Overview
More
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.

Be sure to book far far away from playground if looking for peace and quiet. It is 7 am and it sounds like recess at an elementary school. Maybe weekends are like this at most parks but this one seems exceptionally loud.

Love this park. Huge sites with lots of shade. Good access to Savannah and Tybee Island. Recommend making online reservations, for weekends for sure. Great stop for a few days going north or south.

We travel around in a motor home quite a bit and this is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. We made reservations 6 month ago and right now the permenent sign says full. About 6 miles from downtown Savanna.

Yes and the sites are really large . When we were there we bought the Georgia State park pass which gave us 2 nights free so we paid less for the 4 nights we stayed. Beautiful
