Owner description: Located near historic Savannah, this park borders Skidaway narrows, a part of Georgia’s intracoastal waterway. 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.

The only time we felt it was worth visiting was Spring when the Painted Buntings are nesting in the Park. They are very colorful birds the watch. The wildlife center has feeders to attract them for good picture taking.

This state park is loaded with beautiful trees and a very spacious camp ground. Sites are wide and most are pull throughs!

Quiet campsite. Great nature trails. One geocache in the park. Clean public restrooms. Everyone had a good time, adults and teenagers included. Only downside, is that the park is infested with ticks. I go to state parks often and this is the worst I've ever seen. I wouldn't recommend this park for camping because of that.

I currently live in Savannah and had a break of nice weather in December and decided to escape for the weekend and go camping at Skidaway. Since it was in the off season we just went up to the check-in area and asked for one night stay, typically it is on a two night minimum reservations. The staff were all... More

Quiet park with great camping areas. Campsites were huge, clean well kept. Not much to do in the park except hiking.

Beautiful park, and for a five buck parking fee, you can't beat it for value. We spent the afternoon walking a few of the trails with our beagle. He was in sniffing heaven, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The RV sites are very large and well spaced. The Spanish moss hangs like green icicles from the massive oaks, allowing only beams of sunlight through. The park has great hiking paths, some open to bicycles and pets. Located on the southside of Savannah, it was a great location to explore the city and surrounding area.

We loved it here! My only complaint? We couldn't level here despite multiple efforts. That's it.I doubt it is like that for every site though and if we would have thought to bring a shovel, I think we could have got level by moving some of the gravel around. Our site was wonderful in every other way. It was a... More

I recently visited Skidaway Island State Park for a wedding reception, and I camped there many years ago. This park is located on a marsh between the island and the mainland. There is a scenic overlook of the marsh, but you can't really see it from the campsites. The campsites do have a couple of shower houses in close proximity... More

Nice and relaxing. Quiet trail that was a great for a 5K or just to go run with a friend. A little out of the way which can be nice if you want quiet but not if you are in a hurry and want a quick stop
