Overview
More
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.

Travelling with my family on Spring Break, we camped here and used it as our base for exploring historic Savannah - only about a 20 minute drive to downtown. Good sized campsites surrounded by large live-oaks dripping with Spanish moss. A good variety of hiking...More

The Savannah Visitor Center actual made my arrangements since they had stopped all RV parking that very morning. At first I dreaded it because of the proximity to town but it was beautiful. Lot's of places to walk my dog too. I love it

Great place to camp! Quiet and peaceful. Plenty of trails that take you through the marshes and to the intercoastal waterway. Close enough to Savannah that you can take in the sites there. The bugs did get bad around 4-6pm every evening. Tiki torches really...More

This is a peaceful place to visit and get back to nature. Camping, fishing, you name it, fee's are reasonable if you like to camp.

We have been to Skidaway several times. It is always clean and well kept. There isn't a bad site in the place. Rangers are friendly and it is so close to Savannah and Tybee Island. Great seafood almost anywhere. Lots of trails and excellent bike...More

We had a very lovely stroll while waiting to get into our rental house downtown. The mossy woods & marsh were lovely & fairly scenic. We enjoyed the nature center, too. The playground was mainly designed for littler kids, just as an FYI. We were...More

Geared more towards campers they do have some interesting trails you can hike. Book early for a good camp spot.

I'm sorry, I don't know. It was just a place for us to camp in order to see the city.
