Chewacla is off the beaten path, but well worth discovering. The price is reasonable too. The short and easy hike to the falls is fun for all ages and levels of fitness. There are plenty of shady spots for picnics as well.

We visited to kick off our 4th of July weekend with a picnic. The park was nicely shaded, had tons of bike and walking trails. We went to the waterfall to picnic. Wasn't too many flat places to picnic down there but we found a good size boulder to set up on. Not a huge waterfall but beautiful nonetheless. Even... More

This is the place to go for geocaching fun. The caches at this park have had a lot of effort and creativity invested in them. Our daughter loved every minute we were able to search. The puzzle of figuring out how to open them once we found them just added to the enjoyment. Most of the people we dealt with... More

We enjoyed a nice hike to the falls. We really appreciated the low cost of admission - $5 for the 2 of us with a senior discount. People are very friendly on the trail. Downside - what's up with people who leave dirty diapers on the trail?? The water in the lake was very muddy from runoff I guess, but... More

I had not been to Chewacla since I was a college student in the early '90s. Since then, they have added some fantastic mountain biking trails! I was very impressed! The lake area looked a little run down, but there were folks there cooling off from the heat.

A wonderful oasis very close to the Auburn University Campus. I haven't done the bike trail but it looks awesome. The hike to the waterfall is fairly easy and short.

I recently revisited Chewacla after a few years, and aside from the omnipresent mountain bikers, not much has changed. The park is clean and has an abundance of trails for hiking and biking at many levels of intensity. Getting to the bottom of the falls can be a bit tricky and requires some dexterity but is well worth it. This... More

Hike to the falls and you will be glad you did. Bring some food and liquids but don't leave your trash like too many others have done.

The park is beautiful and has hiking and biking trails. The trails go by the lake and waterfalls. There is a great little swimming area where you can also rent paddle boats and canoes, and even a diving board on a wooden 'island'. My kids had a fantastic day and so did we. We started at the Upper Pavilion and... More
