This has become one of our go to parks in this part of Georgia. The vast majority of the sites are large and clean. Many in Loop 2 have 50 amp and complete hook ups but not all so check ahead. The bathrooms are new and spotless. the hosts are very friendly and always out keeping things clean. The lake is beautiful and excellent for fishing and kayaking - kayaks are available for rent at the ranger station. We have stayed here at sites 35, 36, and 26 - all were excellent. There are many hiking trails and lots of geo-caches if you interested in that activity. The nearest grocery store is a WalMart just to the wst side of I75. But if you go on over into Adel there is also a Piggly Wiggly and a Harveys - always like to support local business. Drives are easily maneuverable for most any size of rig. Most sites have cable but I got the same channels on OTA except in the pouring rain when I got nothing!! All-in-all, a great campground. We camped at Reed Bingham State Park in a Travel Trailer.
If you are there on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night - go to the Catfish Place Restaurant right outside the park. They have excellent fried catfish, hush puppies, and other southern delights. Some nights there is live music outside and everybody is family. Also when you are going back towards Adel, stop at the Red Barn produce stand back off on Roundtree McCrane Road - a red clay road that takes you back to a red barn. They are a commercial farm and whatever they are picking is for sale and chances are it was picked that morning. We have had amazing strawberries, field peas (Aunt Sallies), fresh onions, and the best homemade strawberry ice cream.

We stayed for 3 nights from April 17 to April 20, 2018. The weather was awesome with clear skies and a persistent NW wind that kept things wonderful. The views from our site included the entire lake and not much else - it was perfect. The park is small and some of the turns are a bit tight but we made it around without issue (Outback 328rl). There are lots of hiking trails and kayaks are available for rental. The entire park is large and has an excellent area to hold something like a church youth mission trip in an area that has multiple cabins, a cook house, and even a place for church services. There are two bathrooms in the camping area proper - one older and one newer. The newer one is very nice. The older one is older but it has hot water, it is clean and the toilets work!! Hey - you are camping - who cares if the bathroom is older. There is an excellent dog park near the ranger station that has areas for both large and small dogs with plenty of fresh water and toys provided. We did a fair amount of geo-caching on some of the trails but someone before us had done an impressive job of really hiding the caches well. be prepared to really look and bring a poking stick!! We will come back. We camped at Laura S. Walker State Park in a Travel Trailer.
The closest shopping area is a Super WalMart about 10 miles away. It is an easy trip to that store with virtually no traffic. The store was clean and the people were polite.

Skidaway Island is one of the premier Georgia State Parks. It is located on posh Skidaway Island and surrounded by a rather affluent suburb of Savannah. The park is very nice and the majority of the sites are very large. As you get towards the back of the park, the sites get smaller and seem more overgrown and not as well maintained. However, the newest bathroom is at the rear. When we were there, one bathroom was closed and being completely remodeled. The front bath was very old and needed work but it still had hot water, the toilets worked just fine and the laundry facilities worked well. It is apparently the next one to be remodeled. Skidaway is very quiet at night. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.
There is a Publix very close to the left when you exit the park as well as two really good churches right at the entrance. Savannah is close and there is lots to do there. Also check out Lucky Supermarket for the best bacon in the world!! Castaways Restaurant is excellent and the Wormsloe Plantation was very interesting.
