“The pinnacle of natural beauty”

Cheaha has a mountain of reasons for you to visit!  Cheaha State Park is the pinnacle of natural beauty and awe in Alabama.  This foothill of the Appalachian Mountains is the highest point in the state.  Standing 2,407 feet above sea level, it is no wonder why the local Creek Indians named this place "Chaha," meaning high place.The park hosts hiking trails, mountain bike trails, a lake for swimming and fishing, an observation tower at the highest point, campgrounds, cabins, chalets, motel rooms, a restaurant, an indian artifact museum, and much more.The park is also completely surrounded by the Talladega National Forest which offers additional recreational resources, like easily accessible trails to waterfalls and more.Day Use Fees:Everyday: $2 for age 6 to AdultsSenior Citizens 62 years of age and older: $1

Awesome park. Super hiking trails - especially with those with handicaps. Upper Campground had great restrooms, new-ish showers and restrooms. Very clean. Big conscience store and lovely restaurant at the top offering breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Very interesting park. The drive up the mountain was beautiful. The day we went it was very windy and cold at the top of the mountain. But you get some excellent views.

We were in the upper loop. The sites and park are very well kept. Staff was super friendly and there are hikes all over. If you were a biker, there’s lots of pedaling to be had too.

Hike up to the tower, go to bald rock and then go to Vista Cliffside for lunch and or a drink.

Amazing park.

You can tell that AL put a fair amount of money into redoing the park and upgrading the sites, roads and bathhouses. We stayed in the Lower Loop which is smaller with easy access to Lake Cheaha (beach, swimming) and hiking trials which take you to some incredible vistas. Upper Campground is larger with more space btwn sites and access to up Bald Rock .
PROS: new bathrooms and showers, level sites, excellent trails with beautiful views nearby and very quiet. We hiked every day and loved the scenery.
CONS: whomever designed the sites probably isn't a camper. Roads are one way so all the pull through sites on the left side have your door opening to the road and very little space for a "living area". There are super bright lights interspersed in the campground (we had one right between our site and the next) with no rhyme or reason so it takes away from the evening ambience. The pull through sites are great if you are camping with friends but not as great if you are solo as they share driveways. No cell or WIFI in the campgrounds but you can get it at the visitor center and lodge so be warned if you are working remotely.
Even with all the cons we really enjoyed our time here and will certainly come back again.

loved hiking here. was very peaceful. Liked being able to just walk to the nearby trails.
our 23 foot ainstream had no issues getting here. Camp store is predictably expensive

Only a one night stay for us as we were passing through towards North Carolina. We were in the lower campground. Signage into there is not very good- we found it and ended up at a closed gate. Turns out you have to check in at the office located at the upper campground. Luckily no on was behind us and we could back out of that sticky situation- be aware if that if you're camping there.

We'd like to return. I think the upper campground may be a bit better, the sites are spread out a bit more.

We stayed five nights in Dec 2022 and due to rain we were only able to make one hike but it was fantastic! Beautiful sites and close to multiple hiking trails, so we put it on our "Must Return" list! We have a T-Mobile hotspot so we had wifi but our phones (Verizon) were useless...no service. Campsites and bathrooms were very clean and the staff at the office/general store were super helpful!

Arrived at around 8pm, registration staff were still around. Locked/coded gates for entry. Incredible hiking trails, very technical and hilly. Beautiful views. We stayed in the upper loop. I had hoped starlink would get me internet but it was pretty spotty, hard to get a clearing from trees. Verizon not great, but between starlink and Verizon with cell booster I was able to stream tv just fine. Had to resort to a skyroam for work internet though, it used T-Mobile which is great here. Full hookups at all sites I think. Not the most secluded sites ever but still very nice, not complaining. Quite a drive to get back to civilization, restaurants, groceries, etc... Staying here a week, late January 2023, looking forward to the peace and quiet.
