Talladega National Forest | Cheaha State Park

November 26, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I recently travelled through Talladega National Forest while shooting several aerial photography projects in the North Alabama area.  I decided to go back to the summit at Cheaha State Park to stay at the park lodge one evening.  

Nature

Located in the middle of the Talladega National Forest, the park is ideal for access to the Kentuck ORV-ATV Trail. Additionally, the park is home to the Cheaha Trailhead of the Pinhoti Trail, which connects with the Appalachian Trail and accesses the Odum Scout Trail, and the Chinnabee Silent Trail. Here hikers can experience tranquility, native wildlife and beautiful waterfalls.

Dining

Delicious, country-style food combined with panoramic views of the Talladega National Forest and valley below are found at the park’s restaurant. A traditional Sunday buffet is also available.  Catering is available in the park for pavilions and Bald Rock lodge contact our sales staff 256-488-5885 (let us handle the grilling or cooking, so you can enjoy the park!).  

Accommodations

In addition to lodge rooms, cabins and A-frame chalets, we also offer improved camping in the park’s campground, semi-primitive camping near the highest point, and primitive camping near Cheaha Lake.  In addition, there is primitive camping along mountainside trails, offering campers numerous options for getting close to nature.

Weddings

The perfect atmosphere for a wedding, Cheaha Resort State Park staff can provide couples with everything needed for their special day.
