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

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

Nature at its best! my family and I visited this place with very simple expectations and they were met and more! We wandered the trails with the kids, saw some wildlife and spoke with some knowledgeable staff at the little animal center.Getting to pet a snake was the kids favorite part of the visit! Thank you to the staff for... More

very nice hiking and camping area, away from a lot of noise. people in the office very friendly. the camping sites seem to be close together and not a lot of green space between them. close to a main roadway

We've tried Skidaway Island State Park two ways: camping in springtime and the RV Cabin in summer. Both experiences have been terrific. While camping, we used the "comfort stations'" showers and toilets. They were always clean, but sometimes busy because it was spring break and the campground was fully booked. The campsites are spaced out well, have a fire pit... More

We found it nice to get "with" nature and walk around. Neat to see the palm trees and plants along the walk. There's a real pretty area with wispy like trees with the moss on them that's fun to walk through also.

If you like the beach hit the islands, the sand is great to walk in and don't miss the lighthouse. Lovely scenery and lots of gift shops.

Took the family tent camping at Skidaway and it was great. Each site was well situated such that you weren't on top of your neighbor. Ours had firepit with grill, picnic table, flat pad for setting up tent, electrical and water. Bathrooms were clean, playground was a nice distraction for the kids. Trails were great, the spanish moss hanging everywhere... More

One of the few Georgia State Parks that still have ample activities. Tons of programs going on and great hiking trails. Clean restrooms and campsites and the staff is awesome.
