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.

Beautiful shady campground with huge spaces. The roads are a little confusing and the sites do not have paved areas so they are not well defined. You have to look for the hookup and just park beside it. Some sites have full hookups with 50 amp and others just have electricity (30 amp) and water at a lower rate. All... More

Close to Savannah and Tybee island with low rates. Quiet and heavily shaded, Skidaway Island State Park is a nice alternative to expensive private parks. All sites are pull through and have water and electric. Some have cable and there are about 10 with sewer hook up. About 10-15 minutes from Savannah....

Wonderful campground with very close and easy proximity to Savannah (15-20 minutes). Campsites are roomy and shady, you pick your own site on arrival. The bathrooms are old but clean. Bring some bug spray if visiting in the summer as the flys and mosquitos are bad (not enough to keep us from having a campfire). The trip to Savannah is... More

This lovely park set in a wooded, marsh setting offers plenty of options with camping, hiking, grilling and biking options. Picnic pavilions include grills, playgrounds for the younger crowd and clean bathrooms. Dogs are permitted and poopie bags and waste cans strategically located. This would be a great location for picnics because there is something for everyone to enjoy--young or... More

We've camped here and we go sometimes for just a walk and a picnic. We love the nature trails! Bring your bug spray in the summer and lots of water since Savannah is HOT! the bathhouses are good and were clean each time we have been there. The pool wasn't open when we went last time, I think they have... More

My wife & I camped in this beautifully wooded state park in our travel trailer for a week ending the 5th of July. The staff was outstanding, informative & personable. The campground was clean, level, shady (mid 90's all week) & convenient to Savannah & the surrounding area. We rented a full service campsite, very reasonably priced with cable &... More

Not a terribly exciting park to visit, but it's a lovely example of the Georgia coast with its marshes, tiny fiddler crabs that will wave their one big claw as you walk past them on the wooden bridges that cross over creeks, and many towering thin pine trees. The trees and other plants that make up the canopy provide plenty... More

Skidaway Island State Park has a nature center and several trails. Since it was a hot humid afternoon with spotty rain we settled for the 1 mile trail that covered both woods and estuary. It was excellent way to get a feel for the surrounding habitat.

I walked on the trails several times, covering all the ground on the excellent map provided by the facility. Beautiful area. Some history, mostly just quiet nature. Enjoyed it greatly.
