One of the best State parks in North America! Lots of space between pads. Get the pull throughs with sewer if you can, they are HUGE! Nicely paved roads, each site is very clean. WE had no problem getting our 41' 5th wheel in and out. Bathrooms are a little dated, only reason I didn't give it a ten. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of those campgrounds that you just say "wow" as you drive into it. Live oaks line the road, giving it that special sense that this is going to be a special stop. Very shady sites that are very level and roomy. You can see all of your neighbors but you still have the sense of your own space. Check out the nature trails and the interpretive center. Very friendly and professional staff. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice State park and perfect for exploring Savannah and Tybee Island. Sites are very large and spacious. The pull thru sites with full hook up site we stayed at was at least 70' long and more than amply wide for our slide outs. Sites are well spaced, not jammed together giving a feeling of some privacy. We would stay here again if in the Savannah area. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The $27 average rate listed above is much lower than my charges in late May, 2017, so I'm listing RV camping charges. With a senior discount I paid $34.50/night for a two night's stay. RV camping costs $40/night. A 20% senior discount is available for people 62 and older. No military discounts are available. There is also a Parkpass fee, which costs $5.00/stay, so with no discounts one night would cost $45 and two nights $85. The parkpass is attached to your rear view mirror and works for other parks within the dates listed on the pass. I consider the Parkpass to be a car pass. Other discounts are available: There is a Georgia State Parks RV Club brochure available free in park offices or gift shops, which allows an occasional free night's camping. Ask for a sticker for each day before leaving, and put them on the Stay Sticker page in the Passport. When 10 stickers are applied, you are eligible for a free night. 18 Georgia state parks are listed in the brochure, not including Skidaway Island, but I got a sticker for each night's stay and had the impression I would be eligible for a free night if I had 10 stickers. A $50 Georgia annual Parkpass can be purchased, with 50% senior and 25% military discounts available. If you intend to stay over a weekend, be sure to check the park's reservation link (uses ReserveAmerica) for availability ahead of time. I arrived late Sunday afternoon, and the following Thursday through Sunday was booked. As others have said, this campground is an excellent place to stay, and prices are reasonable for this area. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great place to stay in the Savannah area. The ride into town is very easy and convenient. Although it's on an island, you cannot get to the beach here. You have to drive to Tybee Island to get to the beach. Most of the island is a private gated community and there is nothing to do there. There is a small shopping center on the island for supplies if needed. The park does have some nice nature trails and an interpretive center. Although you can reserve a space, you cannot reserve a specific site. You get to choose from the open ones available when you arrive. 17 of the 70 spots have sewer available and are in Area #2. All of the sites with sewer have 50 amp service. 33 additional sites have 50 amp service and are located in Area #1 and #3. None of the sites in Area #4 have 50 amp service. The sites in Area #4 are also best for smaller rigs. If you're over 36 ft, you might want to avoid Area #4 if possible. Water pressure was low, but acceptable at 40 psi. Cable is available, but did not have local channels. Antenna service was excellent though for the local channels. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is one seriously beautiful Georgia state park! Besides being very convenient to the amazing old city of Savannah, this park is a destination in itself. Full hookupsites 26-41 in area 2 are all big rig friendly, but avoid 42-51 as they are not level or on the small side. If you don't need sewer, the sites in area 1 are large to huge with more privacy and most are big rig friendly. Very dog friendly park with bags/waste stations throughout the park and about 7 miles of gorgeous walking trails that allow dogs. We did have sattelite reception on our site (36), but I suspect that's unusual due to tree coverage. Verizon was decent. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

This is our second visit to skidaway State park and as per our previous year ago it is just a beautiful location. Quiet peaceful spacious sites. Our site was more than adequate for a 20 foot trailer and there was also an area at each site where attend could be placed comfortably and large picnic tables are included. Apparently there are some sites with full hook ups but we have never been able to reserve those. The restroom near our site was quite outdated but that was clean. They do have laundry facilities here but we did not take advantage of those on this trip. It was nice to see that they rented bicycles at the park office. we had brought ours and did not need to do a rental. There are some hiking trails and we tried out a portion of one. You are close to Savannah about a 20 minute drive with also a Kroger grocery store just down the street. I did forget to mention they do not have Wi-Fi at the sites but you can get Wi-Fi if you go up near the park office. There is cable available at each site. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We loved this park! Gorgeous natural setting. Lots of spacing between sites. Bathrooms in our area (camp ground3) newer than the others in 1 & 2, but all very clean & totally adequate. Convenient drive to town (15 mins) and there is a Kroger grocery store just before entry to skidaway island and a publix which only took me 20 mins to walk to from the park itself. Best feature for us was finally having recycling facilities available. Sadly lacking most places. There are a Few trails in park (6 miles worth in total) which make lovely spots for evening walks. Highly recommend this park We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground with long pull-through sites. The sites have a large amount of room on both sides for family activities. This park is only 15 miles from the center of Savannah, GA with some of the most beautiful city parks anywhere in this great country. The water pressure was a little low but all the other hookups were fine. The price is a little high but the proximity to Savannah and Tybee Island make up for the cost. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

A lovely park about 30 minutes outside Savannah proper. The campground has 4 loops and it was recommended that we stay in loop D which is the furthest back and most private. All the sites looked pretty spacious. There is still some tree work going on to remove trees and limbs that were destroyed during Hurricane Matthew. The bathhouse was quite clean and also includes a laundry facility. The campground has a bus that takes you downtown Savannah but only on Fridays and Saturdays. Uber does come here though and we used that to go to the visitor center and take trolley tours of the city. Beautiful city to stroll around with all the parks and nice restaurants as well as beautiful houses. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Very pretty park. Campsites are spaced out a bit, but of varied size -- some are huge; some rather small. Also, you don't reserve specific sites in advance; you choose of the open ones when you arrive. Latecomers beware. Most are NOT full hookup, (i.e., with sewer) so make sure to reserve that type when booking if you so desire. Amenities are very nature-oriented -- trails and a nature center; a few playgrounds. Camp store is very limited, so come equipped. Savannah isn't too far (30 min), and worth a day trip if you've never been. You are further from the beach (45 min) than you would think. Overall, it's a great back-to-nature trip, and a good launching point for a visit to Savannah. Having been here now, I'm not sure we will make a point of coming back again, but if you've never been it's quite a nice little destination. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We wanted a place for a base for our visit to Savannah and this was perfect. There are lots of sites, each site has a lot of room and space. The hiking trails are awesome; flat, well marked, perfect length, and lots to see. Some recommendations: 1st, sign up for the Friends of Georgia State Parks membership before you go. You get two free nights right away, a discount on any remaining nights and free park admission. 2nd, if you are staying more than a couple nights, go ahead and spend the extra couple $ for the sewer site, they are roomier and very convienent. 3rd, be sure and follow the directions on their website, it will make it a lot easier to get there.

Loved this park. About 12 miles from Savanah, but it was so nice and easy to get to (although there is some road construction once off interstate). We were in pull-thru site, with plenty of room for our tow. Hookups were conveniently located for our RV. Staff very pleasant and helpful at check in. They advise which sites are available and you drive around and pick out the one you want. Plenty of space between sites. Hurricane Matthew caused some tree damage that they are still clearing out, but it doesn't affect the campsites. There are nature trails and a lot of space to ride bikes in the park. Savannah is about 20 minutes away. Will definitely go back to this park. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.
