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.

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.

Beautiful park with long wide sites that are well spaced. Forget your satellite, there's too many trees, but they have basic cable. You should try to arrive early as they don't reserve specific sites so the earlier you get there the better the selection. Also some of the interior roads have some tight spots around trees so if you have a big rig use caution. Easy access to Savannah. Will definitely return. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

We loved this place. Nice and clean. Big sites. Nice people. We rode our bikes outside the park and by the UMC church to wonderful bike paths by the Villages. The only reason I gave it a 9 is because after 30 minutes of trying to get TV via the cable I called the front office and found out that only units 2 and part of 1 were able to get it. Tip - eat at Pearls (great food). We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park with large spacious campsites. The way the sites are set up is great because you don't feel like anyone's right on top of you. We were not able to connect into their internet from our site but the staff pretty much explained that when we checked in. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

We heard a lot through the grapevine about this park, so we braved memorial day traffic for a long haul here - totally worth it. The first thing we noticed were the sites were spaced out so we were not on top of each other. Couple that with the very old and mature trees covered in Spanish moss and you have a awesome atmosphere and lots of shade. Hookups are older, but clean and functional. Sites are very level. The campground worked on having as many pull thru sites as possible so parking is a breeze. Campground three had a awesome playground close too or visible from almost all sites on the inner loop near it - we pointed to it and told the kids to go run amok. There are some very cool hikes at the state park, if you go to the observation tower and walk around it to the marsh you can watch 100's of Fiddler crabs scurrying around. They have good activities, I recommend the night hike. NOTES: Of all Ga State Parks this is the busiest for camping (per head ranger) so plan in advance. Gates close at 10pm and you need a passcode, so if you run late because of traffic call ahead for code. Regardless of what old maps you see of the grounds there is no swimming pool. If you are coming from Atlanta on I-16, note there is 32 miles of construction where they collapse down to one lane. Con: The only reason I didn't give this a 10 is the restrooms on Campground three could use some TLC - they are definitely clean but things like shower heads could be fixed or replaced. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Nice state park. WIFI at ranger station. Bathrooms and laundry were very nice and clean and good proximity to Savannah. Loved the Spanish moss!! We would return if we travelled through this area again. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful campground. Our site had full hookups and was very large. Loved riding our bikes on the trails. About 15-20 minutes to Savannah. It had rained and we did notice several sites that were a wet and muddy mess. We didn't like the drive around and find a site approach. We didn't have a problem but I could see were it might be frustrating. 50 amp power was good. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice campground in a beautiful state park. The place is very clean. Sites are large with plenty of space between sites. No-see-ums were bad in the morning and at night so take bug spray. We would stay here again. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great state park convenient to Savannah. A little pricey but the scenery and location made it worth every penny. All camp personnel friendly and informative. Large sites under forest canopy. Wi-Fi limited to the camp office area so of limited value. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park, with very old oaks arching overhead, located in the marshlands. Sites are very clean and kept neat. The biting gnats were out in force and very hungry. Pick up some bug spray at the Kroger 3 miles up the road. Reserve early if you want one of the 17 full hookup sites. This park is convenient to Savannah and only 25 min from Tybee Island. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is the nicest state park I've ever seen. We were only here one night and it was cold and rainy so we didn't get to explore the whole park. But the trails I did go on were very nice and well maintained. The site was huge, level, with pea gravel boxed in 'patios'. It was in the full hookup section that had everything, including cable. Definitely want to come back again for a longer visit. The price I listed is approximate. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.
