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.

The park provides looped trails and a connector trail too. The trails were generally rustic, shaded and flat, with boardwalks in wetland areas. Many opportunities to see water and birds. There was a nominal parking fee, but definitely worth it.

My wife and I were looking for a place to get out of town, enjoy nature and do some hiking. This turned out to be a perfect place. It might seem busy with all of the camp sites right after you enter the park, but once you get to the trails it's a very quiet escape into nature. Seeing that... More

This park is full of campers and trailers. The nature walks are not well laid out. I was let down because its a great island-to-marsh location.

Hi Peter, Did you get one of our park maps from the office? The fall and winter are our busiest time of year. Some areas may not have been accessible due debris damage from Hurricane Matthew. We hope you come and see us again in the near future. More

This state park is worth a visit. The marshes, trees, and Spanish moss are beautiful, and there are remnants of an old still hidden in the park. Definitely check it out if you're headed to Skidaway Island!

My husband and I rented bikes for an hour and rode the 3-mile trail together. The view was beautiful!

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
