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 here 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 here 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 here 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 here in a Tent Trailer.

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 here in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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 here in a Motorhome.

Would be a '10' except have to go to the park office for Wi-Fi. Everything else is absolutely perfect. Staff are great. Lots are huge - bigger than city house lots. Now that they have sewers, although only on 17 sites, it's wonderful. Nice hiking trails. Paved roads. Full-service sites are either pull-through or pull-around ("C" shaped) except for two back-ins. About a 15 min drive to historic city centre on good roads. Good luck booking, though. They say the full service sites are essentially 100% occupied. It's worth reserving months in advance. Price is $40 per night less 20% for seniors. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful setting. Easy to navigate roads. Pull through sites large enough to fit a couple of big rigs. Wildlife sightings at night include deer and racoons. Mature landscaping and plenty of space between sites. Close to Savannah. In addition to the site fee, there is a $5 parking fee. Your type of site is reserved, but when you arrive you just pick an available site matching what you paid for (you cannot reserve a specific site). This is probably the best place I have ever camped.

Lovely state park campground, located about 20 minutes from downtown Savannah. The entrance is lined with live oaks covered in Spanish Moss, and each site is divided by more live oaks and greenery. We stayed in a pull-through site. There is a lovely trail in the park which leads to an observation tower overlooking the marshes, which you can walk or ride bikes. We loved it and would recommend it wholeheartedly. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is our favorite park and it just got better with the addition of the full hook ups. We think the remodel of the full hook up sites came out very well. Very long pull throughs. Plenty of room, fire rings, terrific setting. Great hiking trails and can be in Savannah downtown in 15 minutes. We were here for Thanksgiving weekend and I will be adding a separate review for new cabins since we put our in-laws in a cabin for weekend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very pretty park with lots of Spanish Moss draped live oaks lining the roads, hiking/biking trails and even most of the campsites. We had reserved one of the newly renovated full hook up sites and they were almost too good to be true. All the sites are large and well spaced from each other, but the full hook up sites were upgraded with crushed stone pull-through sites that must have been 90 feet long. They included a large crushed stone area with picnic table and fire ring. The rest of the sites (with only water and electric) were large dirt and grass sites. Some of the regular sites were quite large and well separated from other sites. There are several miles of trails for hiking and biking through the forest and through the salt marsh. This is a very nice park. And convenient to downtown Savannah. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is like camping in the woods. Only site that will let you use an "on the roof" satellite dish looks to be site #21 - all other sites have no clear view towards the south. Good Internet from own Verizon based system. Roads are very narrow in places, so watch for overhanging branches and leaning tree trunks. Camping area #2 is all refurbished and will offer the best spots including sewer connections, but all of this area was not made available to us when we arrived. Easy drive to down town Savannah. We took our own car there and unpacked our push-bikes from the trunk. Nice way to see everything. Head for the down-town Tourist Information and start looking for parking meters here.

What a gem. This is a beautifully maintained state park that borders the Skidaway narrows, a part of Georgia's Intracoastal waterway with 87 pull through sites. Some have 30 amps the rest are 50 amps. The road is paved and the level pad is hard sand. We found big rig access to be okay, anything over 40 feet might be a bit tight, but we had no problems, and have certainly been in tighter spots. Very quiet with plenty of space and privacy around the RV, wonderful Spanish moss draped live oaks, lots of wildlife to watch, concrete pad with a picnic table and fire ring. There is water and electric but no sewer. No satellite or Wi-Fi but there is a good phone signal. Bathrooms and laundry are clean, modern and well equipped. Lots of trails to walk your dog and plenty of pick up bags too. Only 15 minutes from Savannah, on a 4 lane highway, so food stores, restaurants and wonderful sightseeing are not far away. Staff were helpful and there is a security gate. We would definitely stay here again.   We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a great state park, clean, good personnel, and scenic location. It is a plus that it is close to Savannah. The walking trails were well-maintained and attractive. The site we stayed in was a pull-through. There were lots of trees - no satellite TV, and privacy was not perfect. They were working on building new campsites and upgrading things.

Very nice State Park. Regular nightly rate was $28. Seniors get 20 percent off. Skidaway island is an upscale area south of Savannah. Sort of hard to get too with alot of traffic construction in the area, but worth the time it takes. Sites are in a wooded area. Older sites are dirt with no sewer. They have a mixture of 30 and 50 amp sites with cable at most. They are just completing 10-15 full hookup pull-through sites for big rigs. Fairly good access to Savannah, about 15 miles to downtown. Enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We camped here Feb. 2013. All of the sites are good sized pull throughs with most having a nice amount of privacy. There is work being done on section 1, so that was closed, and there was a temporary dump station. The road in and out is one lane but two ways. We didn't have any issues with this, but I could see how it might be a problem if two RVs were coming from opposite directions as there isn't much room to pull over to allow anyone to pass. It also requires you to circle around and come back the other way if you are going the wrong way to pull into a site. The nature trails are beautiful, and there are miles and miles of them. The bathrooms are in great condition and were very clean. It's about 15 minutes from the historic district. It's a great park for nature. We would stay here again if we are in the area.

