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. Put Skidaway Island State Park into our Savannah trip site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It's $5 to get in and there are several different trails to walk. We really enjoyed this state park and you can't get lost. While we were here some of the trails were closed because of hurricane Irma ...  more »
  • We detoured off of I-95 to explore someplace off the path. Found a trail pretty quickly, but the bugs drove us away. Left after about 20 minutes! This was late May - maybe a winter visit would be bett...  more »
  • Had a great chat with Ranger Vicky. She gave me some good tips (Sorry, Vicky, I'll have to go to Wormsloe next time!), and enthusiastic about her profession.  more »

  • Clean and well groomed. Spacious lots, almost all of them seem to be pull thrus. Really an awesome campground! Paved roads, level ground and 3 restroom/laundry stations. Only giving 4 stars because $40 a night seemed a bit high for a state park. But I'm not from here, maybe that's the going rate for a Georgia state park.
  • Best campground we have ever pitched our tent in. There is plenty of space between campsites. Sandy raised platforms are available, drain well, and are large enough for your tent, awning, and picnic table. The trees keep everything shaded. The bathrooms and showers are clean and well maintained with plenty of hot water to go around. Nice hiking trails too. And a great location, just minutes from Downtown Savannah. A+++!!!
  • Nice state park. Wooded lots. Deer crossed our path as we drove into the park. We enjoyed the hike through the woods, easy walk or biking. Bathroom/shower area clean and working. One washer/dryer but both worked fine. It rained every night we were there so we enjoyed having cable TV. Staff very helpful and check-in was easy-pick any site you want!
  • This park is on a barrier island just off Savannah, GA. On our way to Amelia Island for vacation we stopped there to have a picnic. Our toddler was excited to get out of the car and onto a playground. Before hiking one of their nature trails we stopped in the “interpretive center”. A park ranger was doing a talk on alligators and had a live baby gator that the kids got to touch.
  • Great experience if you like wild life I was into it for awhile Until my cousin spooked me about a snake! Lol other that that it was great if your that type of person +
