Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah

4.6
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.

  • Awesome place to check out of the city for a bit. Great trails to walk/run or bike. $5 parking pass is required. There are lots of fun events held throughout the month if you're looking to get active in the outdoors. Bike rentals and camping is also available along with convenience shop for snacks and supplies. Beverage vending located outside of office
  • Beautiful location in the Savannah suburbs with tidal marsh on one side and a McMansion community on the other. Campground itself is secluded and quiet. Obviously the staff takes pride in the place. Sites are large, wooded, and well maintained. We had deer wander through camp. Bathhouses are pretty much new. Every time I went in, I was impressed with the cleanliness. Campground secret: I believe the staff are involved in a Jurassic Park program to bring back the giant ground sloths that used to roam the area. A source in the next stall at the bathhouse says there are actually several breeding pairs on the property and that they are Federally Protected. When one slothed through camp and started slowly going through my cooler, some guys in a golf cart pulled up and made my wife stop poking it with a spatula. Be sure to get the full story from the ladies at the office before you check in.
