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

The location was pretty nice and there were some nice trails to walk or ride a bike. The RV spots were ok.

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.

We go to this park at least once a month! It has multiple trails and a fun visitors center for the kiddies. There isn't a fee to get in to the park other than parking which is $5.00 but they offer military discounts as well. There is some great civil war history on the trails which is gives some conversation... More

I visited this park twice in two days -- mostly because my children like to hike. Though it was sweltering, we found the shade rather tolerable, and I was able to mostly enjoy our hike of the Sandpiper Trail with two children (2 & 4) and a baby strapped to me. I would recommend taking the trail early in the... More

This was our first stay and I have to say we were extremely happy with our choice. The campsites were nicely spaced with a lot of elbow room in between. There was everything from tent up to big pull-thru sites with full hook-up (our choice). The entire place was well kept and clean. We had a couple of nice hikes... More