This is a GA state park on a barrier Island just south of Savannah that has fresh and salt water estuaries and marshes. It is on the Intracoastal Waterway bordering the Skidaway Narrows. You can get a senior discount, but then they charge you a $5 daily entrance fee so it evens out. The park sits on 588 acres with 87 electric and water sites. There is a visitor center, swimming pool, playgrounds, hiking, and biking. Cabbage-Palmettos are everywhere and this campground is known for its migrating birds since it is on the Birding Trail. All the sites are shaded with Spanish Moss hanging from them. You can reserve sites but it is not site specific. Most of the sites are a good size. The bathhouse that we were near looked like it was new – very nice! Nice park. bit bit off the highway, but it is worth it once you get here. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. Shame you can't reserve a site because if you're in a big rig you may not be able to find a spot sometimes. We saw tents where large RV's should have been. We couldn't get satellite where we were but did get some local channels. Fairly level spots, pretty large. They are working on some sites so some areas were closed. Very nice walking area. Saw deer one morning at our campsite. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Really enjoyed our stay. The park is very wooded and quiet. Lots of walking trails to explore. Sites are fairly level and hard packed. We did not use the bathhouses but they looked to be in good condition and clean. Access to the park during the time we stayed was a bit difficult because of road work on Skidaway Island. Traffic in the mornings and late afternoons was pretty bad. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is our first time camping in the Savannah,Ga area, this is a great campground for your first visit. About 20 minutes to downtown Savannah, about 35 minutes out to Tybee Island. Sites are mostly level and lots of shade. Cable hookup worked fine, you get about 12 channels. I didn't find anywhere that a had WIFI signal though this site said it did. We were here the first part of October and it rained a lot on Saturday, and our site partially flooded. Some were worse than mine but it soaked up pretty quickly and wasn't a huge issue. They have built a new comfort station up by campground #4, very nice and very clean. It has a family bathroom that can come in handy if you have small children and can bath them all together. The bad about that is that when you are in the shower the WHOLE bathroom floods. It has a drain in the shower stall and in the middle of the room, but most of the water runs to the middle of the room and it takes the long way to get to the drain, henceforth flooding the bathroom. There is no place to set anything off the floor, no benches or shelving. so bring what you have to and put it on the back of the toilet and hope it doesn't fall in or in the sink. Overall great park, plenty of room for kids and pets to run around camper. They have 3 playgrounds, all are approved by my 2 yr old. This will be using this park every time we come to the Savannah area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Once you get through Savannah from the North, park is easy access. Nice hard surface roads though out park. But, a large RV will have to be very careful driving through the park, sharp tight turns. Many pull throughs and spacious. Easy and quick access to downtown Savannah 12-15 min drive on 4-lane. No satellite coverage, too many trees. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We camped here in a 30' Toy Hauler. Great location for visiting Savannah! Park is heavily shaded with dirt pull through sites. Interior roads can be a challenge for a larger unit. We camped in area 4 near the new restroom facility. Toilet area and showers were very clean and nicely planned. showers had private dressing areas. We used the laundry facilities that had new equipment. Several nice, flat hiking trails in the park. Adequate dump station along the main interior road. The park is located on an island that is shares with a high end, gated, golf community. We would definitely visit her again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is a real nice park in the Georgia state parks system. Internal park roads are paved. All campsites are pull-through, but there is no sewer at individual sites. There is a central dump station. Sites are dirt/gravel and each site has a raised tent area and fire pit. There is cable TV at each site, with a 15 channel selection. Sites are spaced far apart. There is no Wi-Fi and even my AT&T cell service only had one bar of signal strength. The bathrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. The showers are nice and large, but didn’t drain well and got the changing area floor wet (we used the newest one in the area with 60’s number sites). The park is easy driving distance to downtown Savannah and the surrounding islands and has several hiking trails within the park. Bring your bug spray because the no see ums are plentiful. The nightly rate ($22.40) included a senior discount from the $28.00 fee, plus a $5.00 parking pass for all of the days we stayed. If you have a Georgia State parks pass, it covers the parking fee. We would stay here again if we visit the Savannah area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

They could use more hooks to hang your stuff. No problems with bugs. I expected mosquitoes but there weren't any, except for a couple if you stopped long on the trails.

If you are looking for peace & quiet, Skidaway Island State Park is the place. Even over the July 4 holiday this park had many empty sites. All sites are large, sandy, level pull-throughs with a substantial canopy of trees so there is nearly full shade all day. Each site has a fire pit and a raised platform for the picnic table. Good utility hookups. No issues with insects other than mosquitoes - typical for the locale. As noted in earlier reviews the interior roads are a bit narrow but easily navigable so long as you take your time. Office staff very friendly and helpful both in person and on the phone. Restroom and shower facilities very clean and look to be relatively new. The park pool was closed; the sign said "due to budget cuts." We prefer full hookup sites but we'd gladly stay here again. A good value for the money. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

I can honestly say that this is one of the most beautiful campgrounds that I have ever stayed in. The layout is impressive and was obviously designed with a lot of thought. I took away one point only because all of the sites are not big rig friendly despite being advertized as 50' pull through. That being said, there are plenty of sites and very few tight spots and, if you drive cautiously, you'll be good to go. The proximity to Savannah is excellent and the downtown area has parking garages that will accommodate large tow vehicles. The rate reflects a senior citizen discount, which they extend to all seniors, not just Georgia residents. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the best campgrounds we know of. You camp in a forest where Spanish moss hangs from the trees. Some sites are mostly sunny which is nice in winter and spring but later you appreciate all the shade you get. Sites are spacious and offer good privacy. No sewer on sites. What we like best is the 14 day stay limit, so you have no permanents camping here. Wi-Fi is only at the rangers office that's our reason for the 9 instead of a 10 rating. Staff is very friendly. It is very quiet at night. Comfort house 3 is new, the others are also clean and well maintained. The rate doesn't reflect the 5$ parking fee you have to pay once to enter the park. We'll come again for sure. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Our stay at Skidaway Island State Park was amazing. The park is so beautiful! Heavily treed with live oaks dripping with Spanish moss and inhabited by lots of squirrels. The camping slips were large and spread out. There are some slips with 50 amp service and all have water, cable and fire ring; however, none are full hook up. This was our first experience with a dump station. It was centrally located and easy to use. We purchased a honey wagon for this 2 week stay and it offered a lot of convenience for not moving our 40’ motor coach. I had read a few reviews that this campground was not big rig friendly, and I disagree. The roadways were well laid out and nicely maintained. The only thing I would mention is the loop we stayed in (the first loop) did not indicate a direction and frequently rigs came head to head and one would have to back up. We stayed in slip 5. We did not utilize the convenience stations, although we did look at the first two and they were clean but older. They are in the process of building a third convenience station in camping area 4. The trails were great for hiking and biking and in addition, there is a paved path virtually around the entire island. Bring your bug spray and enjoy this outdoor haven.

Nice park with paved roads and sand/dirt/grass sites that are level with lots of room to get in and out of. The roads appear to be tight but you can get through without a problem. They have a limited number of 50 amp hook ups and they have signs at them asking those who don't really need 50 amp to take another site, but when they're close to full it all goes out the window. Sites are large with a fire ring and picnic table. Showers are hot with good pressure. There is Wi-Fi up at the office. Verizon and MiFi work well. Nice trails, a cool skeleton of a Giant Sloth, and the remains of several old stills. Well located to go into downtown Savannah and Ft. Pulaski. It's pretty quiet but on some nights to can hear the far distant thump of artillery from the bases in the area. Almost sounds like distant thunder, but on a clear night you can discount the thunder theory. We camped here in a Motorhome.

As others have said, this place is great. We had a huge site and all sites are secluded from the one next to it. The only draw back to this park is the lack of assigned sites. While they ask when you check in to occupy 50 amp sites only if you need that type of service, there were several tents and pop-up's in those sites. In addition some sites are not conducive to large 5th wheels or motorhomes, and as a result some campers who arrived late were forced into small sites because the park was full. I believe they should charge based on the service you want and assign sites based on the equipment you have. We would stay at this campground again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Our things to add to the GLOWING reviews for this great campground are: - nice-looking rangers patrol in gold carts; gate locks & closes at night (you get a security code) - you can have campfires, but don't bring wood they a big pack here for $6 - Well-constructed bathhouses with exhaust fans + INCREDIBLE water pressure in showers (you may actually have to turn it down or it stings!) - one of the 3 bathhouses is being renovated right now - so brand new ones are coming soon - washer/dryer costs only $1 but only 1 ea machine at each bathhouse - your sat. dish prob won't work / trees (park does have basic cable ~ 13 channels, works well) - AT&T phone works pretty well; Verizon pegged (on both phone and MiFi / 4 bars) - suggest you break out the bug spray and hose out a perimeter on the ground around your rig - we tried to get in on a Friday night, big mistake - no spots avail AT ALL till Sunday night {make reservations on-line, works very well}. Excellent space layout, very private {nobody within 100 feet of us at least!}, good water and power, great showers, easy to maneuver in/out, cheap! This place is worth coming to - don't miss it. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This has to be the most beautiful state park that we have camped. The sites are all pull though and have electric, water and cable TV. The sites are all large and have a pad and/or a tent pad, and fire ring. The bathrooms and showers are clean and comfortable. Access to Savannah is easy. It is an area with much traffic but still easy to travel around. The park is a great stopover park and if sites are available for an extended stay, a great place for a longer vacation. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is the best campground we have ever seen. Gorgeous, spacious sites, quite a distance from neighboring rigs, with clean restrooms and showers, friendly staff, easy access to downtown Savannah, wildlife, nature trails, a great paved bike route, and more... We stayed 5 days and hated to leave. No Wi-Fi in campsites, but it's available at the park office, a short bike ride from the campsite. Idyllic. Everything I imagined in an RV campsite.

