We booked site 61 at Skidaway Island State Park for our first trip to Savannah. It was a convenient location for experiencing the low country.
We called ahead because we knew we’d arrive after hours. The staff was helpful and completed the check in process over the phone. She hung out tag at our site and left our map taped to the Visitor Center for our convenience. Our site was a little difficult to find (we had to make the loop a second time before finding it). The main road through the campground is two-lane, but the other roads are very narrow with vehicles driving in both directions. Fortunately, we didn’t encounter another rig on the narrow road of campground #4.
We loved the seclusion our site provided. We had a little trouble getting level with all of the roots but managed to get it done before rain set in for the evening. After touring the campground, we agreed that site 61 was our favorite because of the privacy and large yard space (both worth forgoing a sewer connection in our opinions).
Our primary reason for selecting this campground was its proximity to Savannah. It was a great hub for the activities we did throughout the week, but we also got to explore the park itself. The new visitor/interpretation center is beautiful! The trails behind it are very accessible and diverse. We saw lots of wildlife including deer, rabbits, squirrels, birds, and crabs. We also enjoyed the Big Ferry Trail, a three-mile loop with various historical sites along the trail. This was also a very easy trail to hike. This is a great campground for bicycles. The playground was nice and located near the visitor center (away from the campground). Although we didn’t use the bathhouses or laundry facilities, they were all very clean and well appointed.
Anyone wanting to visit Savannah would find this a lovely, convenient location! We highly recommend this beautiful state park.
