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.

Great short hike.

Good place to hike even better place to bmx and chill in your hammock

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.

Easy to navigate. Lots of beautiful scenery.

Great fun with my wife and 11 year old son. Good variety of trails from beginner to advanced. Kick Six was a blast! Also enjoyed the Dell trail, which has great wood obstacles. Can't wait to make my next trip down from Atlanta.

needs better marking

Started walking the Falls View Trail with a goal to walk around the lake. Not marked very good and looks like the BMX crowd sort of goes where they want. At one time probably very nice but needs signs and markers replaced. Probably just get torn down by the punks. Very pretty in places, the water was not flowing over the dam but I can imagine that when it does the falls are worth the short walk. Made it around the lake with a side trip to the quarry in about 2.8 miles.
