I visited Chewacla on a Sunday afternoon, wanting to hike and enjoy the spring scenery. Chewacla is a large state park and offers camping, picnic pavilions, hiking and biking trails. I found a beautiful creek and walked several nearby trails. It was a great afternoon and a beautiful place. I can't wait to go back!

We visited the last weekend of April. The weather was perfect and we went to see the 'falls.' It was a beautiful, little 'hike' to the falls. Definitely wear shoes that have good soles! The rocks are slippery. Beautiful area and definitely worth an hour or so of your time. At $4/adult it ended up being a great, cheap afternoon.

Hiked Chewacla this morning ... very pretty and peaceful. Not sure how it gets in the summer, but it was 70 degrees (perfect!) today and we saw one other family there - not crowded at all. The waterfall was gorgeous and the lake was serene. Hiking was interesting and not boring - trails were rocky and fun!

We hiked to the falls, along a creek, and around the lake. Others were sunning, biking, playing frisbee, etc., but there is enough room for everyone. Great day.

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.
