Nestled at the foot of Cheaha Mountain, you will find Lake Cheaha. Hand dug by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps), this six-acre lake offers some of the best recreational bass and bluegill fishing in the immediate area. Located three miles from Cheaha Hotel, and across the street from the lower campgrounds, families can enjoy picnics, fishing, sunning, swimming, and paddle boats. A day-use admission fee is charged to enter the park. (Overnight guests may fish and access all of the lake’s amenities at no charge.) However, Alabama Law requires that all eligible anglers 16 years of age and older have in their possession a valid State of Alabama Fishing License. These may be purchased online.

Other Area Fishing Attractions:

  • Lake Chinnabee, located just few miles outside of the park 
  • Clay County Lake, located one mile west of Delta, AL on State Lake Road

Due to the size of our lake, we only allow hand-launched boats and electric motors.
Paddle Boats are available for rental between Memorial Day & Labor Day.

Our Jon Boat is currently available for rental. All boaters must wear life jackets.
