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.

We were so happy to find this beautiful state park during our 3 day stay in Savannah. We decided to rent bikes to explore one of the trails. It was wonderful! We biked around for 1,5 hours and took our time to absorb the beautiful scenery and spot birds, squirrels, crabs, lizards, deer etc. Highly recommended! One advice: rent a... More

The park is beautiful with many amenities. The campgrounds will accommodate almost any sized rig. Campground signage could be improved to clearly indicate one way roads at intersections.

The sites are very heavily wooded which is great especially during the summer The staff that work here are so accommodating and kind and incredibly friendly The location is perfect a short 10 to 15 minute drive to downtown Savannah Our only recommendation /suggestion or wish would be that they would add a pool so that there would be more...

We camped here in a tent- the sites are very spacious and even when people were at the sites all around us we felt like we were alone. Bathrooms were clean. The trails throughout the park are wonderful- tons of crabs and other wildlife to observe.

On our way home from St. Augustine we decided to take the long route and stop in Savannah. We took our lunch in and made a picnic of it. This is a gorgeous park and I imagine it would be a fabulous place to bring a large group or class of children for a camping trip. The walking trails are... More

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
