Chehaw provides nearly 700 acres of fun, including 100 acres dedicated to Chehaw Wild Animal Park. This AZA-accredited zoo was originally laid out by noted naturalist Jim Fowler of TV's "Wild Kingdom." Chehaw Wild Animal Park features natural habitat exhibits with native and exotic animals, including rhinos, cheetahs, lemurs, servals, alligators and many more. Children will also enjoy a visit to the petting zoo and riding the train. The Parks at Chehaw also feature nature trails, BMX bike racing, campgrounds, RV camping hook-ups with electricity and water at each site, and one of Georgia's largest play parks for kids.
