Chehaw is a well run small park especially great for children. Great animal park as animals are in their environment . Nice little train for,kids to ride through the park.

Went just to get the kids (Ages 4-7) out of the house. Had a blast. Spent time in the zoo and then played in the park. Took a picnic lunch because the park is also nice. As for the zoo, well you get to feed animals that most zoo's charge a fortune for. Plus this zoo has lots on hands... More

I used to work at this zoo, and for such a small town, the zoo is actually really nice. Lots of shaded walkways/bridges through natural settings. The zoo is actually at the back of the park and there is a separate fee for both. The large playground at the park is one of the nicest I have seen, and we... More

Really cool zoo. It is a different experience outside of walking around on hot asphalt trails. This zoo takes you right through the woods on the walking paths and over water on bridges. The staff was awesome and let my kids help feed the Rhino. I have been to tons of zoo's all over America and I'll say this one... More

Even though the weather didn't totally cooperate, our family truly enjoyed this festival. It's a cultural learning experience and I will certainly be attending it again next year. Good the opportunity to visit the Chehaw zoo which is extremely well kept. Rode the train and the kids had lots of fun. Chehaw also has fantastic employees that always have a... More

I live in this area and have been to other parks in other areas. This is a nice walk through a South Georgia wood. There are animals but some are hard to see others are not that exotic. Bring bug spray in the summer!! The playground is large and can be fun for small children. The camp ground is nice... More

This park is practically in my back yard, but I tend to take it for granted. We've camped here three times. The first time we stayed in the RV section, which was nice. The sites are good size. The other times we stayed on the tent side, where the sites are not defined and are huge and sprawling. You can... More

My husband and I only hiked on the nature trails. They were well marked and we were treated to lovely scenery in peaceful surroundings.

I thought being a smaller city the Zoo would be smaller than Tallahassee. Wrong. They have more animals, a good variety of exotic animals, plus they had it set up where you could actually see all the animals. Enjoyed it very much.
