Driving here from Columbus, MS was great. A short drive and we arrived and made the summit very easily. We were kinda unimpressed by the views the overly elaborate tower offered but we got our picture. Also, we found a curious marker set in a large rock between the tower building and the radio towers to the left. We took a picture there of it. We then proceeded to find a place to camp for the night. We stayed at the campground just down the road from the summit after discovering that the primitive campground below, really mean primitive. We went for a nice bike ride about 8 miles round trip starting from 4 miles down the road from the summit. It was great to actually ride up a Mountain (and we did it again 2 days later in TN). Plus the ride down to the car was totally sweet. The park is a great place to hike and boulder around. We will return sometime and spend more than a night in Cheaha State Park.
