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 camped here during our visit to Savannah and enjoyed it very much!. It's a bit pricey for a campground, but hey, the location is great as you are only about 15 minutes from downtown Savannah and yet it is very quiet. We have a popup camper so we selected one of the spots on loop 4 which is towards... More

We had fun here. Saw a number of big and small groups having picnics. The grounds were very well kept. We hiked the Ferry Trail. It was relaxing, shady, and full of woodpeckers.

I visited the Skidaway Island State park with my children to see the nature center. The nature center is included with the park admission fee which, for a day, is $5. Short of the long is that there is not much to the nature center. But it does have some good walking trails.. We did a brief drive around of... More

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and were very pleased. We arrived just after the hurricane had passed through and I noticed the staff handled an irritated person extremely well, especially when I realized that the staff had weathered a hurricane in those last few hours, was looking at a long weekend of overtime getting the campground restored, and...

After binge-watching three seasons of Tyler Florence's The Great Food Truck Race, we were super-excited to learn of a food truck festival going on in Savannah, GA this past Labor Day weekend. So we headed over to Skidaway State Park for their very first food truck festival, and from the looks of it, it won't be their last! My original... More

Skidaway is our favorite GA state park! Close enough to get to Tybee Island or Savannah. We love riding our bikes on the trails. They even had a Food Truck Festival while we were there! Good eats!

Lovely park, clean and shady. Very hot and humid, but managed to see downtown Savannah. The park was a wonderful place to stay after a full day of sight seeing.

Spent multiple years coming back to ride this trail with 2 young children. The trail is relatively short, but is great fun. There are many roots and a mountain bike is necessary. Reserve about 2 hours to make multiple passes.

We hiked the Sandpiper Trail and had a picnic at one of the pavilions. Nothing makes this park different or better than others, but it was a nice visit in spite of the July heat.
