While our family visited Albany this summer, we made a stop at The Parks of Chehaw. We played on a huge playground, petted a snake, fed a camel, rode through the safari with wild animals, and gazed at an abundance of alligators. We didn’t even make it to the campsite, nature trails, disc golf, BMX track, bald eagle aviary, or the banks of Lake Chehaw. Whew! This “zoo” is like no other. It is so much more! I highly recommend a visit here…better yet, a weekend!
If you are in town for a short time, definitely spend some time at the Wild Animal Park. Pet a python, take the Veldt ride, feed Bogart the Bactrian (two-hump) camel who loves people. Chehaw is a special animal sanctuary that obviously takes pleasure in learning about and growing with their animals. If you can stay longer, then camp or cabin in the park for an even more enjoyable adventure. Two-thumbs up from everyone in our family.
