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.

Spent two nights here while exploring Savanah and surrounding areas. The campground was nice and quite and the sights had a good spacing between them. The park is less than a twenty minute drive to the historic down town area of Savanah but make sure you give yourself ample time to stay and enjoy the park. The staff were great!... More

On a trip to Florida, we decided Savannah, GA, would be a nice stop, and found Skidaway Island State Park after searching for nearby campgrounds. The Spanish moss hangs beautifully from the trees as you drive on the road into the park. Reservations for the campground can be made online. The campground has spots and hookups for RVs and also...

This is a nice day trip to see 400 lice Oak Trees that form a tunnel. This doesn't take long, there are also walking paths there.

This is the most expensive state park we've ever camped in. Plus they get you with more fees. $40 for camping, plus $5 for car pass. You can't reserve a site, so if you need a 50 amp site you might not get one because there is a tent campers taking up the 50 amps spots. It's quiet and the... More

We spent a morning here doing some birding and were very pleased. We walked the Big Ferry Trail and Sandpiper Trail and spent a bit of time watching the feeders at the interpretive center. We logged a good list of birds, including several painted buntings. The trails are very well maintained and mostly level. Along the way you find information... More

Since last writing about Skidaway Island State Park three years ago, a lot has changed and all for the better. There are now 17 full-hookup sites for RVs and most of them are pull-thru with 50amp electrical service, water, sewer and cable.. A few are able to accommodate a large Freightliner tractor pulling a long trailer. As always, and particularly... More

I walk the trails at Skidaway often but only recently got to spend some time birdwatching at their Interpretive Center, it's awesome!! I was at their Painted Bunting talk and we watched males and females at the feeders while learning a ton about these pretty little birds! There are so many guide books and photos and exhibits, if you are... More

We camped here for only one night, but the parks' trails were very well maintained and given its approximation to Savannah and suburbia, fairly extensive. I recommend going at dusk or dawn for a great experience seeing lots of bird life while taking in the wonderful forest and history here. Well worth the cost for camping, everything is well maintained... More
