Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah

4.6
#4 of 9 in Parks in Savannah
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 have a large motorhome and we could have parked two in this drive through site. It even had a sand patio that had been ranked (reminded me of sand art). No problem getting in or out of the site and...  more »

    My wife and I decided to drive down to Skidaway Island and visit the state park to see a different side of Savannah, well away from the tourists. The trail we took was well marked, but did get a bit m...  more »

    I must admit that August in Skidaway is HOT and muggy, but although the campground was almost empty it was lovely: plenty of shade, over 30 feet between most campsites and clean bathrooms. We were 40 ...  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.
