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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful park with spacious sites, friendly and helpful staff, and excellent facilities. We reserved a full hook-up site, which included cable. Highly recommend this campground.....we are already planning our return. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Very pretty park with large, mature trees and Spanish moss everywhere. The sites are nicely spread out although some are a little tight to get into due to narrow roads with trees right on the edge of the road. Nonetheless, we saw everything from a small tent to massive class A's so there's something for everyone. We had a full-hookup site. You select your site on arrival so when we arrived at 5 PM (check-in is 1 PM) only two sites out of a possible 17 were available (on a Wednesday!). We were guaranteed a site since we had a reservation. Our AT&T cell phone had a usable signal but sometimes it was weak. Cable TV is available for the full hookups only however we received 16 or so channels over the air. Each bathhouse has laundry facilities, and there is a nature center. There are also several walking trails. Savannah is a quick 15-minute drive while a Kroger supermarket is about 5 minutes away. There are also a few pizza places that deliver to the park. Firewood is a little pricey at $6 a bundle from the camp store, which has very limited provisions. There is an entrance gate that closes at 10 PM, however they give you a code to operate it after hours. Most of our stay, the weather was dry and cool so mosquitoes were nonexistent. Once it got a little more humid, they returned but not so bad that it spoiled our stay. The nearest beach on the ocean is Tybee Island which is about a 35 minute drive. This is a very nice facility and one we would not hesitate to return to. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at Skidaway Island State Park while we were visiting Savannah, it's only around 15 minutes away from downtown. They have REALLY long pull-through sites, which makes it very easy to park your car in front or behind your coach. There is also a fair amount of space between you and your neighbors, plus each site has plenty of trees between you and your neighbor. The park and all the sites are very shady so our coach stayed pretty cool during our stay. It's very peaceful and beautiful with a lot of great trails you can walk, bike, or jog. They are very dog friendly, you can take the dogs on all the trails and roads in the park too. They only just started adding sewer to their sites so only around 10 have full hookups while the rest are water/electric. Our full hookup site was great and everything worked perfectly. The staff is friendly, all the campers are quiet and respectful of each other. There are a lot of mosquitoes here, you need to use insect repellent generously if you don't want to be eaten alive. There is also no wireless available at our site but we got great signal for AT&T and Verizon cellular. There is a one-time $5 park fee for your vehicle (not your RV). It allows you to come in and out of the park at any time. We really did enjoy our stay here and would stay here again. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Great, quiet well shaded park with flat sites that are plenty big. Many of the sites are a bit curved or too small to position a big rig, especially because of all of the trees, but all the sites have lots of room. Some are closer to the road than others and most will have difficulty with satellite. Although cable is listed as available to all sites, we couldn't get it at ours. Luckily, since it was a rainy weekend, I had picked a site where we could position a portable dish as I noticed a number of others had done. It seems this cable issue has been going on for a while; hopefully it will be fixed soon. All of the sites have a nice level tent pad. About 1/4 of the sites have sewer and about half of all of the sites are 50 amp. Once you check in you drive around and pick a site based on what type of site you reserved based on availability. There are some nice trails and an interpretive center. It is about a 15 minute drive to Savannah and the park supplies directions. Very good senior rate, be sure to ask if they don't ask you. I would have given this campground a 10 if the cable was working. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.
