About the 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.
