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.

A bit of a drive out of downtown Savannah but once you get there there are some nice trails both in the woods and along the water. The visitor center has bird feeders that are very popular with local birds and the staff can tell you which trails are likely to have birds along them.

Nice park for a hike. We took the walking trails and got a good look at Eagles in a next just off the trail. Make sure you take bug spray and water. It gets sticky and buggy in the marsh. Maybe if we get back in a couple of weeks we'll get to see chicks in the nest.

My family & I stayed here for two days over spring break. This is such a lovely campground and park! Great trails, bike rentals & beautiful old growth forests to walk through. There's grocery stores nearby & plenty to keep you busy within a 30 minute drive. The facilities for campers were so clean & well kept! Savannah & tybee... More

We spent spring break 2015 here at Skidaway Island State Park campground. Having read many reviews, I came with high expectations and was not disappointed! If you are looking for beach, this is likely not the campground for you. As the crow flies, this state park is near the Atlantic Ocean but the nearest beach is a 30 to 90... More

A beautiful park. We rented a camper cabin and it was clean and luxurious. The trails are flat and the scenery is beautiful. We saw many birds both at the Interpretive Center feeder and on the trails and along the Intercoastal Waterway. Savannah is a short (20 min) drive. The park staff were all kind and very helpful.

What a nice park, we visited to see the campground/rv park area. Next year that is where I want to stay for about a month or so to take in all of the history this area has to offer, not to mention the beauty of this location.

My wife and I camped there a weekend in early March. The pads are pretty large, the patio section was huge and the firepit was clean. Most of the spots are secluded and the many trees make it seem as if you are one of the few people there. We attended an event at the the pavilion, which had ample... More

We chose to camp here for 5 days without ever having seen it before our visit. As you enter through the long lane draped with Spanish moss, you start to fell the peacefulness of the place. The campground is well kept, the campsites are large and all are quite close to facilities..Each site had a raised area for either tents... More

This was a nice change from the bustle of downtown and all the tourist traps. We went as the tide was going out, and saw all kinds of birds foraging in the tidal marshes. The trails were well-kept, and generally easy to follow.

The drive out here will take you across Moon River and into a beautiful marsh area. There is a fee to get into the park, but you will see some colonial ruins, and possible alligators.
