-The Mountain Store will allow 10 guests inside at a time and has 6’ markings on floor to help maintain Social Distancing. There are portable restroom units and a handwashing station in the Mountain Store parking lot.
The Cheaha mountain store welcomes you as you enter the park. The front desk processes all reservations, check-ins, sells souvenirs, snacks, and cold drinks. If you have any question the staff at the Mountain Store will be happy to answer them. Across the street is a coin-operated laundry. The store is stocked with food and supply items necessary for camping and picnicking. Gift cards are also available, which are redeemable in all 21 Alabama State Park facilities.