This is undoubtedly the best state park we have ever found. The sites are spacious and not jammed together. All sites are pull-through, which is a huge plus. Sewer connection is the only thing missing, but a dump station is available. Nice shade trees and a very quiet environment. Handy to downtown Savannah and the other islands in the area.

Georgia State Park that is more like a commercial RV park (in a good way). Good electric, water and cable TV at this State Park, no Wi-Fi that we could find even though other reviewers had it. We were camped in loop #2 and used our portable Hot Spot since cell service was fine. Great level parking spots, spotless bath house with one washer and dryer at each bath house. Located on acres and acres of park land with lots to do and only a short drive to Savannah's historic district. The park office sells basic camping supplies and the ranger we talked to was very helpful and friendly. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

What a beautiful park to stay. Literally surrounded by trees the sites are spacious and way apart from each other. Good level and good access to hookups (electric, water, TV-cable). Dump station on the way out. No Wi-Fi except at the entrance office, that's why we don't rate it a 10. But there are nice trails, bikes for rent, an interpretive site and very friendly and helpful rangers. We stayed two weeks in total and it was always quiet and pleasant (even on Labor day, when every site was occupied). Washrooms and showers were clean, a little dated though. It's a 20 minute drive to the Savannah historic district but only 3 minutes to a Krogers supermarket. We already look forward to coming back in November. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

The huge trees with lots of Spanish moss and the other thick vegetation make this a beautiful park, plus we saw deer, squirrels, lizards, and birds. The GPS got us close, then we just followed the brown signs. Recommend entering the intersection of Diamond Causeway and State Park Road. We were really excited about a state park with cable TV but half the stations didn't come in at all, and half the ones we got were so fuzzy we couldn't watch them. Then the first night, a thunderstorm completely knocked out the TV, and it didn't come back (at our site anyway) until the last of the 6 nights we were there. But we didn't care, because the park was so beautiful. We didn't even mind having to unhook and go to the sewer dump, although it was a little inconvenient. The sites are all shapes and sizes, but all are beautiful, level, spacious, and shady. It was so very quiet and peaceful. Downtown Savannah and Tybee Island are both just short drives away. The roads in the park are very nicely paved. They have a pool, but it was closed. The restroom was typical for state park - basic cinder block with shower curtains - but clean with good pressure and lots of hot water. The staff was happy, relaxed, friendly, helpful, accommodating. I would definitely stay here again, and want to bring all my friends and family. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet campground with plenty of shade trees with spanish moss. Just a beautiful southern plantation setting. All sites are pull-through and level. Heavy rain with localized flood warnings the first night, but sites drained well and quickly. Be aware of trees if you have slides, as some sites are difficult to park/maneuver. Not many campers when we were here and the pool was closed. Second night, the camper next to us played loud music until 2am. Not sure if anyone complained but no music after that. It was extremely hot and humid so didn't spend much time outside. We used the campground as base for touring local sites. Convenient to Savannah and Tybee Island and 2 hours from Charleston. Only negative was that there were plenty of insects and we ended up with ants in our camper. Recommend plenty of bug spray. Overall liked the campground and would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful heavily wooded, very shaded campground with very large pull through gravel and dirt sites. RV sites are generally level and have a very large raised tent pad, fire pit and picnic table. Roads are asphalt and wind through the trees. Some very large rigs may have difficulty maneuvering through the roads in a few places so be alert. Camp hosts are doing a great job on keeping sites and roadways clean. When we were there, it appeared that the pool had not been opened yet. It is convenient to the Savannah downtown area. Wi-Fi hotspot was available at the park office. There were not a lot of washers and dryers at the campground, so if you need to do a lot of washing, you may have to wait on ocassion or go to a washateria in the area. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is now our favorite state campground. The sites are HUGE and some are quite secluded from others. Our only problem was finding a SAT signal for our Windguard Carryout, but we did manage to finally get one. There are lots of trees, so big rigs need to be careful driving thru the smaller roads in the park. And they do have cable TV at each site. You are quite close to Savannah and Tybe Island.

This large state park borders part of the Intracoastal Waterway and offers well-spaced pull through sites. About half of the sites offer 50-amp power, while the remainder have 30-amp. There are no sites with sewer access. Cable TV is provided, offering a high-quality signal of approximately 15 major channels. The park offers several trails which allow visitors access to maritime forest and salt marshes. This pastoral setting is within 10 miles of downtown Savannah, and makes a superb base for exploring the city. If you intend to camp here over a weekend, I suggest that you reserve a site in advance.

This campground is great! Big generous sites that are almost all pull-throughs. Popular with everyone from families to retired couples, tent campers, pop-ups, travel trailers, fifth wheelers, and big Class As. Lots of bike riding opportunities, and plenty of space for walking dogs, etc. Grocery store is 5 minutes away and downtown Savannah is about a 20 minutes drive. Lots of shade. Would give this place a "10" but shower stalls lack hooks to hang clothes and towel, and no place to put soap and shampoo but on the floor. BUT... there's cable TV! Would go back there for sure. Highly recommend. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Previous reviews have covered most items. Be sure and take your rake as the sites are covered with leaves and the various critters that live in them. Nice self guided nature walk. We stayed here three days and were able to go into Savannah in about 15 minutes using the Truman Roadway. Tybee Island is a short drive. If you go be sure to see the fort and climb the lighthouse for the view. There is a public parking lot and a nice beach across from the lighthouse. However, if you purchase the Lighthouse / Museum ticket, you can park at the lighthouse parking lot for free. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Skidaway Island State Park is a beautiful setting with well-marked trails for hiking through a southern woods to a lookout on the intracoastal. Reservations do not identify a specific site -- it's first come, first served -- we were glad to have arrived shortly after check in time at 1 p.m. All sites, mostly spacious, are pull thru, but the paved campground roads tend to be narrow and some sites have overhanging limbs that make them unfriendly for Big Rigs. The drive from I-95 is too long for just an overnight, but this park makes a great location from which to base several days of Savannah touring. Wi-Fi was available at the park office pavilion but not at the sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Staff all around are helpful and friendly. Some guided tours are available in the park and there's a small museum in the Interpretive Center. We had made reservations via phone and were allowed to pick our own site from the ten available at the time. Don't forget to visit the Fort Pulaski National Monument when you're here.

