Chewacla offers a 26 acre lake fed by Moore's Mill Creek. A man made spillway forms picturesque Chewacla Falls. From the falls, the water converges with Chewacla Creek and flows away from the park. There is no ramp to the water; however, small personal water crafts that can be carried down to the water such as canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards are welcome. Due to the small size of the lake, no boats with gas powered engines are allowed.
The 26 acre lake at Chewacla State Park is open year round for swimmers. It is swim at your own risk; as there are no lifeguards on duty. Inside the roped off area you will find a diving platform with a high dive.
Chewacla Lake is teeming with Largemouth Bass, Crappie, and several species of Catfish and Sunfish. Fishing is allowed with an Alabama Fishing License and guests must follow the general Alabama Fishing Regulations.
