CHATTAHOOCHEE STATE PARK
Chattahoochee State Park, located in southeastern Alabama, is a serene natural haven. It features an array of outdoor activities including fishing and boating on its 23-acre lake. The park also offers camping facilities with modern amenities for visitors seeking overnight stays amidst nature's beauty. Its diverse wildlife and scenic trails make it perfect for bird-watching or hiking enthusiasts alike.
Located in southeastern Alabama, this park was established during the Great Depression by Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC built a dam creating a 23-acre lake. It became popular for fishing and boating.
In World War II, it served as an army training ground before returning to public use post-war. In the late 1970s, due to budget constraints and declining visitation rates, its status changed from state park to wildlife management area.
Today managed by Alabama's Department of Conservation & Natural Resources Division of Wildlife & Freshwater Fisheries; it is primarily used for hunting rather than recreational activities.
