Beautiful park, we went on a kayaking trip from here and it was refreshing to get out of the city proper on such a hot day. And we saw dolphins in the river!

We would have liked to explore more of the trails in this park but the Big Ferry trail was very nice and just long enough for a leisurely afternoon hike. Lots of shade and breezes to ward off the heat.

We stayed here for 4 nights while on vacation in Savannah. The park is impecable. Clean, large sites. Almost all are pull thru sites. The hiking was wonderful. We had more fun in the park than we did in Savannah.

Quiet, secluded feeling location, but not too far from all the tourist sites you'd want to visit. Close enough to Savannah and Tybee Island. Easy to find campground and spacious campsites. Could use a little more signage at each loop entrance.

We're full time travelers with a 43' coach. We like to visit areas of interest and stay nearby, so Skidaway looked suitable for doing that for Savannah. The sites are large once you get to them through the narrow roads. Rustic with lots of trees...More

The hurricanes really tore up this place, but so what? It's a wonderful walk and wild. I wish more emphasis was placed on the Civil War bits that are there. It feels hallowed when you stop and think of the history here. Super nice to...More

After reading reviews I thought the campground would be special, Not. Paid for premium site, grass around it needs to be cut, fire ring not cleaned out , site needs some gravel, mud puddles after rain storm. In my opinion Park is average to good....More

Yes and the sites are really large . When we were there we bought the Georgia State park pass which gave us 2 nights free so we paid less for the 4 nights we stayed. Beautiful
