It’s been close to a year since the Winter Ice Storm of 2014 hit part of Cheaha State Park. Ice and snow caused power poles and trees to fall in early February of that year.
It took crews days to get inside to start the cleanup. Part of the park was able to reopen a week later, including the store. But, the park had to close the upper campground and many trails to the public. But, oh…What a difference a year makes…Park Superintendent Tammy Power says that because of the volunteers who helped to restore the park and the funding from legislation…the park is in better condition and is still a place people come to enjoy. The park is Alabama’s highest point and is part of a self-funded state park system.
