Chattahoochee State Park is a state-owned, public recreation area located in the extreme southeast corner of Alabama operated by the government of Houston County, Alabama. The park occupies 596 acres (241 ha) along Irwin's Mill Creek on the Florida-Alabama border.
In 1818, land near the park was the site of an early skirmish in the First Seminole War. The state park was developed by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps during the 1930s. Their handiwork can be seen in the natural stone dam built to create the 23-acre (9.3 ha) CC Pond and in the dirt roads that wind through the park. Chimneys and other remnants of the camp where CCC workers lived can also be found.
