My third trip to Skidaway. I especially appreciate the spaciousness of this park. We were fortunate in that the grounds were not at all full so we could get within esy walking distance of one of the two comfort stations-- no shower in out Aliner. Shaded level sites everywhere. Security comforting. Rates OK. All in all I can think of few campgrounds near a large city, that surpass this place for meeting our needs (adults--no kids).

stayed at skidaway for one night in a tent. the park is a great location to do things in savannah. Not much to do at the park though. the park was very clean and the staff friendly. i would stay at this park again if i plan to visit and do things in savannah.

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.

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. I don't know just have to check it out and see. If you do go 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 satelite 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!

Great park, we go here several times a year. Shaded with large oak trees, lots of wildlife, large sandy sites, cable, water, elec. Great bike trails. Nearby Aquarium, minutes from great food and historic Savannah, cheap rates.

Level back-ins and pull-thrus on sand and grass, water, electric and basic cable, dump station, heavily shaded, no modem hook-up. Fifteen miles from downtown Savannah. Expensive.