We have no complaints about this park. It was a very nice stay. Every spot is big. The pool is closed due to money shortage. The trails are nice, but a lot of roots so be careful on a bike. The showers are old, but work good. If your out pass 10pm you can get back in with a gate code (it took me forever to get a answer to that question). There is Truman parkway right down the road that starts here and ends in downtown Savannah. Takes 15 min. Kroger is up the road. Its not for a over night stay from I-95 to far, about 30 min. It was also sold out when we were here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

The state park is great with some wonderful trails which are great for children, they are very flat and well maintained. The playgrounds in the park are great as well. The campground is large and the spots are spread out with plenty of trees, they are fairly level. Nice fire rings and picnic tables are at every site, of course a sewer hookup would be nice.

We stayed here a week during our second stay at Skidaway S.P. The tall trees and Spanish moss make you think you are camping in the forest, but just outside the gate is all Savannah has to offer. Historic downtown is about 20 minutes away, you will find a Wal-Mart Super center 6 miles up the road, and a Kroger Store is just 3 miles from the gate. The sites are very large giving you privacy, plus the park was only 20% full while we were there in December. Our Verizon Air card worked well while camping here. The Comfort Stations are a bit old, but extremely clean; they even smell clean, and they are heated during cold weather. There is one washer and dryer located outside and at $1 per load, its a bargain. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They have a small camp store in the office, not for milk and bread, but it does offer some interesting items for children. Be sure to visit their Interpretive Center while you are there. The price we paid was with a Senior discount of 20% and they do charge a one-time entrance fee of $5 for your stay. We definitely will return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Skidaway Island State Park is a great place to stay if you like some Georgia shade under the oaks. Site’s for motor homes appear to be all pull through and they are organized in nice manner. It might be hard to recognize how to park after dark without reviewing the way other motor homes are parked. I didn’t bother to make a reservation in August and there were plenty of spaces available. 50 amp power is available on selected sites only so if that is important study the map. Park is about 12 miles from downtown to the south east and allows you to feel you are really out close to the marshes even though there are very nice residential areas nearby. I will stay there again if visiting the Savannah area however if just passing through for the evening would probably bypass this state park for something closer to I-95. Park staff very nice and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Wonderfully large, pull-through lots. Despite a significant amount of rain while we were at this campground, there was a noticeable lack of puddles and bugs. The towering oaks with the hanging Spanish moss are impressive. Bathrooms were OK, not great - they could use some updating. The park was less than half full when we arrived early on a Friday afternoon, and there were still many empty spots over the weekend, so July is apparently not their busy season. It was about half an hour drive from the campground to fabulous Tybee Beach, where our family spent quite a bit of time. I'd camp here again, but my husband wants something closer to the ocean if we are going to spend that much time on the beach. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

We used this park as an overnight stop. It has a lot of trails, and things to do, but we were short on time. We did bike the 3 mile loop trail, that has the lookout tower on it, and it was quite nice. No sewer hookups, but we dumped at the dump station on our way out. It was raining when we showed up, so we got a lot of dirt and leaves in our rig, but that was not unnexpected. The sites are all very shady, and the staff was very helpful. The one thing we noticed, was that the roads are pretty narrow. My birdwatching wife spotted 3 birds she hadn't seen before. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 5 nights while we visited sites around and in Savannah. Skidaway campground is heavily wooded. Has a number of trails. Most of the campsites are pull throughs as a loop off of the campground roads. Care must be taken for some sites, since there are large trees along the campground road making tight conditions. The campground is very quiet, with little road noise heard. Frogs and toads were the noisiest creatures we heard at night. The entrance gate is closed at night, but you are given a gate entry code for late return to the campground. The shower rooms are old, but cleaned daily. WiFi internet is available 24 hours a day near the campground check-in office. There are no sites with sewer hookups, but there is a dump station. A very natural and scenic campground with much space between the sites. A campground host is on site. There are some washers and dryers at the shower/rest room buildings. There is a nature center for the kids, along with the various nature trails. We found that over the air TV reception was better than the provided cable TV hookup. Our daily rate included a discount for being senior citizens. We could drive to downtown Savannah in about 20 minutes from the campground. There is a gas station and grocery store within a mile of the state park entrance. Skidaway Island Campground is now on our top campgrounds to visit list. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We had a wonderful time. Most of the sites had tree cover and the bugs weren't too bad. Some of the roads are tight to maneuver in a large rig. Sites are level and have adequate privacy. Some sites that are pull-thru sites will require you to go the wrong way in the loop to allow your shore power connection to be on the same side as the power/water pole.

We like the state parks. They are cheaper and much prettier overall than their commercial counterparts. And this one was pretty too, and we enjoyed the hiking/biking trails. However, I preferred our stay at Crooked River. But if you want to be in the Savannah area, this is a good spot. As with Crooked River (and maybe all the GA state parks), there are only a few 50amp sites, and not all spots will fit 40ft rigs, so plan to get here early if you want those things! Also, beware of Wormsloe Plantation! The history of Noble Jones is very interesting, and the movie they show is quite good, but if you take a camera that looks like it cost you more than $500, they will ding you $25 for a photography permit, even if you're NOT a pro looking to sell your photos (and that's on top of the $5/person entry fee)! I was shocked and felt ripped-off, and I wasn't the only visitor that felt that way, trust me! I ended up just taking in my cheaper point and shoot, but if my hubby hadn't been with me, I probably would've just left! Also, if you're into alligators like I am, then visit the Savannah NWR. A 4-mile drive along rice fields with gators in or around the irrigation canals. Very pretty and fun spotting the gators! The CG price reflects a senior discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Skidaway Island is a great state park within easy driving distance of Savannah and Tybee Island. The park is heavily wooded with large clean sites with each containing a sanded tent platform, picnic table, and fire ring. Selecting sites at this park is first come first serve. Your reservation only guarantees you'll get a site. We arrived on a Saturday around 2pm during the month of April and only had to drive around a few times till we found a site that would accommodate our rig which is 32 feet. All of the sites would accommodate smaller rigs in the 20 foot range however larger rigs in the 40 foot range would be well advised to arrive early. There is no sewer at the sites but a dump station is available. A portable holding tank is useful if you're going to be at the park more than a few days. Electricity was constant and without surges. The swimming pool was closed during our visit as others have mentioned. The park contains several excellent nature trails and a bike path is nearby. The rate indicated was the senior rate as we had one in our party for this trip. The only negative we found with this park is the lack of sewer connections at the site but for the price our expectations were exceeded. We will definitely be going back to this park the next time we visit the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful park! Many of the sites are pull-through and each site has a tent pad, picnic table and fire ring. The trees are beautiful with a lot of hanging Spanish Moss which creates a lot of shade. The roads going into and within the campground can be navigated by most RVs. We saw a 42' tag axle RV in the park, so it was obviously not a problem for it to navigate. There are many birds, and we even heard an owl the night we were here. This is a great park to ride bikes in, with plenty of places to ride. It is a good idea to make a reservation. We had a reservation, but the couple in line at the registration desk in front of me did not have one and were turned away. You are guaranteed a spot with a reservation, but not a specific spot. You get a list of available sites and you just drive and pick the one you want. Just a note, though, we camped after the area had a lot of rain, so there were many sites with mud where you would have to pull the camper through. Otherwise, you should be fine. We actually had a site, #47, that was huge. What might be a drawback to some, was that the dump station was actually along one side of the site. It was never a problem for us, since the site was so huge. Also, there were a lot of biting gnats during the day this time of the year, but with bug spray, it wasn't a problem. We can't wait to come back here again. It was very peaceful and very beautiful! We camped here in a Motorhome.

