Visitors Center

The entrance station/visitors center to the park is tiny. Stop here to pay the entrance fee and to get the brochure/recommendations for maximizing your enjoyment of the park. The guy that was here when I visited was friendly, knowledgeable and made good reccommendations.

Lake and Swimming Area

The main attraction to the park is the 26 acre lake. It has one stream feeding into it and one coming out of it. There is a nice swimming area and you can also fish for bass, catfish, bream and crappie.

Hiking to the Falls

There are several hiking trails throughout the 696 acre park. The one the ranger recommended, and that I hiked, was the trail to the falls. It was fairly short but steep at times and had rough footing. The falls was kinda nice though. Don't forget the bug repellant.

    Chewacla State Park looks like an excellent spot for a family outing. I bet the lake is cold, but still great for swimming and fishing. Nice little page Jim. Have a great week.

    Ana amazing little place! On a hot summer day, swimming in the lake must be a real pleasure!
