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!

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.
