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.

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.

I only gave this place three stars because I am completely spoiled by better views. This is a nice walk to go on, especially considering how hot it gets in Georgia since there is plenty of shade. There are two hiking trails; you can combine the two for a total of 5 miles or just walk them individually. There are... More

The best way to see this park is to rent bikes and go through the biking trails. The live oak tunnel that you see when you drive into the park is worth the drive alone. We are so happy to check out a little nature while in Savannah and would go back here the next time we are in town!

We camped there for 3 nights, loved it. Sites are big and shady, bathrooms are clean, staff are friendly and resourceful. We had visits from a couple of raccoons (definitely store ALL your food items and kitchen essentials in your car) who think we were there serving them breakfast, lunch and dinner, a couple of squirrels who threw pine cones...

This is a gorgeous state park. The campground sites are large and most are well shaded by the numerous Live Oak trees. Very clean and well maintained with friendly park staff. Only 14 miles to downtown Savannah.

Reasonable, close to Savannah, and very clean. Sites are large and separated by trees. Lovely place.

We stayed at this campground while meeting some friends in Savannah. They have a fifth wheel camper and had a great "pull through" site. We opted for renting a cabin, and were literally stunned at how outstanding the cabin was. I have a problem knowing where to begin it was so nice. The cabin looks very new. The inside of... More

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
