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.

Everything else was closed on New Year's Day so we ended up here. The nature trails are very good. There are quite a few roots so if you have any issues with walking on uneven surfaces it might not be for you. It was a good place to go relax after NYE and let the dogs get some exercise.

My husband and I camped here in our camper van on our way to Texas and warmer weather. We only spent two nights here so the review will be based on a short visit in a cold spell! The sites are relatively private sites with live oaks festooned with Spanish moss. According to the ranger, Hurricane Matthew came through in... More

This was our second time staying here. I really enjoyed my stay. The restrooms were clean and warm, most of the lots could fit a variety of sized trailers. We didn't have a pull through, but it was still even to get into.

I went to visit with wife and two kids. They have an information center that does not look great on the outside but has plenty of info inside. In addition, the ranger lady knows a lot and explains to the public about alligators and other creatures. They also have bird feeders with lots of birds in the back of the... More

This place was amazing...the sites are so big and private, it was amazing. The bath houses were clean and well maintained. Laundry facilities were good, too. Everyone on staff was super friendly and helpful. The area is easy to get to, get around and navigate. While we were in an RV, tent campers have elevated boxed off area for their... More

The park provides looped trails and a connector trail too. The trails were generally rustic, shaded and flat, with boardwalks in wetland areas. Many opportunities to see water and birds. There was a nominal parking fee, but definitely worth it.

My wife and I were looking for a place to get out of town, enjoy nature and do some hiking. This turned out to be a perfect place. It might seem busy with all of the camp sites right after you enter the park, but once you get to the trails it's a very quiet escape into nature. Seeing that... More

This park is full of campers and trailers. The nature walks are not well laid out. I was let down because its a great island-to-marsh location.

Hi Peter, Did you get one of our park maps from the office? The fall and winter are our busiest time of year. Some areas may not have been accessible due debris damage from Hurricane Matthew. We hope you come and see us again in the near future. More

This state park is worth a visit. The marshes, trees, and Spanish moss are beautiful, and there are remnants of an old still hidden in the park. Definitely check it out if you're headed to Skidaway Island!
