In Alabama’s Black Prairie Belt, Chilatchee Creek Campground offers excellent fishing for bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish. The park also provides good bow hunting opportunities for whitetail deer and wild turkey. Numerous fishing tournaments and annual festivals are held in the immediate area. In addition to this, the park is an outstanding location for wildlife watching, including birds. It is a featured site on the Alabama Birding Trail.
Chilatchee Creek Park and Campground sits adjacent to the 27-mile-long Dannelly Reservoir. The woods are a pine-oak mix of varying densities. The central part of the park is largely open, mature canopy with a grassy understory, while the periphery of the park is all-ages, with dense under- and mid-stories.
