In an effort to help our community and park guests stay healthy, Cheaha playgrounds, museum and Bunker Tower will not be open to the public. We will re-evaluate around April 6th. With such a dynamic situation, this could change so keep checking back.
We are continuing to monitor statements/recommendations from government organizations including the Alabama Department of Public Health regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) closely and will open these treasured spaces once we feel it is appropriate to do so. We apologize for the inconvenience but the health of our guests, staff, and community are our top priority.

About the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum

The C.C.C. Museum is located in Bunker Tower, Alabama's highest point. Our museum houses a collection of numerous items used by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The entrance fee to the park covers your visit to the C.C.C. Museum. Company 465, Co 468, and CO 2420 worked to build Cheaha State Park. Some of their work included creating a dam for Cheaha Lake, filling the lake, building cabins, building the Observation Tower, building the Bald Rock Lodge, building pavilions, building the lake bathhouse, and re-planted the park with trees.
