Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah

4.6
#3 of 8 in Nature in Georgia Coast
State Park Nature / Park
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.

  • We stayed here and camped for a weekend getaway. The campsites were nice and separated from each other. All the facilities appeared to be well maintained. We will definitely be back.  more »
  • We camped here for a few days with our teenage boys. This is a beautiful campground. We rented bikes and took the bike trail. It is a pretty easy, very peaceful ride through the trees on a mostly flat...  more »

  • Wonderful family place. The ranger s are very knowledgeable and helpful. Very educational for kids. The Rangers went from camp site to camp site with a their corn snake (Fritter) to inform the children and families about snakes. They also have a junior ranger program. Hiking trails are flat and informative. Beautiful old trees with Spanish moss hanging true to Savannah charm. The only problem we had was that they need another dump station and more trash cans; the property is very large.
  • Attended a company picnic here, so my review is limited to the picnic area we were in. The area is very pretty! There was a nice playground area close to the picnic pavilion, which was nice for the kids to play on. The pavilion area was nice, with the exception of copious amounts of cobwebs on the pavilion structure. One of the young girls ended up with a bunch in her hair. There park was clean and well kept from what I saw. There were restrooms near by, but I didn't use them so can't comment on them. I would like go come back and explore the park a bit more.
  • Love walking the trails out here. You can bring your dog and just get away from the cars and masses. Enjoy the peacefulness of the outdoors. It's only $50 for a year pass that's good for any GA state park, SUCH A STEAL!
  • This is one of those campgrounds that you just say "wow" as you drive into it. Live oaks line the road, giving it that special sense that this is going to be a special stop. Very shady sites that are very level and roomy. You can see all of your neighbors but you still have the sense of your own space. Check out the nature trails and the interpretive center. Very friendly and professional staff.
  • We were looking for a nice place to grill our BBQ but couldn't find any, we called up this place before an hour to this point. We loved this place for 1. The grill was huge ... Very few people 2. Clean place with a clean bathroom 3. Charging points 4. Nice shady place for a family time 5. Fitness centre 6. So much for all this $10!!!!! 7. Water line in each spot and grill 8. Awesome walking trail I just loved this place, after a long time we had a great family BBQ time and many other activities we good do. Please take time and come enjoy your BBQ here !!!!!
