With over 700 acres of pristine, conservation land and a wild animal park dedicated to education, Chehaw is a unique attraction for South Georgia. Being one of the only two accredited zoos in Georgia, aside from Zoo Atlanta, Chehaw continues to be devoted to the three areas it was founded on: conservation, preservation and education.

From the Wild Animal Park to the endless recreational opportunities, Chehaw has an activity for every visitor. We offer Mountain Bike Trails, an 18 hole disc golf course, a BMX track, a large Play Park, campgrounds, rental facilities, nature trails, a fully stocked catfish pond, summer camps, and MORE! Come see what nature's playground has to offer you.

I loved the zoo. Only paid 7.50$ because I am military. I loved the zoo, the animals are noticeably taken care of. Friendly staff.

We had a wonderful day at Chehaw. There is a zoo at the back of the park. We liked this zoo and the fact the animals were living in a natural environment. This is a small zoo but definitely worth the trip. We were able to feed a rhino, pet goats, walk thru and see all kinds of animals. We... More

Wonderful visit. We got a cold spell so the camp bathrooms were too cold and drafty to shower in but everything else was great. We had the place to ourselves. Sometimes at night, you hear the noises from the zoo animals. There are no grills at the campsite but some of the pavilions have them and if it rains too... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! You were lucky to catch a cool spell before the heat hits! There's nothing like hanging out underneath the stars listening to the red wolves, owls, and lemurs. Hope you'll camp with us again soon! More

I always go to this park with my grandchildren for their Native American Festival. It is awesome! The park is huge and has lots of animal exhibits and parking/camping.

This is actually two parks...the zoo and another area with a great wooden ship playground. Both are great! The zoo is very nice with paved walking trails and a nice collection of animals. Don't miss the gator pond immediately off to the left as you enter.
