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.

Chehaw is a great place for a family outing. Have a picnic with family and friends, or get a pavilion and have a family reunion. The playground for kids is great. The zoo is fun and relaxing.

Chehaw is ok for small kids... they don't have as many animals as they use to. Lots of camping sites available. They do a good Christmas Light show all kids will enjoy.More

This is a great example of south Georgia's landscape. Great for family reunions and picnics. Great trails for riding/walking.

Lots to do and see. Very educational. A little pricey though. The price does not allow for those who have little income to come visit such a great place.
