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.

Skidaway State Park is a great place to camp. They have a nature tour with a Park Ranger that takes you through a salt marsh and marine deciduous forest.

Huge sites. Bathrooms were so clean. Had nice facilities and trails. We were here in July, in a tent, with a lot of rain so that dampened out spirits. But I would love to stay here in October as it would be perfect.

This park has it all: peace and quiet, very nice hiking trails, lots of wildlife [deer, birds] and of course, beautiful oaks and Spanish moss.

Yes and the sites are really large . When we were there we bought the Georgia State park pass which gave us 2 nights free so we paid less for the 4 nights we stayed. Beautiful
