Trails wind through maritime forest and past salt marsh, leading to a boardwalk and observation tower. Visitors can watch for deer, fiddler crabs, raccoon, egrets and other wildlife. Inside the park’s interpretive center, birders will find binoculars, reference books and a window where they can look for migrating species such as Painted Buntings. Children will especially enjoy seeing the towering, 20-foot Giant Ground Sloth replica and reptile room. A scenic campground is nestled under live oaks and Spanish moss, while groups can enjoy privacy in their own pioneer campgrounds. Open-air picnic shelters and an enclosed group shelter are popular spots for parties, reunions and other celebrations. « less

We stopped for one night, on our way home. We checked in and the staff was fantastic, friendly and helpful.We picked out a site and parked our rig. The site was level, clean, had a a raised area for the picnic table, so no matter how hard it rains, the eating area will be above water. There was a grill,... More

Was expecting more of a park. Did not realize that it was a campground. The female ranger was extremely nice and helpful.

We spent 5 nights at Skidaway Island State Park Campground. If you do not go there to camp, it is a wonderful park with playgrounds, intrepretative center, hiking and biking trails and picnic areas. There is only a $5 park fee for the use of these day activities. We camped in a 5th wheel camper on a campsite that had... More

A nice place to hike, but in the heat of August was a little tough to take. Bring lots of water and sunscreen.

Really enjoyed hiking the trails through the marsh. A few spots right on the water to stop and take a break. Trails are well maintained and easy to follow. Camp grounds were nice, clean, and well maintained. Friendly rangers with excellent information. Bike rentals available. Be warned....the sand nats and horse flies are horrible in the spring!!!!

I have not stayed overnight at the park so I am writing purely as a day visitor. The park is relatively small and easy to see. I love the shaded trails. Great for walking, running or even trail biking. Lots of opportunities to see wildlife. The trails are flat and nice packed sand. Just watch for roots if you are... More
