The Chattahoochee State Park, which is actually located on Irwin’s Mill Creek, has been in operation for over 70 years. The area is an important archaeological site and is well-known for its birding trails. Although the park is about 50 miles south of Eufaula, its diverse landscape is worth the drive.
The four distinct sections of this park are each a must-see for anyone who loves nature. To the left of the main entrance road are hardwood trees and sandy clay; to the right, you’ll find wetlands. Eventually, you’ll run into the lake area and the park’s southwest corner where the campsites and picnic tables are located. A swamp area lies on the left side of a levee road that passes the Alabama-Florida state line. If you want to fish, the fee is $2.00 per person. Only boats with a trolling motor are permitted in the lake.
“Kim is doing a great job getting all cleaned up. Most laid back camp we have ever been at. Loved our stay. Thanks Kim and your husband too.” – Gordon & Karen Ewing, Stateparks.com
