Talladega Weekend and Cheaha
A few years ago B.H. (before hammock), my family and I looked into camping up at Cheaha, coincidentally on Talledega weekend. We found out that the cabins, hotel and campground at Cheaha State park book full nearly as far in advance as can be booked. I would expect this to be one of the busiest weekends at the park. I can't say how that may affect you and on the trail. The population of the area may swell, but they may be less likely to go where you are.
Y'all have fun. I want to hear all about it.
