Heavily wooded campground that was less than 1/4 full in early August. Other than 4 back-in full hookup sites, all the 70 others were pull thrus. The sites were all very large with a raised tent platform and cable TV hook-up. There is a boat ramp to the Inter-coastal waterway less than a mile away and a shopping center with banks gas station and a Publix market less than a 1/2 mile in the other direction. This is very convenient for a visit to Savannah. You get to pick your site as they are not assigned when you make a reservation. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Close to Savannah. Beautiful park but expensive for a state park. We were in site 34, which was a pull thru with full hookups and 30 and 50 amps. Easy in and out from the park, but a long drive from I-95. Utilities were good, had a table. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park, huge pull-through sites, full hook-ups, lots of space and privacy between sites. Check-in was difficult as they don't assign spaces and you have to drive around looking for tags on posts which was a challenge with a motorhome and tow vehicle. No wi-if, no satellite reception in our shady spot. Great Publix grocery store next door. Easy 15 minute drive to Savannah. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Park was clean, full hook up, 50 amp & cable, never heard of a state park with cable. We were able to pick up over the air antenna but no satellite. The park was close enough to historic Savannah. You can reserve a spot but it is not site specific. You pick from available spots for your reservation type when you arrive. We would stay again.

Very nice Georgia State Park with full hookups on the site we had. Interior roads are paved with easy access. Sites were heavily wooded and very private though not completely level so some leveling will most likely be required. Very peaceful place to walk and bike and take in nature while within 20 minutes to downtown Savannah. WiFi only at the office and your stay will require a additional $5 park entrance fee. Great for getting away from it all in nature if that's your thing. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

If you go to Savannah you must walk Bull Street and the City Market area as they are charming and pretty with many shops and restaurants.

Lovely state park. Our 50 amp, FHU site was a very spacious horseshoe pull-thru. Lots of trees for a woodsy effect and privacy. Plenty of room for walking the dog. Very quiet, however we were there during the week. Nice, friendly check-in. Our site had limited cable channels, but no WiFi. Good Verizon cell service. We will definitely be back.

Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful parks around. The oaks are stunning. Sites are spacious and spotless. Power tends to be on the low side, about 108 volts for 30 amp. This was our second visit and we will continue to return. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a gem. This is a beautifully maintained State Park, with helpful and friendly staff at check in. It has 70 pull through sites with water and electric and 17 brand new sites with water, electric and sewer. Interior roads are paved and pads are crushed gravel. Big rig access was fine, but anything over 40 feet might be a bit tight. Our pull through site was very spacious, it was about 150 feet long, so lots of space for our towed. We had a large crushed gravel pad with a picnic table and fire ring. Wonderful old oaks draped in Spanish moss, and lots of wildlife to watch. Bathrooms are modern and clean, and each camping area has one washer and one dryer outside by the bathrooms. Last time we were here it was very quiet, however this time we did hear some noise from planes from the nearby base. No satellite or WiFi but there is an adequate phone signal. There are some lovely trails to walk your pet as well as plenty of doggie bags and disposal stations. Walmart, Kroger, and Lowes are just down the road. Only 15 minutes from Savannah, so restaurants and great sightseeing are not far away. We would stay here again. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

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.
