Chewacla State Park in Auburn, Alabama is a wonderful place. It’s open, with plenty of greenery, and has a lake and creeks for various forms of entertainment. Spread over 696 acres, there is something in the state park for everyone to enjoy.

Going Camping?

Chewacla has lovely camp grounds. There are several – there’s an area for tent camping, an area for RVs, and even cabins available. The tent campsites have a fire ring intended for a small campfire and are intended for one tent and one vehicle, suitable for up to four adults. The tents have access to two separate bathhouses. The RV camping area has all the necessary hook ups to make life comfortable. The RV sites also have access to the temperature-controlled bath houses. If camping (or even glamping) isn’t your style, there are also cabins. The cabins were originally built in the 1930s, but they’ve been renovated to include all modern appliances. The cabins are a little slice of luxury in the woods. If cabins and tenting both aren’t your style, you can also stay at a hotel near the park. The Collegiate Hotel at Auburn is a brand new hotel that is less than 4 miles away from the park.

Fishing and Hiking 

One of the great things about state parks is getting away from it all. One of the best ways to do that (and to enjoy the natural beauty of this park) is to go hiking. There are at least half a dozen trails in the state park. Some cross streams, but all of them boast the natural beauty of the park. Or, if you’d rather have some quiet time, Chewacla Lake covers 26 acres of the state park, and fishing is allowed. The lake has an abundance of crappie, largemouth bass, as well as several species of sunfish and catfish. The lake is a scenic, relaxing place to fish for a while, or even just soak up some sun.

Or Nothing At All

Chewacla State Park is also a wonderful place to just relax. There are picnic areas, open spaces, plenty of idyllic scenery, and lots of sunshine (during the right time of year). There are plenty of opportunities to just sit and enjoy the sunshine, read a book, take a nap.

Chewacla State Park has something for everyone to enjoy. No matter what you enjoy doing, there is some way for you to enjoy the park. With plenty of places to stay in and around the park, there’s no better time to investigate.
