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.

This is such a fun and easy hike. You'll need walking shoes for sure and a camera! Also, bring a picnic lunch. Unique scenery and well traveled trails are awesome!

Picturesque park, several trails to hike and other facilities (didn't use those). My dog loves it! I recommend the year pass if you are local.

We only had a few hours to spend at the park but we really enjoyed our time there. We hiked about 3 miles and enjoyed seeing the wildlife and the natural beauty of the forest and wetland areas. The history of the area, especially the civil war era, was explained and detailed along the hiking trails.

We camped in area 4, close to bath house between area 3 and 4, it was a newer bathroom with nice showers and washer and dryer there as well. Only 20 minutes to downtown Savannah, we will definitely... More

We went out to the park for a few hours based on reviews and information we'd seen around the hiking trails there. While it was a pretty walk, it was by no means a hike (we followed both the 1mile trails and were back to the car in 35minutes). He informative signs and labeled posts along the first trail were...

We had the opportunity to learn about mushrooms on the Big Ferry Trail. A beautiful trail to hike! So much to explore and learn!
