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 has to be one of the best campgrounds we’ve ever stayed at. Almost all the sites are on very large sites with privacy. The facilities were in great condition. I know a lot of people say Disney’s Fort Wilderness is one of the best in the Southeast, but this campground is easily at the same level as Fort Wilderness. If you are looking for a great campground without the “jam as many people as possible” business model, we’d highly recommend this campground.
We had no problems getting in and the trails/sites are large and clean. Deer and other wildlife are seen every day.
Large pull thru campsites, Tybee Island and Savannah near by!
Skidaway Island State Park outside Savannah, Ga. Had to keep an eye on the dogs who aren't used to things trying to eat them.
Sandy campground, narrow, but level sites. Nice enough, but sand in all those places:)
The trail is nice. Has a walkway across the beach ecosystem, you can see the ground move. It's the cool little crabs running in and out of their holes.
This is actually down the street from my house. I love coming here. It's reasonably priced to camp/visit, so many wonderful places to hike around and some awesome fishing spots. Lots of coverage from trees…since is hot for most of the year here that is a plus! I highly recommend a visit here. You have grocery, restaurants, liquor, bait, etc. right down the street as well.
Nice campground close to Savannah. More RVs than tents, lots of spots with electric hookups as a result. People are supposed to turn off their generators at a decent hour, but…. It was cool to camp under the Spanish moss. Nice bathrooms with fairly clean showers (3 shower houses in the campground!), all sites had the standard picnic tables and firepits. Be sure to make reservations as this is a busy campground (maybe he closest to historic Savannah).
this place was a fun place to go boating and fishing, however like many other places in GA it is scary to go swimming in the water due to gators. they are fun to see though! I saw quite a few when i was out there. Other than that the park was well kept, and the bathrooms and everything seemed to be pretty well taken care of…