This campground is interesting. The sites are big, but, you have to go through early and find your site that you think you can get your RV and TV in. A lot of sites are tough for big RV's to get into. Very quiet campground, and very nice. March and April are the busiest times. There are a lot of trees, and they kind of put the campground in around the trees, which is cool. Very nice campground, and I would come back.

This is the third year we stayed at this park and we continue to find it one of the nicest state parks we've ever stayed in. All sites are water/electric/cable pull throughs, but none have sewer connections. The sites are spacious and well shaded although we had no trouble setting up satellite TV on a tripod. Savannah is about 13 miles away via a limited access highway. Savannah is simply an exquisite city, a pleasure to visit. In the last half of February, the park was sparsely occupied, but by mid March it becomes quite busy, especially for the wildly popular St. Patrick's Day celebration in Savannah.

This was sort of an odd campground. Very pretty, and well kept but put together odd. All the sites are pull thru, but of all different sizes. They let you drive around until you find an open site that you can get into and just park. The roads are narrow and run both ways, so you have to be careful of not running into someone coming the opposite direction because there is not always a place to go as it is very tight. Some turns are very tight if you are towing or a larger rig. You usually have to go around the loops to get lined up for the dump. It is a nice park, but would not rush back to camp there again.

I have mixed feelings about this park. I have never seen a campground set up like this before. All the sites are pull throughs located parallel to the road. Yes, many of the sites are spacious and some, depending on which side of the road you are camped, are private. Many larger rigs do camp here but the location of trees within the site make it impossible to pull through some sites. Some of them would have to be backed into/out of. Campground loops are two way with very narrow roads with trees close to the road and I am not sure what would happen if 2 rigs met each other. They do have a large parking lot where you can disconnect and drive through which is a big hassle for a 5th wheel. Camp hosts did not interact with campers. Comfort stations (bathhouses) are old but clean. Dump station is located in a weird location. We had to exit our loop and drive all the way around the park to access it because it is in the middle of the park, not on the way out. Not sure if we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

As we travel, we very carefully evaluate RV Parks. We rely on other opinions too, and we have not been let down. So when we say Skidaway Island State Park is a 10, we mean it. Pulling into the park the first time, after driving through the upscale and wonderful scenery of this island, we still weren't prepared for the wonder of Skidaway Island State Park. It's truly like being in Savannah without the houses, noise, and sight-seeing trolleys. Each site has it's own seclusion filled with shady trees with hanging moss. We were welcomed by friendly park staff, and we were able to select our own site. We enjoyed our 3 day stay, would return without hesitation. Although, they only have electrical and water at each site, the dump area is easy and close. If you are in the Savannah area, be sure to stay at this great RV Park. If you are traveling by car, drive through, and enjoy. Great for walking too. Staff has good directions for driving into the Historical district of Savannah, about 12 miles away. Be sure to following the scenic route of the two choices given on the driving instruction sheet. Their suggestion to park at the Visitor's Center worked perfectly for us. RVs are welcomed at the Center. We were able to catch the sight-seeing trolley in their parking lot. Great area, great park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Stayed here while attending a convention in Savannah. We were pleasantly surprised with this campground. The pull through sites were all quite manageable. Although you really have to be on your toes getting a big rig around the trees. The trees were amazing. Our biggest problem was not the campground's fault. Savannah in July is oppressively hot. The campsites were very spacious and not on top of your neighbors. We would definitely go back. Hopefully during a cooler time of year. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Nice GA State Park under large oak and pine trees. This park has the most shade you will find anyplace. New asphalt roads in park make a great place to ride your bikes. Roads are flat and level. Sites are a mix of dirt and some gravel. Sites are close to level, have a table, and fire ring. Cable TV and 50 amps on a total of 22 sites. We could pick up more channels over the air than the cable system. I think cable had two or three channels that we could see. Free Wi-Fi at the office only and you have a table to set at. Sat dishes will not work here. You may find one or two sites that have a hole in trees. Dump station sits in middle of park. You will need to past dump, do a U-turn and come back to get in if you are in front of park. Staff was nice at check in and fast. Playground equipment for the kids. Nightly rate was for seniors. I checked swimming pool, close and green as a swamp. No gators in pool yet. You now have a nice wide turn lane to get into park from Hwy 204 spur. All road work is complete. Gates are locked at 10:00 pm. Verizon cell phone to the top. You will need a GA park pass to get into park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Skidaway Island State Park for two nights and really enjoyed it. All of the sites were pull throughs which helps us since we tow a Jeep. The sites were also fairly large and all were in a wooded setting which provided a lot of shade and helped to keep our site cool in the summer heat of Savannah. The park was well maintained and very close to the Intra-coastal waterway boat ramp if you are traveling with a boat. We had a very pleasant stay and would highly recommend this park.

Price reflects senior discount. Once again, we found a Georgia State Park to be lovely. The atmosphere was quiet with lots of trees and oversized lots with plenty of space to move around. We had no trouble getting a 50 amp pull through site. The bathhouse was clean although a bit outdated. We would camp here again. The cable did not work.

Very peaceful and nice park. Narrow interior roads but passable. Nice folks. We had to make several circles within the park to line up for the dump station on the way out. We have a 39ft 5th wheel. Cable TV was somewhat fuzzy but usable and nice since we could not use sat TV for all the trees. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again, although not long term due to no sewers. Nice large lots situated as pull thrus parallel to roads. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We agree with previous reviews. The interior campground roads are narrow (one lane size) for two way traffic. Trees are trimmed but some came very close to touching the sides and top of our 12 foot high motorhome. The roads are manageable, just take it slow. Satellite reception was extremely difficult due to all the trees. The cable was fuzzy with about five viewable stations. There were 10 digital (over the air) stations. The sites are large with curved pull through. The sites are mostly dirt so be careful in wet weather. Bathrooms were a bit aged but clean with separate curtained change area outside shower. It is a reasonable 15 minute commute to downtown historic area. The biggest drawbacks are no sewer, only one dumpster for entire park and only one dump station which got very busy on Sunday when everybody was leaving. There is road construction at the entrance area of the park (making new turn lane into the park) so traffic was a little congested. The current turn in/out of the park road is a little tight due to construction barriers. The mosquitoes were bad bring lots of bug repellent. The pool was not open yet. We would return.

