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!

My family lives in Auburn and we enjoying hiking at Chewacla when it is cool. The hardwoods and streams are my favorite. The waterfall is fun but the lake not so much. Don't know much about the camping since I only live five minutes away. Not much money being put into state parks in Alabama so expect it to look... More

This a typical State owned park. Beautiful natural setting but is in serious need of upgrade . Staff was very pleasant and helpful . Lake and waterfall is the drawing card and it's worth the time and effort to see this part of the park. RV campground needs some serious work.

We spent five days camping at Chewacla State Park and loved it so much, we're ready to make another trip! The campsites are large and private with lots of hardwood trees growing all around for shade. Some of the pull-through sites are a little more in the open, but we had a back-in site and it was awesome! Each site... More

Great place for a day hike, bike ride, or just to hang out in a hammock. The waterfall is very pretty. There are lots of rocks to climb around on. This park is only a few minutes from Auburn University. It's within biking distance for students. Definitely worth seeing for a day or two if you are in the area.

I work in Auburn from time-to-time. I also drive on I-85 pretty frequently. Chewacla Falls is a great place to stretch you legs for couple of hours. I will sometimes stop here before or after visiting a construction project. The falls are beautiful, and there are numerous cascades as the creek tumbles down the rocks to the valley below.
