Camp at Skidaway Island State Park

Details

Added by Clare Healy

Enjoy Georgia maritime forest, salt marsh, and proximity to Savannah in this scenic and family-friendly state park.

Skidaway Island State Park is a peaceful setting rich with wildlife. A conglomerate of maritime forest and salt marsh, this gem offers all kinds of opportunities for enjoying the outdoors. 

We sought out this State Park due to it's proximity to downtown Savannah, but it turned out to be far more than an ideal location. As we drove into the park, we immediately knew it would be a place we would want to explore just as much as it's surroundings. 

With each campsite surrounded by groves of Live Oaks with their drooping, curvaceous branches and draped in Spanish moss, this area itself feels iconically Savannah. With miles of hiking and biking trails stemming from the campground itself, you could easily occupy yourself without leaving. 

But it would be a shame to avoid delving into the history of downtown Savannah, basking in the famous oak avenue of Wormsloe Historic Site, or indulging in the tasty cuisine of the South. 

Campsites and camper cabins are available here, each site clad with water, shore power, a table, and a fire pit. The campsites are spaciously spread out so privacy and silence are perks that each visitor comes to appreciate. Bathrooms are fully equipped with showers, laundry options, and more for those on the road.
