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, paddle boats for rent, and you can also fish for bass, catfish, bream and crappie. Entrance is $2 (weekdays) and $3 (weekends) for adults and $1 for seniors and children 6 to 11. There are also 4 group pavilions in the park if you are going there with a large group. They cost from $50 to $100.

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.

For more information see my Chewacla State Park Page.

    Looks like a walk I would enjoy doing.

      This is a pretty walk and as long as you watch your footing, not too difficult.
