Take the time to enjoy the nature of the park, ride your bike, walk, car your choice. I plan on camping next time, we were not prepared this visit, can't wait.

Great park hidden south of town. There are many hiking trails, fishing area, picnicking, swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, mountain biking in a beautiful setting just outside of town and the interstate. The park is used to host many activities, bike races and road races.

I you love the outdoors; getting out in the nice weather of spring or fall or if you are built like a Greek-god as I am and want to show off those pecs in the summer when all the sweeties are out sunbathing, this little secluded park south of the interstate and surrounded (now) by Auburn, is a wonderful place...

This is one of the best parks I have been to in the southeast. There are a ton of hiking and biking trails or you can relax at any of the campgrounds. There is also a beautiful waterfall that is a short hike from the rear parking lot and a lake with a small man-made beach.

First visit back in Feb, 2014. Stayed in a near-by hotel for the weekend. This time we came for 2 days & rented a cabin in the park. Cabin was perfect. Clean, spacious & well stocked. Our interest is hiking the trails & finding geocaches along the way. We managed to find a dozen or so & left a few... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the beauty of this park right off I85 in Auburn. Hiking trails, swimming, stone cabins to rent for about the same as a hotel. Boats for fishing and a campground and picnic area. Staff is mostly volunteers but everyone we encountered was friendly. Park is well kept and clean. Would most definitely recommend you visit.

Spent the day here during the July 4th weekend. Very few people at the beach area. Quiet and peaceful. BBQ pit available for cooking also. Good tree cover to get in the shade. shower houses and restroom is "old-skool", but probably what is on-par in the deep south. Nothing like in Ohio. Plenty of parking close by.

I've been camping and visiting here for years. If it's just for a day trip of hiking to the rocks or swimming, or a week-long camping adventure, you're going to love the amenities at Chewacla. Close to convenient shopping and about 4 miles from the Auburn University Campus. Feels like you're in the middle of nowhere!
