It sounds funny I know, but there are some "Mountains" in Alabama, It is an easy drive to the top, and the CCC built a great tower that has endured the neglect of the State of Alabama, (no rest rooms though), It was late afternoon and we decided to stay in the Hotel. It is very tired and needs some...

Thank you so much for your review. Yes, the beautiful view from Alabama's Highest Point and spectacular sunsets draw first time visitors and returning guests from all over to Cheaha. However, we are not satisfied with the current state of the "man made" amenities and we are already underway in making needed repairs and improvements to the restaurant, lodging, and...

We stopped by Cheaha State Park in October of 2016, and it was the first time I have ever been there. The road going up the mountain is pretty steep and curvy, so go slow. We did not stay at the resort- so this is more of a review for the state park itself. We had to pay to get...

Easy to find but I was a little confused about where to go to actually see the highest point in Alabama. You have to pay a small fee to get through the gate and the high point is just a mile or so up the way. Didn't stay overnight or try the restaurant.

Thank you very much for visiting Cheaha! I will forward your suggestion to our district superintendent that better signage is needed to direct guests to the highest point.

I understand that all state parks are struggling with funding but Cheaha really needs some upkeep done soon. First, the restaurant was dirty and the buffet was horrible. The service was lousy but the poor kid was only 17 and didn't have a clue how to wait tables. It appeared that they may be using a lot of teenage help...

Tuthfairy5: I am very sorry your visit to Cheaha was far, far less than what was expected. The conditions you observed and reported are not in keeping with our normal high standards for maintenance, repair, and operations, despite the fact we have experienced serious budget issues the past several years. However, I am happy to tell you that since Amendment...

While I cant say what the inside of the hotel or the cabins are like as I've only camped here I will say that this park has always been beautiful. The past few years have seen a decline in the condition of the grounds and general upkeep of things but I feel that may more from lack of funds than...

Teasha thank for visiting beautiful Cheaha State Park. It is indeed one of our crown jewels. And, we are happy to say that improvements to the park are coming this year!

First, the good. The trails in and around Cheaha State Park absolutely live up to their billing. Beautiful, thrilling vistas and overlooks. Fun and challenging trails. A good, all-around wilderness/outdoors experience. From the handicap accessible boardwalk at Bald Rock to the more challenging Chinnabee Silent Trail, there is something here for everyone. So, the natural attractions are certainly worth the...

I am very sorry to read of your terrible experience at Cheaha. I do appreciate your candid details, they will be helpful to us as we address these issues. Because Alabama citizens overwhelmingly passed Amendment 2, we are able to devote more funds to upgrading and renovating our parks, Cheaha included. In the meantime, though, there is no excuse for...

Our children booked a family gathering for a "significant" wedding anniversary the weekend after Thanksgiving. We had two of the four-person cabins on a glorious weekend full of Fall color. We had read some of the previous reviews and were concerned, but that concern was unjustified. Check-in staff were friendly and helpful. Cabins were clean with rustic charm. (You are...

Thank you for visiting us! I appreciate your detailed comments - we have plans to upgrade Cheaha's restaurant operation in the very near future. We look forward to you coming back in the Spring!

Just turn around. Complete waste of time and money. Took 1 hr for food. Salad bar was disgusting and no selection. Food was no better than waffle house. Went here for 1 yr anniversary. I've had better service & food at Applebee's. Not a great value. My poor husband. He is so simple, never fusses. Even he said the place...

We stayed at the campground for a week in our RV. The bathrooms were brand new and kept clean. There was a drought so water was limited. There is no natural water source on the mountain so they tank water into the park. We did not receive a warning that the water would run out. All of the sudden water...

While traveling from Atlanta to Birmingham, we decided to spend the night in the hotel. The room was clean and adequate, nothing fancy. The restaurant service for dinner and breakfast was good- service excellent as few customers, and the food reasonably priced. We drove the area to the lake and the cabin areas and memories of hikes and swimming rebound....
