“a zoo and campground”

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. Come see what nature’s playground has to offer you! Chehaw’s campgrounds have 44 RV sites with 30 and 50 amp hookups, 14 pull-through sites, a comfort station with laundry, dump station and a group shelter. There are 18 tent sites with 15-amp electric hookups and water. Camper cabins are also available with the comfort of air conditioning. All camp sites have a picnic table and fire ring with flip-top grill for fun gatherings. Fishing is free with park admission. Limit: 5 fish /person Please do not bring in your own firewood. Chehaw's Naturalist Camp Canoe trips were a huge success, so by popular demand we will have several canoe trips available for children between the ages 8-13. Canoe trips will include basic canoe and safety skills, a box lunch and a chance to explore the Muckalee Creek. The trips are $30 per participant and last from 10am - 2pm with a maximum of 16 participants. Our first date is October 20, 2012 and we will have more dates to come in the Spring.

Such a special park in southwest Georgia, especially the African Veldt Ride. And don't miss feeding the two-hump camel.

We stopped as a day stop on our road trip, and it was more than we could even enjoy during our short stop! Great restrooms, covered picnic areas, and lots of family activities. We played disc golf, and this is now in my list of top courses to play with the family. It was well maintained & labeled, and was a good difficultly level with a variety of course obstacles. My son loved the playground and the BMX track, and there was even RC car racing. We definitely plan to keep this stop in future road trip iteneraries!

This is one nicely kept park! When we arrived it was raining and the camp host, Ed, we waiting for us and guided us to our spot. He got out of his vehicle, in the rain, welcomed us, and asked if we needed anything else. I quickly told him we were fine and to get out of the rain! The next it was clear. I looked around the park and everything was very neat and well kept. I don't know who is doing the maintenance here but they do an outstanding job! Stay here and relax. Note: We only used the RV park, I don't know about anything else.

Super friendly staff and nicely kept grounds. Zoo, mountain bike trail, and disc golf course are a nice surprise. Tent camping bathhouse only has one shower for men's and one for women's. Thankfully we stayed on a slow week night. Power, water, and fire ring provided at each site.