Different people like different camping experiences: for us this park was perfect. The roads others are complaining about, are in fact one way. At check-in the ranger gave us explicit direction on the roads. So if you are met by an oncoming rig, one of you is going the wrong way. I've never seen sites this large in all out travels. Cable TV wasn't great and we could have used a sewer connection, but that's to be expected in a state campground. Bathrooms were clean; there was a good laundry and a nice camp sink. We had site 51, was about 100 by 200 with total privacy. The park is close to downtown Savannah and Tybee Island. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is an outstanding park. The sites are huge, and often nicely shaded from neighbors by natural vegetation. All sites are pull through, have a 15X20 foot raised, compacted, and raked sand surface for tents. Cable consists of 12 channels, all the networks plus a handful of independent stations, all watchable. We received the senior rate of $20 per night for being 62 or older. Wi-Fi is only available at the ranger station where people are invited by the staff to make use of the Wi-Fi there. A reservation means that a site will be held. Once you arrive and check in, you can then take any open site. We think this is an excellent approach to site selection. This is our second visit to this park; we'll be back.

With a very few exceptions, sites range from large to huge. They can be muddy and somewhat out of level though. Some with full shade, some partial. Cell coverage was adequate and a dish will work from some sites. The WiFi was available only next to the office not from the camp sites. Access to Savannah is convenient.

Cable TV is a joke, very few of the 13 channels are viewable, we saw many antennas up. WI-FI was only available in front of the office, they do have a picnic table on the porch to sit and access the internet. Staff was friendly and helpful. It was hard to distinguish the campsite, lots of dead leaves, etc. You just ride around and pick wherever you want to pull in. This campground is "rustic" there is much fallen small trees and limbs to pick from if you want a campfire. The roads through out the campground are very narrow, fortunately we didn't meet anyone going in or out. No signs up so guess the roads are two way. Its a good $20 a night campground.

We loved this State Park. It's about twenty minutes from Savannah but access is easy via the Truman Parkway. The park itself is large and diverse. There are several great trails with good bird watching inside the park's inlet and also a few miles away at the wildlife sanctuary. Road were all paved, sites were manicured with pea gravel and nice tables and fire pits. The education center was great and all staff were friendly. There were at least three excellent playgrounds for kids and showers were very clean. We'd come back in a heartbeat. Dump station gets a bit crowded so it's better to leave before check out time or just keep an eye for opening. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed the campground. The hiking trails are nice, with plenty of places for bike riding, and many ranger lead activities. The campground layout can be confusing. What looks like should be a one way street is really two way. We saw one unit pull in the wrong way and had to run their hook-ups under the camper. They came in after dark and it is hard to tell since all the sites are pull through. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We chose Skidaway due to its proximity to Savannah (20 minutes). The park is beautifully kept, and the sites are very, very large and level. All sites are in the woods. Biking and hiking trails are wonderful. Wi-Fi was a surprise. It works perfectly: just park in front of the Ranger Station. Savannah is easy to get to and, although not as big and not as visually appealing as Charleston, it is worth at least a couple of days. If you visit in November, be sure to attend the Veterans' Day parade. Groceries are five minutes away, and the ever necessary Wal-Mart is only ten minutes. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the most beautiful state parks we have stayed in anywhere in the country. The entire campground is heavily shaded with lots of Live Oak trees draped with Spanish moss. All sites have basic cable TV and off air reception for all 4 networks in High Definition was excellent. All sites are pull through. There are two 50 amp loops but we chose a 30 amp site for a slightly sunnier location and had a very strong 120 volts. This was also one of the very few sites ( #46) where you could peek through the trees for the satellite. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed here for a week (I got the weekly rate with the over 62 discount) so I could explore Savannah and Tybee Island. The campground is very wooded as you would expect in a state park, but it was well laid out. Water, electric and cable TV (which was a nice perk) is provided. The sites are half circle pull-thrus that took a bit of maneuvering with my 40' motorhome but are certainly accessible. Sites are not assigned so you just drive around until you find an unoccupied one that you like. Park rangers/employees are helpful and friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.

One of my favorites this park is close to all of the area's major attractions. The grocery stores (two major one's) within 10 minute drive. If you want to see the beach and Tybee Island lighthouse or downtown historic Savannah you wont get any closer. Now, the staff are not to be underrated either. They go out of the way to assist in making your stay one you will remember. The cable television isn't that great getting only three or four channels, but I go there for the overall experience. Very relaxing, large shade tree's and best of all if you have a reservation and arrive after hours you simply go set up and return to the rangers station early the next day and inform them of your location! Seriously, this beats paying $250.00 nightly in the historic district and is much more entertaining. Ive made this a quarterly stop. The only reason I do not give it a 10 is because there are only a couple of sewage hook-ups and they are reserved for camp host. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This rate is with a senior discount. A beautiful state park with nice, big pull-thru sites. We had a 50 amp site with water, electric and cable TV. A nice mix between the rustic of a state park and some of the convenience of a private campground. At least when we were there, before Memorial Day, you could reserve a site, but not a specific one. You drove through the park and picked one without a tag hanging on the pole. Having never been to this park before, I don't know it that is the practice throughout the summer or not. Some of the turns in the roads in the park are a little narrow and you have to be careful making some of the turns. The gate closes at 10 pm, but you are given a code to get in should you come back late. I agree with previous posts. There was a picnic table on the raised pad for tents and a fire pit. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very nice park in a beautiful area. It's about 15 minutes from downtown Savannah via the Harry Truman Expressway.

The nature trails are mostly shaded and nicely posted. The roads are recently repaved and very smooth. No problem with big rig access. There are two sections with 50 amp service, the rest of the campground is 30 amp. There were a washer and dryer ($1 ea) in each comfort station that worked very well.

This was a great park, staff was friendly and just let us pick an empty site and that one would be yours: great! We were able to drive around and actually shop for the best site instead of looking at a crude map and trying to pick a good spot. The sites were very wooded and deer were in our site waiting to great us. There was plenty of room between the sites and it was not crowded at all. It was a great place to walk in the morning, deer everywhere. The sites were so,so level but not bad. They had a raised level pad on the sites for tent camping.

Great park. Just had ALL the roads repaved. Convenient to Savannah. Big celebration weekend- St. Patrick's Day parade. Sites are large, with plenty of space between them. Lots of places to explore in the area and within the park. Bathrooms cleaned once a day - campground was full everyday so sometimes they would get messy. People sometimes complain about the bathrooms not being clean but it's important to remember it's the fellow camper that has left it a mess - not the park.

