Campsite 14 faces road so less privacy but campground was nice and clean. Showers were clean and warm and family oriented. Boat dock area has couple bench swings that were wonderful relaxing. Deer came close at night.
Arrived here for a four-night tent stay. Easy drive in from Tomoka State Park up I-95. Got the last spot at #62 which is very large and has a large tent pad. The electric and water hookups are on the edge of the street, so I had to use both the 75 and 25 foot extension cords to give power to the tent. There's a fire pit and a large picnic table. The restrooms are clean, as well as the laundry room. The dumpster and recycling bin are a bit far from 62, so bring your bicycle, lol. Deer were roaming the grounds in the early morning. Lots of birds singing at sunrise too. Great place. The 45-min drive up to Tybee Island Beach is totally worth it, with beautiful marshes and flatlands along the way. Beach photos included here.
We wanted to explore the GA coast and Skidaway Island State Park did not disappoint. We used the park as a base to experience Georgia's low country.
While the Island is basically a gated community for Savannah, the park is a beautiful reminder of a time gone by with Spanish moss draped live oaks and plenty of wildlife to see and hear.
Well maintained and clean, the park is just what we were looking for. The hosts keep the place spotless and make sure the rules for dogs and quiet times are adhered to for the enjoyment of all, while being friendly and helpful to everyone.
The trials inside the park are wide, well marked and, scenic. During tides they can be a bit "moist" so plan to walk part of the trails barefooted or simply avoid those areas.
We did get on the water with our paddle boards as there is a public boat ramp just over the causeway. Exploring the marshlands and seeing the wildlife was awesome. The ramp was clean and well maintained. There is a kayak tour serve that operates from the ramp so, if you don't have water gear, you can rent from them or take part in a tour. Just make note of tides and wind.
Provisions are close at hand with 2 large, well stocked grocery stores within minutes of the park entrance.
October is a wonderful time to visit the Georgia coast. Bugs, tourists, and foul weather are at seasonal lows. Our visit was the middle of October and the days were warm and sunny with the nights cool and mostly bug free. We did get a couple of night time showers and the sound of rain on the tent fly lulled us to sleep. Waking up to the barred owls hooting to each other was nice as well.
UGA has a learning center on the island with an aquarium but, due to COVID, you must make reservations for admittance. The site has some discovery tails that are great for everyone with a boardwalk that extends over the marsh.
As noted in other reviews, Savanah is close by and the beaches of Tybee Island are about 20 minutes away. Fort Polaski is a great place to explore with a lighthouse trial. Be aware that the trial can be very muddy at times. We walked the trail bare footed with pants legs rolled up. No issues.
We visited Wormslow Historic Site. There is a 1.5 mile drive under towering moss draped live oaks to the visiter's center. Beautiful. At the visitor's center you can learn about the history of the site and inhabitants. There are trails through the site with historical reenactment sites along the way.
We plan to go back next fall.
Didn’t take the history tour, but loved the southern charm and wildlife throughout the campground. We rode our bikes all over but the most enjoyable ride was the mile of causeway through the salt marshes. Campsite was level and the grounds were full but quiet. The only wifi was at the office/museum, so we would ride there on bikes and sit on the porch watching the visitors and taking care of business. We were visited by a snake and cute little gecko. Wishing we could have stayed much longer.
Close enough to Savanna to be convenient but far enough out to be quiet.
First, the check in process was like checking into a nice hotel. Front desk was courteous and prepared. They had guide ready to escort us to our spot.
Our back-in site was level and easy to get into. They could use a few more trees, but everything was manicured and beautiful.
The facilities make this place nearly a destination resort in itself. Beautiful pool and hot tub. Lazy lagoon and kids water park we being filled while we were there. Pool, darts, ping pong, etc in the common area with TVs surrounded by the nicest shower we had all trip. Didn’t use the laundry but looked clean and nice.
20 minutes away from historic Savannah, but this place really impressed me for my overnight. Had a paved pull through (site 39) and it was ultra clean, level, and everything here seems brand new. They have gravel sites too, but the paved sites are more convenient and it looked like every site has its own fire pit (the office delivers firewood on request). Upon entering the park, you see a huge oak tree with gray moss (classic Savannah) and a very nice, new, country-club-like office and family-friendly pool. They seemed to be finishing a kid play pool and a lazy river with palm trees next to the existing tennis court. Staff escort to your site is a nice touch and so is curbside trash pickup (no recycling, unfortunately). The best surprise of all, and what makes this place really unique, is the restaurant and bar on the lake where we listened to live music (amazing singer) in Adirondack chairs around a huge, stone fire pit with trendy Edison bulb tea lights strung overhead. The only drawback was there was nothing for me to eat on my plant-based (vegan) diet and even the frozen piña colada had dairy whipped cream on top. Despite the park being very up-to-date, the general attitude of the staff, although friendly, did not seem very progressive. For example, only one younger staff member (out of many) in the indoor office and restaurant wore a mask during the rising Covid outbreak. More concern for the health and safety of their staff and guests is needed here.
We really loved this park. Do not leave any food or your cooler out. We had visits from deer everyday. The campground is at the back of this park and Sonia the boat launch. We put our kayaks in and went paddling up the salt marshes. Very peaceful day. Be sure to visit the fort. It is very cool to walk around and see the underground bunkers. So much history here I never knew about.
This place is huge! Lots of sites. Well laid out design. Big pool and lots to do. They have a restaurant there that is right in the lake. Food was great! We had a pull through full hookup site in the new section of the park. Pretty level, nice fire pit, and as much room as you’d expect in a park this size. Kids loved the playground and pool. Staff was nice, and it was about 20 minutes to downtown Savannah but close to plenty of restaurants and shopping. As mentioned before (and normal with new parks) there is no shade. Also the WiFi and cable were non existent. We were told on the phone the WiFi was “spotty” and then when we got there we were told it had been knocked out by a lightening storm (as well as the cable too)… but on the internet it says you have to ask for a direct tv box and they are first come first serve. I did ask about it and they said they didn’t use that anymore. Obviously it wasn’t a deal breaker to us, but for the price you pay you should at least have dependable WiFi, and it didn’t work at all. There was also construction going on while we were there, but we left during the biggest part of the day while they were working. Good experience but just some little details that could be improved on for sure and at least having the amenities that are advertised or offering a discount when you know they aren’t working.
Arrived here for a three-night tent stay at spot #53, after a stay at Crooked River. The entrance to the campground is through a long causeway surrounded by beautiful marshes. The campground attendants are tops. There is a nice office/souvenir shop at the entrance to the site. Wood bundles are paid for in cash at a small shed; just pay for what you take and place the money through the slot in the tin can. Site #53 is near the rest rooms which were spacious and individually apportioned. Lots of deer sightings both day and night. Armadillos roam the grounds too. However, the terror of the campground are the very courageous raccoons that will approach your picnic table to steal your food while you're sitting on the other side! As I read in some other review at another site, these raccoons are straight-up terrorists. Couldn't kayak because the facility was closed due to COVID, bummer. Lots of history, some gnarly bugs, some unfortunate rain… may come back.
