State Park
Chewacla State Park is a publicly owned recreation area in Auburn, Lee County, Alabama, occupying to the south of Interstate 85. The state park's central feature, 26acre Lake Chewacla, provides opportunities for fishing, swimming, and non-motorized boating.HistoryIn the late nineteenth century, Wright's Mill occupied a site in the park where swimmers could find a place to splash about in the mill's surrounding pool. In the 1930s, workers with the Civilian Conservation Corps developed roads, foot trails, and park buildings. Their efforts can be seen in the park's stone cabins and arched masonry bridge. They also constructed the dam that created Chewacla Lake. The state took possession, opening the grounds as Chewacla State Park, in 1939.Activities and amenitiesIn addition to water activities, the park features a system of trails for hiking and for mountain biking. The park has facilities for RV and tent camping in addition to its renovated CCC–era cabins.

  • We stayed in one of the cabins. I wish I could give five stars, but the cabin was a bit musty. We stayed in the Pet-Free cabin however it smelled like wet dog. The staff could have done a bit more cle...  more »
  • You need to take a hike to understand the title, but the park provides a lot of hiking and the lake and waterfall is lovely. I have visited it several times and every season is enjoyable.  more »

  • Scenery was great, park is very clean. They even have a floating dock with a 12 ft. diving board. Admission price was jacked up this year to $4 a person though. Paddle boats, canoes, and cabins are available to rent. Decent bathrooms, several benches and tables throughout. You can even camp ! Great place all together, I would of given 5 star if the entry/camp fees weren't so expensive, after all.... it is public land being funded by taxpayers.
  • Expensive admission price, no military price. Lots of broken glass pieces on the trails. Beautiful scenery, and quiet even on a busy Saturday in June. Leashed dogs are welcome, but there's no area for them to get water (lake isn't safe because of the seasonal floodong).
  • Best State Park we have ever been to they have cabins, regular campgrounds, primitive campgrounds too. they have swimming they have mountain biking they have hiking they have a diving board they have canoe rentals it is close to town close to stores yet private enough they have a waterfall and it's very clean and well-kept in the people have the best customer service great family atmosphere one of the best hiking areas in all of the United States
  • This is a relaxing place for a hike or stay. You can rent a cabin or bring your tent, it's great for groups, and the grounds are beautiful. (Tip: Bring some soap for the bathroom.)
  • Had a Blast. Very clean and organized sites. Lake is a bit chilly though.