Beautiful park, very shady. Even in March, the 50amp sites were scarce. The interior roads were recently repaved, but are narrow. If you have a big rig, you will have to go very slow. Couldn't get a satellite signal no matter how we moved the rig. The cable is poor, ABC is just static with shadows. Hiking trails are nice. There are no-see-ums here, so bring your repellent! The park is convenient to Savannah. We found the signage coming in to be just fine (brown signs with white lettering), so this problem noted by earlier reviewers must have been addressed.

We camped at Skidaway State Park this weekend for the first time and really enjoyed it. The location is good. There is easy access to Savannah and River Street. You do get to pick your own site, so the earlier you get there in the day the better. We arrived about 12:30 and got a nice site (#50). The only complaint we had is that upon leaving this morning, the dump station had a line five or six deep. We decided to dump somewhere on the way home instead of wait out the crowd.

Nice quiet park but badly in need of a Wi-Fi hotspot. The rangers strongly requested that in the comment sheet we indicate the need for the hotspot. Had to drive 8 miles into town as there is only one site that allowed a Hughesnet dish to get to the southern skies. They have cable TV, but it's awful. We ended up using the Winegard crank-up antenna. Bathrooms were spotless, staff was superb and they now have new ( but very narrow ) blacktop roads throughout the campgrounds, so maneuver slowly as you search for your ( you choose ) campsite. All are under the trees. Nice restaurant ( Carey Hilliards ) for good reasonable food. Tybee Island was small and undergoing lots of road repairs when we drove through it. We would come back.

Would just like to thank the previous reviewer for those directions. We got so lost trying to find this place we had to Walmart it (Montgomery Cross Rd.) the night before, just 6 miles away! Park is great, super pretty and mossy and lovely. Only thing wrong is roads are tight and there are no directionals on the roads. Otherwise fabulous. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent park for exploring Savannah and Tybee Island. Lack of sewer on site is the only drawback we saw! We have been there twice and enjoyed both visits. Ask about the senior discount if applicable. We camped here in a Motorhome.

What a fantastic State Park! One of the best we've ever been to. A 25 minute drive to Savannah's historic district. A major grocery store only a couple miles away. Sites are all pull-throughs (semicircular) that accommodated our 33' trailer without problem. The cable TV is limited to about 10 channels (no complaint). Sites are spaced very well with a lot of privacy. Very quiet in the off season. Inexpensive laundry, too. Great nature trails, though can be wet and you might have to turn back or take your shoes off. Live oaks throughout campground drip with the Spanish moss. There is construction on Waters Ave. at the time of this writing, so drive by Waters and take the Truman parkway south to Hwy 204, where the parkway ends and you take a left to get to the park - this snafu combined with really poor detour signage cost us about 1/2 hour of time...found out about Truman parkway after the fact...not sure why the State Park's website directions take you down Waters Ave. to begin with as Truman parkway is much easier for RVs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground was very nice. We arrived right after a bad storm. The office had been flooded so they were experiencing some difficulties. The bathhouse was clean but only one shower had hot water. Due to the storm it did not have electricity for the first day that we were there (so no lights, etc.) They did have an electrician in to fit it the next morning. RV sites are large with a lot of space between them. We were not assigned a spot and we were just told to go and pick one. Not sure how that works during their busy season. They do have a pool but it is seasonal. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very pretty park with beautiful shade trees. You pick your own site once you check in by driving thru which is fun. Got there late 7:30 and there were still a few very nice 50 amp sites available. Woke up to find 3 deer in our back yard and our girls had a ball watching them through the window. Great hiking trails, nice playgrounds for little ones and lots of paved roads for bike riding. Very big sites with lots of privacy. We picked site 68 and loved it. Would definitely go back when weather is cooler. Pretty warm and muggy in July with lots of mosquitoes. Staff was very helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We are big fans of State Parks and try to stay in them whenever possible. This is one of the nicest we have ever been to. All sites are pull throughs, have 30 amp, water and cable TV. About 20 sites have 50 amp service. None have sewer but there is a dump station located on the way out of the park ( be sure to come in with empty tanks ) Depending on how you pull-in your patio will be private or on the roadway. The sites are all large and contain a picnic table, fire pit and tent pad. The campground/park is full of trees which allows you to see you neighbor but still have privacy. The park contains a small visitor center with a bird viewing area as well as a pool ( fee ). There are 2 hiking/biking trails as well as the roadways within the campground. We travel in a 41 foot motorhome and the only negative is that it is a little difficult to make the turn into/out of the various campground loops ( there are 4 of them ) once in the loops there is no problem negotiating the roadways. We had no problems with the directions to this park, they are fairly straight forward ( one turn ) and Downtown Savannah with all it has to offer is only 15 miles away. We will definitely be returning to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

What can I say...I love Savannah and love this CG. We went to town one day and road bikes all day, leaving our vehicle at Visitor Center. ($1.00 an hr) Went on birding trail in CG & did 3.5 mile bike ride on the backside where bikes are allowed. Great shaded pull thru sites. Had a wonderful time. Large sites. Restrooms were clean. They have laundry facilities-which we used. We went over to Tybee Island to tour Light house & Ft. Pulaski. We love this park and we'll be back - I'm sure!

This is a state park, so it doesn't have "big city" amenities, but it does have nice, large spaces with lots of trees. It's a great base from which to visit Savannah and the surrounding area. We were here in the off-season (January), so insects were not a problem. They have camping from primitive (what they call "Pioneer") to 50 amps. They do need to do some work on the roads; there are some major "bottom scrapers" around. The park is a bit a of a hassle to get to since it's south of Savannah and not near the interstates. The route is well marked most of the way. Unfortunately, some of the major turn signs are missing so it's easy to get lost. (Park management knows about this but maintains they can't get the highway department to cooperate with them in replacing these signs). Our recommendation would be to take the I-516 to its terminus at Bull St. in town, then keep going straight on DeRenne to the Harry Truman Parkway. Go south on the Truman Parkway until it ends at Whitfield. Turn south (left) on Whitfield, which turns into Diamond Causeway, so it's a straight in shot to Skidaway island and the park. The park is not too far south of the bridge over the intra-coastal waterway, so keep watch for the next right after the bridge. It's a nice loop that goes around so you can have a straight in entrance to the park road w/o having to make a left turn. Once again, it's not marked; those darn highway people! We stayed here two weeks. We camped here in a Motorhome.

