats are welcome as long as they are kept on a leash and remain quiet. There are no reservable campsites at the park. All sites are available on a first-come first-served basis.
