Located at the top of Alabama' Highest Point, and surrounded by the Talladega National Forest, Cheaha State Park's Convention Facilities are the perfect place for your escape!

 

Cleburne Room

A stunning view, from the floor to ceiling window, is the perfect backdrop for a reception/social or business meeting (50 people maximum capacity). Catering is easily arranged with this room's location, adjacent to the park's restaurant. 

Al Alexander Activities Building

This building is the perfect place for a convention. Set up Chapel style with pews, and it is perfect for lectures. There are speakers and a piano and organ also available for use.

Picnic Pavilions

Located both on the mountain's top and near the Cheaha Lake  These open-air pavilions are popular for family reunions, birthday parties, informal business retreats, and casual weddings or receptions. The two stone pavilions are complimented by working fireplaces. For rental information email BillieJo.Maxcey@dcnr.alabama.gov or call (256) 488-5885.
