Cheaha State Park

Vista Cliffside Event Center

Cheaha Vista Cliffside

The Vista Restaurant at Cheaha State Park closed in December of 2021, and there are no plans at this time to reopen it as a restaurant.  

We are currently operating the former restaurant as an event venue, Vista Events.  We have had some unforgettable weddings, family reunions, and corporate meetings with a beautiful view from atop Alabama’s highest point.

We do have the Mountain Store that we have stocked with microwavable meals, snacks, candy, and drinks.  For our guests staying with us here at Cheaha, our hotel, cabins and chalets have either refrigerator/microwave combos or full kitchens.  All facilities have grills and picnic tables.  We advise getting groceries before heading up the mountain if you wish to eat onsite, but we also have a list of restaurants located 12-30 minutes outside the park. Please email with questions.

Vista Cliffside Events Center:

The ENTIRE facility, Cleburne Room, or Vista Cliffside Deck is available for private group rentals for weddings, reunions, meetings, or parties. Please contact for pricing and more information.
