We apologize for the inconvenience:  T-Mobile will be working on the Alabama Public TV Tower during Monday August 2 – Friday August 6, 2021.  The following park areas will be CLOSED:

 

Tower Road, Bunker Tower (Highest Point), CCC Museum, Mike Bosarge Dog Park, Imagination Tree Playground, Bigfoot Pavilion, Redbud Pavilion, Dogwood Pavilion, Upper Primitive Camping Trail,  Leave No Trace Bigfoot Trail, and Heritage Trail. Because there is danger from tower work (high in the sky), we ask that NO GUESTS enter the area. This means no driving, walking, hiking, or cycling on Tower Road or along the two closed trails.

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.
