Skidaway campground is my best camping experience ever! Yes, it was July, too hot and quite buggy, BUT the large sites, the tree cover, the walking trails, the helpful staff, and the fact that you're in Savannah (great town to visit) make this the IT park for me.

You have a huge Publix grocery store 2 minutes away, a pharmacy, gas, and shopping in the same "The Village" complex.

Need something at Skidaway, just ask the staff, and they'll steer you in the right direction.

Should also mention the good road system. Getting around is easy on the island and the mainland, and LOTS of services within 20 minutes.

Skidaway...very close to perfect!!!! We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Stayed here for a total of 6 days. Sites were OK. We had a full hookup site the first 4 days, then moved to water and sewer and cable site for 2 days. Layout was confusing as the way it is setup. Have to come in on the road both ways depending on which site you are on. Bathrooms and showers were older but clean and good enough. Lots of shady areas on most of the sites. Very quiet the whole time. Plenty of room for big rigs, but some trees are close to the road on both sides so have to watch carefully. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The 8th Air Force Museum is a great place to spend some time, have a good lunch at the café on site.

All the restaurants and stores are close by for convenience.

This is very expensive for a state park. $39 a night for electric and water only. You can get cable if you're In the right loop. Full hook ups cost even more. Most expensive state park we've every stayed in, by a big margin. Plus you have to pay a $5 parking fee for 1 car. Other then that it's a nice park, very shady and buggy. Roads can be a bit tight but very manageable. Staff is awesome. If you're here just to visit savannah the their are commercial campground cheaper and closer to downtown savannah. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

While looking for reservations on-line for this park, I was baffled because it never asked for the size of my RV. Upon arrival, I realized why--each site is HUGE. A 45' motorhome towing a 25' cargo trailer would have room to spare on virtually any site here. Our site was larger than many of the city lots we saw in historic Savannah. Plus 90% of the sites are pull through with no extra charge! There are many tall trees in the park, and many hiking trails which we did not have time to explore. Our site was level and had 50 amp service, water, and cable TV. There is free Wi-Fi at the Ranger Station, which was a short walk from Loop 1. There were sites with sewer, but none available during our stay. Only real complaint were the ancient bathrooms. The shower heads must be original to the buildings. The baths were clean, just very tired and in need of revamping. The location is convenient to Old Savannah, and an excellent choice for touring the area. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

It appears this park is used mainly by folks visiting the area, to use it as a base camp, and not as a camping destination. Most campers are gone during the day and very few cook outside or have campfires at night.

The park is an older park, but has been well maintained. Its layout is spacious and pretty, although some roads are narrow and difficult to maneuver if you meet someone. They are not one-way roads and I think the reason is because some campsites cannot be accessed but from one direction, but others on the same road are accessed from the other direction. Good spacing between most campsites. The bathrooms are old and need updating but are generally clean. Thick tree coverage, so satellite reception is very spotty. Bottom line, if you are visiting attractions in the area, this is a good pick; if you are looking for a camping experience, I recommend any Corp of Engineer's (COE) park in the Southeast. Now that we have seen the park and visited the trails, we probably won't be back unless we want to visit the Savannah area. There are better values in COE parks.

Very good trails and an interesting interpretive center. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Like shellfish? It's worth a trip to Tybee Island (about 30 min away), to go to The Crab Shack just off of Hwy 80 (this is NOT Joes Crab Shack). Interesting place, besides the food being good.

Excellent state park on the edge of Savannah.

There are only 18 full hookups and they are costly. The rest of the sites are water and electric only.

There is no Wi-Fi at the sites but there is a hot spot at the office. Very inconvenient. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice clean and well maintained campground in a heavily wooded area. Check-in was easy with pleasant park employee. Our site was level, long (80') with FH, fire pit and picnic table. Savannah is an easy 15 minute drive. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

We liked this state park campground. It is woodsy, the sites are huge and wonder of wonders - we have 50 amp service and would you believe we have cable? We also have water but there is no sewer (there are some sites with sewer, which you can reserve). We actually used the camp showers and found them very clean. The bathrooms in our area need some work and I hear that they are being replaced in the near future. The sites are level and large and have a substantial raised platform for a picnic table, which is provided at each site. It is tree-covered and shady but some sun filters through. There are some nice trails throughout the park. Our neighbors left at 9:00 and at 9:30 there was someone over there checking the site. We would definitely return. Reserve in advance since the park is popular. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, spacious campground. We were in a site with full service. The campsites were very clean and ours was spacious. Easy access to Savannah, Tybee Island, Fort Pulaski and Wormsloe Historical Site. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go by Leopold's in Savannah for wonderful ice cream. Highly recommend the trolley tour. This enables you to get an overview of the beautiful historic downtown Savannah and then go back to visit the places that interest you.

We are relatively new campers - this was by far the best campground we've been too. Exceptionally clean. Even the gravel picnic table/firepit area at our site appeared to have been raked clean. Hiking Trails were great. Plenty of room. Great location. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out Tybee Island Lighthouse.

Sandfly BBQ is nearby and very good. Great cupcake shop around the corner from there, too!

Our first time at this park. So far this is one of our favorite Georgia State Parks. The staff have all been fantastic. Big open sites, full hookup with 75 feet between our sites. Great for visiting Savannah and the surrounding area. Easy access from main roads. Great hiking trails to the inter-coastal waterway. Have not used the facilities but have been told they are nice. We are in spot 28, a huge pull through. Level sites with almost complete shade with huge moss covered oaks. Might not be good for satellite but most sites have cable and many local stations over the air. This will be one of our frequent stops. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Savannah with sightseeing and shopping.

We stayed in one of the 50 amp w/sewer sites. Enormous pull-throughs, quiet, plenty of oaks and moss. Very clean and level. Electric was stable, but could not get the DirecTV to find a hole in the trees. Limited cable (no Fox otherwise would have rated a 9), OK over-the-air, 3 bar Verizon voice and Jetpack service. You have to pay an additional $5 park fee for the toad. State Park employees were engaging and informative. Our rig is 43' long. Would come back here with a few movies. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

First of all...Follow the Park entrance signs! Our GPS led us to the closed gate of a community with a tough u-turn! Use the relatively new Truman Parkway to 204 to get to I-95...GPS might not show Truman Pkwy. Also, you've GOT to go to Mrs. Wilkes House for brunch...look it up! We loved the Old Town Savannah tour Trolley...book it on-line and save some bucks. They have free parking the day of your tour, and getting on and off often while exploring old downtown was great.

All the sites are spacious and the newer full hookup sites have sewer and cable. The setting is absolutely perfect with large trees and mature foliage. This was our second stay in this park and we will stay here again. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Very close to downtown Savannah and all that it has to offer.
