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.

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.

We are walkers, not campers ... but for other walkers, this is a great spot to be. If you are visiting Savannah, you have probably walked River Street and Forsyth Park, so now head out to Skidaway Island State Park. Beautiful flat pathways with great natural sites to see. Take your binoculars and camera, and allow a couple of hours... More

What a nice campground! I have never stayed in a campground with such huge spacious sites. There are only a handful of FHU sites, so I do recommend calling ahead to reserve it if that is what you are looking for. The cable works very well. The water pressure is great. The sites are shaded with huge old live oaks... More

Just completed our second stay here in the past year or so. Lovely big old trees/ Spanish Moss and campsites are not right on top of each other like some campgrounds are. We camped at a site near the end of the farthest loop and did not notice any issues with noise or traffic. Bath-houses vary a bit within the... More

We were disappointed overall so only rating average. The sites are mostly pull through and rather large. There were approx 6 sites roped off for repairs and several of the sites need grading to smooth area and make set up possible. We stayed on site #12 which was a beautiful site. After we unhooked the travel trailer and almost completely... More

Thank you so much for taking to time to review Skidaway. I am sorry that your stay was only average. I apologize for the work we were doing on some of the sites on the park. We do have to close sites from time to time, in order to complete needed repairs, but it is usually not for long. I... More