After reading all of the glowing reports about Skidaway Island State Park, we expected a nicer campground than what we experienced. The campsites were roomy enough, but were in great need of some sprucing up: most were quite unlevel, and it was difficult to determine where you were supposed to put the camper since it has been quite some time since any gravel was spread to mark the pad. We arrived on a somewhat rainy day, and many of the campsites were pretty muddy. Our electric box had two 30 amp sockets, but only one of them worked because the breaker on the other was not functional. The fire ring/grill, although new, wasn't too usable since the grill portion was about 12 inches above the charcoal. We had to build a roaring fire just to get enough coals to eventually grill our steaks. It's too bad that this park hasn't received some of the renovation that other Georgia State Parks have enjoyed. This is such a great location, and the park has such great potential, that it could really be a crown jewel in the system. We'll give it another try in a few months. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

If you like spacious sites under tall pine trees, then Skidaway island is for you. The park is beautifully laid out in the forest and is only 20 minutes from downtown Savannah. Download from the website instructions to find the park but plan to arrive in daylight, as it would be hard to find after dark. Even in October it was almost full.

We liked this park. Our site was huge, perhaps the largest we've ever had. It was very private and nice. The trees are very large and dripping with moss. The place was quiet and well run: no out-of-control kids, etc. The staff was helpful and informed, and the drive in to Savannah is easy. Finding the park from the Interstate is a challenge, you definitely need a co-pilot with good eyes for the small highway signs that direct you. We certainly would stay here again, if ever in Savannah. Restrooms were clean. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful State Park. There are a lot of pull through sites, but most are not your typical pull throughs, most are kind of a semi circle shape and not really straight. This type of site makes it difficult to park a large motor home. Roads are narrow, but manageable. I would not want to arrive in this park after dark because of the pull through site set up. We camped here in a Motorhome.

HUGE wooded pull-thru sites, nice grills and picnic tables. Paved roads. Nice for small children since door/awning faces away from road. Swimming pool OK, but NO shade and lots of non-campers swimming there. Nice ranger-coordinated campfire with stories, marshmallows. Close to Savannah and Tybee Island. Overall, enjoyed it alot, especially the nice, big sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

If you like a natural setting, you should love this park. Lots of trees, live oaks, spanish moss, and large private sites - all pull-throughs. The park has a variety of easy hiking trails, a large pool, a small but interesting museum, and an attractive, sizeable picnic area. The one and only drawback is the no-see-ums. You will definitely need DEET and need to spray. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is a great park. Very clean and lots of things within driving distance. The park is very secluded and within a few minutes you can be in Savannah is all the traffic. Only problem is the sand gnats. They will literally eat you alive. I don't know believe they spray for them and you cannot spend any time outdoors, which if you are camping is exactly what you want to do. This is our second time visiting in April and we will not be back because the bugs are so bad. The chew my kids up and then wanted more. They get in your hair and no amount of repel bug spray or skin so soft will help. If you do decide to go, we were told by a local that the sand gnats are only there when temperatures are pleasant from about 60 to 80 degrees. And they are not bad when temps are over 80 which would be in the summer. Just have to check it out and see. If you do come here I will suggest that you take the nature trail out to the salt marsh. They have a observation deck and it is beautiful. It is a great place to ride your bike out to and have a picnic. But there are some swampy areas and we did see a couple of snakes (one water snake and one copperhead) so watch out with pets or children. The park claims that they do have a alligator in the park but we have not seen it yet but others we talked to had so be careful. This is again a nice park with nice sized camping lots and plenty of privacy. Not alot of channels come in on the cable so satellite would be much better. Tent campers are not in a section but mixed all thoughout the campground. It is also about a 30 minute drive out to Tybee to see the ocean but the park did provide a map which made it very easy to navigate Savannah. River Street was awesome and take a ride out the the Savannah Wildlife Refuge, it was nice to see alligators in their own surroundings. Check it out, but watch out for the gnats. YUCK! We camped here in a Motorhome.

Very nice park close to the historic areas of Savannah. Bathhouses are small and a bit older but clean and very serviceable. There is one washer and one dryer at the bathhouses that have laundry. The park has cable TV with about 10 channels. This park was pretty and quiet with large, level pull around sites. We have a 30 ft class A. Some trimming of overhead branches is needed on the roads in the campground. In addition to visiting Savannah we enjoyed the Wormsloe Historic Site, Fort Pulaski and Tybee Island.

A typically wonderful, clean , quiet, wooded State Park. Oh, and dark. If you are going out of the park and not coming back until after dark be sure take your site-map with you and memorize the way to your site. My deepest apologies to the other campers who put up with me driving around and around in the dark trying to find our home. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is the quietest park that we have ever stayed in. It offers lots of privacy and is in a very scenic setting. Internal roads are good and can be navigated by large rigs with no problems. Bathrooms are small, but clean. Some sites in camping areas 2 and 4 have less shade, and can be muddy during periods of rain. Cable TV is limited to basics with broadcast networks, weather channel, and CNN. Don't forget insect repellant as mosquitos and gnats are plentiful. It is about 15 - 20 minutes out of Savannah. We reserved a campsite via the internet, and everything went well. Highly recommend this campground. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We really enjoyed this park. I thought the pull thrus were strange though. The awning side of the rv was not visible from the road. If you like privacy this is nice, if you want to sit outside and socialize with whoever walks by, this is bad. Swimming pool is large size with lifeguards. $2 charge, not open on Mon-Tues. 1 bath house per loop (4 loops), they were clean and had washers and dryers available. 2 hiking/biking trails both less than 1 mile long. 2 observation towers. It was neat to see the tide coming into the marsh areas. 2 playgrounds near picnic areas. Amphitheater and meadow area near camping area. There were many biting bugs while we were there, we stayed mostly inside rv because of the rain. All sites had a picnic table, fire ring, tent pad area and lots of vegetation. Not much wildlife while we were there, probably because of the weather. Savannah is close to park, about 10 mi to center. We did not have trouble entering or exiting park with traffic during our stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is so beautiful and very quiet. The park rangers and staff were very pleasant and helpful. The sites are widely spaced so you have your privacy with lots of trees in between. The comfort station always had hot water and clean. The washer and dryers were easily accessible and worked fine. The only thing I could say bad is bring your mosquito repellent, those guys ate us up but that is not the parks fault. I would higly recommend staying here if you want a lovely relaxing stay.

Skidaway is a nice park. I have a few issues with it though. First off, this park was filled with huge buslike motorhomes and if you do not wish to see your neighbors at all then go here. They pull in, hook up then you never see them again. I am certain this is just a jump off point to Savannah. The bathrooms are very clean and get an A-, the only issue is that there is nowhere to hang your towel or put soap while in shower. But bathrooms were cleaned every morning like clockwork. Trails are okay but limited and this is where the problem comes in. The main reason this park gets such a low grade is really not the park. Not everyone is going to Skidaway to see Savannah, I live in Charleston only 80 minutes away and can see Savannah anytime. When you leave the road to the park: Boom! Traffic, lights galore, bad drivers, bad road system and tons of confusing turns to get you back to any major road. This is no exaggeration. The parks location is terrible, and there are limited things to do in the park. So you are stuck unless you want to go to Savannah. Frankly I would rather take the route from Charleston to Savannah, less traffic and hassles than from the 5 mile away Skidaway. Also, there is quite substantial road noise but who cares when you are in a 45 foot big rig with the TV blasting? We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
