I lived in Auburn for 4 years and visited Chewacla many times. I love the river and the short hikes to the waterfall. There are lakes on the upper level for swimming, though I enjoyed the waterfall the most. I would hike down and study there. On a hot day, it's perfect. On the weekends, it can be very crowded....

Chewacla is well work a visit when in The Plains. It is a relatively rustic park yet has excellent picnic spots, waterfall view, and short hiking trails. Restrooms are readily available, clean, and well stocked.

Excellent family oriented park. This park has gone to the extremes with off road bike trails; to include wooden BMX Tracks, Bump Tracks, and Single Track trails. Swimming in the lake takes on a new dimension with its floating diving board island. However, the waterfall and large boulders below the lake are picturesque and worth the hike.

I discovered Chewacla a few months after I moved to Auburn from a friend and am so happy I did. There aren't a whole lot of large outdoor options in Auburn however Chewacla has something for pretty much everyone. The waterfall is a short hike from the front gate with a small lake/pond above it for some rec swimming, paddle... More

Soak in the beauty of nature at this amazing state park! Bring the whole family for a picnic in the huge grassy field and then hike to see the awe-inspiring waterfalls. This park is also a great place to take your dogs with plenty of places to walk and swim. If camping is your thing, there is also a great... More

We visited this location for the day to spend sometime outside and get some exercise. It was an ideal choice. The trails in this park are categorized by their level of excursion required. They have some really nice ones for bicycle trail riding that can also be used by hikers. The terrain is treed and has vantage points with scenic... More

I've been here two times and will come again. I just like the view of the lake while reading books (so peaceful especially when the sun goes down!)

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.
