Day-Use Area:
7 a.m until sundown

Nestled at the foot of Cheaha Mountain, you will find Lake Cheaha. Hand dug by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps), this six-acre lake offers some of the best recreational bass and bluegill fishing in the immediate area. Located three miles from the Mountain-Top Resort, and across the street from the lower campgrounds, families can enjoy picnicking, fishing, sunning, swimming, and paddle boats*. A day-use admission is charged and taken by an on-duty attendant on Saturdays and Sundays during the spring, summer, and fall seasons.  Honor box systems are in effect during the winter. Overnight guests may fish and access all of the Lake’s amenities at no charge.  However, Alabama Law does require that all eligible anglers sixteen years of age and older, have in their possession a valid State of Alabama Fishing License. These may be purchased at the Park's Country Store on the Mountain-Top or online. Other area fishing attractions include: Lake Chinnabee, located just few miles outside of the park, Clay County Lake, located one mile west of Delta, AL on State Lake Road, several creeks and streams and more. For more information, contact the Cheaha State Park Country Store at 1-800-610-5801 or locally at (256) 488-5111.

Due to the size of our lake, we only allow hand launched boats and electric motors.

*Paddle Boats are available for rental between Memorial Day & Labor Day. (Weekends Only)

*Jon Boat is currently NOT AVAILABLE FOR RENTAL.
