Bald Rock Lodge –The original hotel and restaurant for the park built by CCC Company 2420.  We have the Calhoun and Talladega Chambers of Commerce to thank for the joint effort to get the lodge built and opened in 1942 at 2,100 ft. The lodge is now used for group rentals only.  

This facility is the answer to all your wedding, meeting, and group retreat needs.  The Bald Rock Group Lodge sleeps 32 people in 12 private bedrooms (no tv or phone), each with its own full-service restroom. Private lodge parking can be increased if you wait until after sunset for your event.  The trail parking is not available until the trail closes at sunset. The commercial kitchen, which is completely furnished for all your cooking and dining needs, and the private setting have made this a favorite for many events.  We exchange linens, however, we do not supply housekeeping during your stay.  We do not supply beach or pool towels, we suggest in the summer season you bring your own.  Free swimming at the lake and pool is available to your guests from Memorial Day to Labor day (request a car pass at the store). We require 2 night rental on weekends.
