THE LILLS CHEAHA STATE PARK ALABAMA TRAVEL VIDEO

by | The Lills, Travel

Our first stop on our cross-country journey from South Carolina was to the highest point in Alabama, also known as Cheaha State Park, with an elevation of 2,407 feet. Our VW bus, Moksha, took his time lugging us, our pup and our cargo. We later found out that 20 mph is a good uphill speed in the mountains of Alabama. Once we reached the park, we were given a choice of where to stay for the night. Cheaha State Park offers beautiful cabins, rooms at the resort with a mountain view, RV spots in the upper camp grounds, semi-primitive camp grounds and primitive campgrounds.

We spent part of the day at the primitive campgrounds, had a bite to eat over a wood fire, swam and jumped into their stunning lake, surrounded by mountains. Even our pup, Sunday, enjoyed getting refreshed in the cool water. You won’t believe it by the video, but she used to always be hesitant (like a cat) going into water. This time, she was invigorated. We walked up a beautiful stone observation tower, took in some more views of Cheaha State Park and headed to the semi-primitive campground at the top of the mountain. There, we popped the top of the bus, enjoyed a bite and surrounded ourselves in nature.

That evening we met a group from Shreveport, Louisiana and they gave our pup, Sunday, a yummy snack. All of the kids really loved geting to pet her and she just lit up with excitement. When the sun began to fall, they headed out and everything became calm. The deer even came out from the woods and joined us for the evening. In the morning, we headed to the trail that led to Bald Rock (also known as the Sleeping Giant). It was the prettiest view we found at the State Park, a destination we recommend to all!
