Best Mountain Views in Alabama

The fall foliage is unsurpassed. Veterans Day is the best time to visit. The fall colors are better here than anywhere. The campground on the mountain has a constant gentle breeze. One of my favorites. No Wi-Fi or cell phone coverage.

Okay. Out of the way

Shower facilities are separate /individual buildings - not all together in one bathhouse. This made it difficult with children who needed help. No paths to bath house or restrooms so you have to walk through other people’s camp sites. Entire area over run with poison Ivy- be careful!

  • great big picnic tables
  • fire was very hard to start because of standing water in fire pit.

Very clean with stunning views

We stayed in the upper campgrounds at site 66, which was just a short walk from the pool and restaurant. Be careful walking back from watching the sunset at the overlook, it's easy to get turned around. The site was on an incline, so we basically tent surfed all night. 

The sunset AND moon rise…

  • This was in the middle of the wildfires out west summer 2021, and the smoke made it all the way to Cheaha.
  • Moonrise from the empty campsite across the trail from us.
  • Watching the sunset at the overlook.
