We found this to be a just spectacular place to camp! We chose a shady camp site with water/electric that was extremely private in a lush forest. I could have just sat there and looked at the wonderful birdlife and green trees forever! The bathrooms and showers were very clean and nice. We were only here for 2 nights but found it to be a great base for exploring Savannah only about a half-hour away. There are several sites here with full-hook-up but it appears that they need to be booked far in advance. We made our reservation about a month early, and it seemed to us the campground was either full or almost full. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Skidaway is a heavily-forested campground with mostly water and electric sites; Spots are allocated on a first-come basis. All are pull throughs. The few full hookup locations are booked months in advance. Rangers will identify the couple of sites open enough for satellite TV. Our space was level. Downtown Savannah is a short drive. Tour buses will pick up at the park. The only wildlife seen on a short hike were birds, squirrels and a couple raccoons. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Old Savannah is worth a couple days' touring. Tour buses are hop-on, hop-off, and a ride through town will help map out which of the many museums and old houses you will want to visit on foot. Bee's Barbecue near the park should not be missed by anyone who likes smoked pork and beef.

Wow, second visit in about 5 years and it is so beautiful. We love this place with the pull overs, beautiful trees and wonderful place to stay. I would rather stay here than visit Savannah again, although it is a great city. We have visited Savannah lots of times, but Skidaway is amazing. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed five nights, and chose this campground based on others' ratings. Our visit included extensive touring and kayaking around the Savannah area. A 20-30 drive to downtown, but allows for a quiet retreat. Lots of trees, so forget your satellite, but they have reasonable cable. Sites are gravel/sand and fairly level and not well defined - do not plan to arrive after dark! I'm not sure you could identify the sites. Limited full hook ups, so we had to unhook and make a run to the dump station - bit of an inconvenience. We would stay here again. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice park. Heavily shaded throughout, with good spacing between sites. Area is open however, so no privacy separating the sites. We'll definitely stay here again if we return to Savannah. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Extremely nice State Park. Huge full hookup 50 amp pull thru and back in gravel sites. All are level and have fire rings and nice tables. And a state park with Cable! Large trees prevent satellite. Interpretive Center and many trails for exploring. Convenient to Savannah (about 15 minutes to downtown). Cell service good for hotspot. Will stay here again.

There is also a one time $5 parking fee. Paved roads with mostly dirt or gravel pads; with raised concrete pads for picnic tables. Very shady with mostly hardwoods means no satellite reception; however, area #1 has very basic cable, whose analog choices are the same as you can get in digital OTR. The sites are mainly pull through and quite a number with 50 amp. There is also 20 or so premium sites with gravel and are hug and the park is certainly big rig compatible while still offering nice tent only sites. It is not close to the Atlantic ocean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Verizon service was 3 to 4 bars. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

They make many activities for n nature lovers, a few nice trails, and a interpretive center. The Savannah Trolley makes stops there Fridays and Saturday mornings. Touring Savannah is a plus as is visiting the other historical parks in the area. Three Island about 15 miles away.

Although a little pricey for a state park, it continues to be outstanding. Sites are large, and "full hookup" site have sewer and cable. Trails are beautiful, as is the entire park. We stay here every year visiting family for the holidays and will be back...highly recommended. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

This is an attractive park with beautiful trees and marshes. The staff is excellent, professional, informed, polite. The park is very well maintained.

There are several small trails and boardwalks. Some of the trails are quite wet and even under water when the tides are relatively high. There are bike trails too but the park is small and it doesn't take long to ride them.

We enjoyed the interpretive center and the presentation on venomous snakes of Georgia.

The sites were level but some did not drain well. Our site was huge and many are quite large.

The sites are all under trees and we had a 5 foot limb fall on our roof one night which broke a light fixture inside by knocking it loose from the ceiling. It fell in a very fortunate way otherwise we would certainly have had more damage.

The parks is isolated and quite.

The park is surrounded by gated communities so you can not walk or ride a bike outside the park other than to the upscale sterile shopping center at the entrance or go to the oceanography center. This was pretty disappointing to us given how small the park is.

I rated our site satisfactory because it had a wet area right where you would want to put your awning out and because we were damaged by a falling tree limb.

The ranger station where you check in has wifi but it is marginal to non existent data bandwidth.

I would rate this big rig friendly.

We will probably not return to this park but did enjoy our stay. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit the interpretive center and attend the venomous snake presentation or any other presentation scheduled.

Visit the Oceanography Institute.

Really a beautiful State Park in a beautiful city. We enjoyed almost everything here except the sub-par bathhouses.

They were clean, but run down and for some reason had no concrete walkways to the bathroom. You had to walk 20' through dirt/mud to get from the road to the door.

Very shady sites. Many of them huge. We had a large pull-thru with full-hookups. Which is unusual for a State Park.

The grounds of the park are lovely and the people were helpful and friendly.

It's sort of big-rig friendly with some very large sites. But it is tight with many large pine trees. And, somewhat dark because of the trees as well. Forget using your satellite here.

Now, if they'd only improve their bathhouses it would be a "9" rated State Park. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Savannah is a very lovely city to visit and walk around. Dozens of neighborhood "squares" in the historic district and a delightful place to aimlessly wonder around.

Wonderful state park. Everyone I interacted with was very helpful and courteous. Yes the rest rooms are older but clean. Take older and clean over new and dirty. Cable worked well as did Verizon cell/data service. Will definitely return if in this area. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Price was for a 50 amp site without sewer. This park was a great surprise! The sites are huge and located under big oak trees. We were given the choice of picking out our site, something we like to do. We were only here for one night, so appreciated the long pull-through site. We will definitely be back for a longer stay.

One of the few state parks we have stayed in that has some full-hookup (includes sewer). Close to Savannah. Very close to two groceries and fuel. Staff at office/store very receptive and helpful. This was our second visit and will not be the last. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.
