Online reservations available

All Improved campsites have water, sewer, and electrical hook-ups. They also have a picnic table and grill. Please do not leave campfires unattended.
Cheaha has two improved campgrounds, with a total of 72 sites available. Improved Campsites have 20, 30, and 50 amp electrical hook-ups. The Improved Campgrounds received new bathhouses November 2014.


  • Our Campgrounds are site specific.  Once your campsite is assigned, that is your campsite.  
  • We have a few "First come, first serve" sites, but if you set up on a site specific site that is not assigned to you, you will be asked to move.
  • Place registration card on clip and in your vehicle as you occupy the site for security use.

Please help us in choosing which site will accommodate you the best by letting us know what type of unit, as well as the unit size you have when you make your reservation. If you make an online reservation please note this on your reservation.
We have improved sites for tent camping, and reserve larger sites for larger camping units. 

We strive to assign our guests the campsite & campground preferred, but we cannot guarantee a specific campsite, unless it is a site specific campsite.
