Where are we going today?

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.

    We've had ou r family reunion here for as long as I can remember. There has not been any swimming in the lake for quite some time. There used to be an extremely large duck and geese population that made it difficult to swim in the lake so they stopped allowing people to swim in the lake. It is pretty rural but quiet and beautiful. Amenities are next to nil and no cell service. They have wifi for the office but not very accessible.

    We were led to believe you could swim in the lake, but that's not the case, really. Nowhere to get close enough due to reeds and grass. The pool is small but has a neat kiddie pool. Pool is $3 adult and $2 kids. Very rural. Has camping, but we didn't camp. Nice playground.
