4.5/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
With trails for hiking, biking, and birding and facilities for camping, Skidaway Island State Park provides a picturesque setting for exploring Georgia's maritime forest and salt marshes. Amble through the forest, marshes, and sand dunes on the 1.6 km (1 mi) Sandpiper Trail or the 4.8 km (3 mi) Big Ferry Trail, and grab your binoculars to spot egrets and painted buntings on the Colonial Coast birding trail. The park rents bikes if you prefer to pedal around. Kids can entertain themselves with three playgrounds, and they usually find the park's 6 m (20 ft) replica of a giant ground sloth especially enthralling. In addition to regular camping facilities, the park also rents camper cabins.

  • 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 ye...  read 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. 
  • This is definitely a unique outdoor experience for a state like Georgia. The trails are easy and blend the large, mossy trees synonymous with southern agriculture together with plants offering a tropical charm. The result is a great stop during a coastal vacation that also brings visitors close to the saltwater marshes.
  • This was our first stop outside of Florida. It has a lot of RV and tent sites. All under trees, so plenty of shade. Depending on the site you are staying on you are in good distance of a restroom, which were very well kept. Some streets are a little tight for an RV like ours, but were manageable. Most sites had plenty of distance between them which gave a little privacy. No full hook-ups and only one dumpsite. They did all have grills and fire places and condoned picking up of dead limbs for firewood They had some great trails with beautiful scenery of the marsh and historic landmarks. We also saw multiple deer just strolling down the street with their young. If you were to go on the trails, you have to visit the watch tower. There was a gas station and Publix a block away from the entrance. We were also able to hit Downtown Savannah in our scooter(30min).
  • Nice park, heavily treed with live oaks and lots of Spanish Moss. The FHU sites are pull throughs and are enormous. They are located off a wide interior road with easy access. The rest of the sites are on surrounding loops, they are dirt and vary a bit in size and ease of access. Some sweet private spots are to be found. The roads are narrow and tight through the trees with some root damage. Verizon is 4G and fast. There is decent hiking paths and plenty of room to walk within the campground. It's super quiet. Didn't try the showers but they were clean. There is laundry available as well. Access to Savannah is 20-30 minutes. Nice place, with the exception of the nightly rate wouldn't hesitate to come again.
  • We camped here for a few days while we visited the Savannah and Tybee Island area. We love the scenery in the park, the old trees, moss covered oaks, etc. We managed to snap a picture of 2 different types of woodpeckers. The sites are great for smaller RVs, the larger rigs are limited to where they can park. The bath houses were bright and very clean except for a little mold in the shower area. Nothing a little bleach won't take care of. The folks at the check in point were very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. There is a little store there but supplies are very limited. A grocery store is not far away if you need anything. The park is conveniently located and fairly easy to get to if you have a GPS.
  • I have been to this park several times with my kids. There are hiking trails, playgrounds, RV camp, and picnic areas. We mostly enjoy the playground since there are no crowds and is mostly shaded by big oak trees. There is a bicycle rental and lots of picnic tables. I do recommend use of insect repellant to avoid getting bitten by Georgia bugs. If you are on the lookout for a new place to do some hiking or for the kids to play, do come to Skidaway park.
