Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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.

The location was pretty nice and there were some nice trails to walk or ride a bike. The RV spots were ok.

“Pretty ride”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

If you like the beach hit the islands, the sand is great to walk in and don't miss the lighthouse. Lovely scenery and lots of gift shops.

“Awesome State Park”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Took the family tent camping at Skidaway and it was great. Each site was well situated such that you weren't on top of your neighbor. Ours had firepit with grill, picnic table, flat pad for setting up tent, electrical and water. Bathrooms were clean, playground was a nice distraction for the kids. Trails were great, the spanish moss hanging everywhere made it really cool for the kids. Flat paved roads throughout the camp site area, which is great for bikes and scooters.

The staff was awesome. Great location just outside of Savannah and Tybee Island.

“Great State Park”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

One of the few Georgia State Parks that still have ample activities. Tons of programs going on and great hiking trails. Clean restrooms and campsites and the staff is awesome.
