Trip Planner: USA / Georgia / Georgia Coast / Savannah / Skidaway Island State Park
With trails for hiking, biking, and birding and facilities for camping, Skidaway Island State Park provides a picturesque setting for exploring Georgia's maritime forest and salt marshes. Amble through the forest, marshes, and sand dunes on the 1.6 km (1 mi) Sandpiper Trail or the 4.8 km (3 mi) Big Ferry Trail, and grab your binoculars to spot egrets and painted buntings on the Colonial Coast birding trail. The park rents bikes if you prefer to pedal around. Kids can entertain themselves with three playgrounds, and they usually find the park's 6 m (20 ft) replica of a giant ground sloth especially enthralling. In addition to regular camping facilities, the park also rents camper cabins. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Savannah holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Skidaway Island State Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Skidaway Island State Park reviews
Beautiful park. We went in the morning but park was not crowded. If you plan to hike the trails, all are easy but make sure you have bug spray.

We loved camping here! Our site was a back in gravel driveway with a large gravel pad which had a large picnic table and ring. The site was large and only one neighbor next to us and one across...

This is a beautiful, well maintained park. Only $5 to park your car, and free if you have a GA State Park pass. I love the various loops and trails, and they are short (1 mile each). There are always plenty of nestled hidden treasures to explore. This is the perfect place to take family, as a couple, or solo. I saw several joggers, hikers, campers, and families enjoying this beautiful park. I recommend for anyone who wants a bit of nature and an easy, flat trail.
Beautiful Park. Large sites. Clean bathrooms with shower. I was site 15. A big rig would not fit it this site due to passing between 2 close trees. This park could be a 5-star park except for the tightness of trees and the road condition. Be careful when choosing a site. Look at pictures first. There were also coyotes in the woods, so be careful of pets and small children.
