I have two sons that attend Auburn University. We have enjoyed many trips over the years to Chewalca, both camping and in recent years, staying in their wonderful cabins. We have always rented the smaller cabin.

It was a chilly but sunny day so we went to find the falls and hike around. The first path we went down we realized was for mountain biking so that wasn't super fun but it was a good warm up. We used the map and got up to the parking lot and pavilion that has the trail heads to... More

Such an awesome park! Chewacla is perfect for all your favorite outdoor activities from hiking to biking to picnicking. The waterfalls are beautiful and there are nice pavilions that you can rent out for events.

Visited the park with my wife, 2 year old daughter and 9 year old nephew. The climb down to the creek is no sweat even with a baby in arms. The air of course is very fresh. I noticed the park is a mountain bike paradise. At the very entrance you can purchase firewood and charcoal for grilling. There's are... More

A beautiful place to go hiking. My girlfriend and I really enjoy the peaks and adventure. They have different levels fir the trails. The Water Fall trail is our favorite.

We went there for hiking. The trails are largely shared with bicycles. If you are a trail bike enthusiast you will no don't like this park. I am sure we were in the way of the bicyclists and vice verse. The trails are well worn in and clearly marked.

Chewacla is a little jewel in Auburn. Lake, cabins, camping, hiking, but the best thing they have is mountain biking. Various levels of biking from mild to challenging. Be prepared for some fun and a good workout.

Didn't have time to explore all of the park, but did find a few geocaches - pleased to see that the park supports this activity and even mentions it in their guide. The walking trails were good and the rest room facility we used was much better than those typically in a state park. Note that seniors only have to... More

It's a good state park. We camp there often for convenience. The camping spots are a little lacking, but they're decent. There are not many primitive spots, and only a couple of the primitive spots are very desirable. Occasionally we'll take an RV spot, which has a good level area, and a picnic table. However, many of these are crammed... More

An amazing place to camp with the family or spend the day on a walk. Chewacla is an important part of the United States's geologic history and its diverse and beautiful landscape has long been a gathering place for the Auburn community. Don't miss playing on the big rocks next to the fall!
