Lee County - Chad Schwartz, Mark Kimball, and Mark Pickett brought their families to the Parks at Chehaw for a few nights of camping rather using up a lot of gas to drive out of town.

The men say they had just as much fun at Chehaw as they would have out of town. Mark Pickett says, "Chehaw is a great facility we have right here at home. You don't have to travel to get here, we forget about it." Mark Kimball adds, "Originally we were going to go to Florida, go to Navarre Beach, and with the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, we decided, it was probably not the patriotic thing to do, in light of what took place, as well as the price of gasoline."

Hurricane evacuees can visit The Parks at Chehaw free of charge. All you have to do is show a valid Louisiana, Mississippi, or Alabama car tag or ID, or a voucher from the Red Cross. Chehaw is open until five everyday and is located on Philema Road.
