As part of Georgia’s Intracoastal Waterway, Skidaway Island State Park is nearly 600 acres of maritime forest, tidal creeks, and salt marshes nestled between the Skidaway River and the housing developments of The Landing. The park’s main draw is its lush coastal woods of live oaks, red cedars, and pines dripping with Spanish moss, which, in turn, is home for a variety of wildlife, including deer, raccoons and a variety of shorebirds. Many of the park’s flora and fauna can be seen on a network of 6 miles of walking trails and boardwalks. Some trails are ADA accessible, and some are also open to cyclists. For your best chance at spying a resident alligator, go for a stroll on the 2-mile Big Ferry Trail.
Visitors to Skidaway Island State Park, just a 10-mile drive southeast of Savannah, have access to nearly 90 tent and RV campsites, in addition to 3 camper cabins and 3 group campsites. All sites offer electrical hookups, and some are ADA accessible. Campground amenities include restrooms with showers, bike rentals, picnic areas, two playgrounds, laundry facilities, and an interpretive center. There is also an amphitheater that hosts seasonal interpretive programs. A hiking trail from the campground leads to an observation tower that overlooks the Skidaway Narrows, where you can scan for egrets and osprey. If you’re lucky, you might spot dolphins swimming up the waterway. Campsite rates range from $40–$49/night; cabins range from $42–$140/night.
This campground was breathtaking with Spanish moss dripping from the trees. Loved the privacy of the campsites and the trails. Plenty of water activities to do and history to learn.
This state park is only a few miles from down town Savannah, Fort Pulaski National historic site, Wormsloe Plantations and more. Nice level sites, hook ups, shade! We did have heavy rain 2 nights, so it was wet, but the sandy sites drained well.
This place is Great! I went there with my family about a month ago, they have hiking trails, bike trails, a nature center and plenty of room for kids to ride bikes. The camp sites are a great size and all of them are pretty close to a bath house. I will definitely go back! They are also pet friendly!
Very clean State Park with clean bath house. 30 & 50 amp sites with water, very few have sewer. If you are into watching TV they have cable on the electrical pedestal.
Pros: this is one of the best campgrounds I've ever visited, and one of the quietest. The sites are decently sized and most have good privacy because of plants left up in between sites. The facilities in this park are also the cleanest and most modern I've ever encountered in a campground, and the hot showers were free!! In addition, the rangers were very friendly and one of them even biked to my site to check on how I liked it (because I was a last minute walk-in). This park also has several trails throughout, and the ones I hiked were absolutely gorgeous, the sandpiper trail in particular.
Cons: the sites have cement picnic tables which are very rough. That's all I could think of, this place was great!
I would definitely stay here again given the chance!
Spent 3 nights at Skidaway Island SP in July. Beautiful, shaded campground with lots to do. Convenient to historic Savannah, Wormslow plantation and Fort Pulaski. Nice hiking trails
Love this spot! The campsites have ample space to spread out a bit and still not bug the neighbors. The vegetation is typical of the region, pretty unique if you're not from here- lush palmettos, and large oak trees draped with Spanish Moss which somehow adds to the laid back tone of the place. Beautiful trails if you're keen for a mellow hike (no elevation to be gained/lost in these parts). The deer aren't shy about cruising through camp. If you're tent camping definitely aim for a site far from RVs to cut down on generator noise/exhaust. Savannah and Tybee are within easy reach (~20 mins) if you want to mix things up. In my experience, things tend to stay a little warmer out here compared to inland during the winter- one trip it was in the 30s in Atlanta but in the 50s on Skidaway.
My favorite campground…nestled in a maritime forest, the live oaks and Spanish moss, drip and dance around you, lending an air of romance and other- worldly feel.
Skidaway is on an island off Savannah Georgia, accessible over a causeway, that allows a view of the beautiful marsh and river topography. When in the campground, you feel miles away from downtown Savannah, and yet in 15 minutes you have access to the beautiful, and colorful city filled with great food, history, art and music.
This campground is well organized and the staff are proficient at their job.
There is shopping near and wonderful seafood restaurants within a short drive.
The coast of Georgia is a must to explore by boat. Wild islands and beautiful rivers abound.
We went to Skidaway Island State Park Departure very is very clean restrooms are clean it’s close to Savannah so we want to explore Savannah the weekend we were there what a way to save money the park rates are so much cheaper than hotel rates Plus I had cable TV also at the park
