Chewacla State Park's 696 scenic acres are a delightful pause from nearby interstate traffic. Facilities include a 26-acre lake, swimming area, playgrounds, hiking trails, a modern campground, picnic areas with tables, grills and shelters, and newly renovated cabins. Nearby Auburn University makes Chewacla the perfect place to stay on football weekends.

Beautiful trail, very enjoyable hike. Please note - trail loop as shown on this app is NOT possible with high water. We had to back track, luckily found a bridge to cross, and then crossed again through the creek at a low and slow part, to return to the trailhead. The loop shown assumes you can cross where the falls meet the creek / river. Water too fast for that. Might save a couple new to the area hikers from a similar predicament, with daylight quickly running out. ;)

Had a great time hiking this trail! Beautiful water if you go down the rocks near the waterfall

I loved this hike! I wish I lived nearby because I'd come to this park everyday if I could! It's so serene and the trail is beautifully shaded. Great for my pups too!

Numerous trails. Some are 10 mile trails. Beautiful scenery

A really nice route following much of the boundary trails of Chewacla. This 5.5 mile trail run/hike took me along streams, waterfalls and nice rolling terrain.

More adventures in Chewacla - lots of really good options.

More nice trails at Chewacla!

Great spot to hike. Lots of shoreline to explore. Wild life is active in the area so keep a look out. Water falls are beautiful. Reminder you do share the trails with mountain bikes in some areas.

Plenty of challenging trail options in Chewacla! (although All Trails doesn't show them) Nice streams, water falls, wildlife to be spotted and some rocky-rooty portions to keep you stepping high!

We had to evacuate because of hurricane Irma. Never been to Auburn and we never really would've thought to come here. We were so surprised by the beauty and fell in love! We are now Auburn fans and can't wait to take a true vacation here!

Beautiful park, nice trails for mountain biking--poorly marked for hiking. When there is a lot of water, there is no passage below the falls, so a loop as depicted on All Trails is not always possible.

This little park is great for a weekend trip. Whether you're interested in mountainbiking, hiking, swimming or hanging out with friends, this park has it all. The waterfall makes for a great place to relax, but if you're looking to get away from the crowd, follow the trails to the east and hike along the creek. Toward the back of the park, there are some large boulder/rock ponds with little micro beaches perfect for setting up a hammock and making a campfire. Summer is definitely the best time to go as the park will be much more vacant as the majority of the college students will be gone for the summer.

I love Chewacla because it feels like you are way out of town, but it's just a quick 10 minute drive from our house. It's a great place to take the dogs. Its also a great place for us to break in our hiking boots for future backpacking adventures. We love spending the day out here.
