We like Cheaha because it is not a far drive from Birmingham for a weekend away. We like the deluxe honeymoon cabins, but would prefer they have a king size bed. The hotel does offer kings. The views are pretty on a clear day. Lots of trails to hike. A nice pool for the summer. Cabin sites come with fire... More

We stayed at campground for 5 nights. Great scenery. Bathrooms were clean. So many trails. We camped in a pop-up with our 3 dogs. Took dogs on some trails. Some trails we went alone as some would have been too rough for dogs. Great views of mountains. We hiked to Cheaha Falls and High Falls- you don't want to miss... More

We spent three nights camping at Cheaha, and did some hiking in the park as well as in the Talladega National Forest which is adjacent. Really lovely scenery, and the park boasts the highest point in Alabama, with the views you might expect from such a vantage point. There are also many vestiges of CCC projects that were done at...

The different roads leading to the park are neat, clean and labeled. There are two scenic areas to take photos or just observe their beauty. The trails are easy to climb and the arrival at the highest point, is totally orgasmic.

The trees are beautiful with the changing colors. The trails are great. Make sure you go to bald rock and Pulpit rock. They have amazing views and are not difficult to walk. Walk the bigfoot trail and your kids will like trying to find the bigfoot cutouts along the path. Go inside the tower and the CCC museum. If you... More

As I type this, we are headed somewhere c else to finish our meal. Wafflehouse is better, I promise. 1 hr for a cold poorly seasoned state is disgusting. And there weren't more than 5 small tables of people.

Our visit to the Cheaha Resort State Park in Alabama was one of the most enjoyable and rewarding trips we have ever taken. We stayed in a cabin in the woods. The cabin itself was exceptionally clean and equipped with all the amenities we were looking for. Spa tub , kitchenette , fireplace , outside grill area , outstanding view... More

Wonderful view from the highest point in Alabama. Enjoyed cruising along rt 281, stopping at various overlooks. Especially liked the very well maintained CCC (Cilvil Conservation Corps) tower on top of the mountain! Temperatures are considerable cooler up there, than in Atlanta - so we stopped at the restaurant for a cup of hot tea, and a little sweet something.... More

Drove from Anniston... quick 30 minute drive. Stopped at Museum - the museum woman was very helpful on history of park and how it was built. Kids walked up to top of tower. We then went to Bald Rock and Pulpit trails. Bald Rock had a board walk... very accessible. Pulpit trail with a steep decline and ended with a... More
