Skidaway Island State Park

nature-768585_1920Skidaway Island State Park is located near historic Savannah, a gorgeous state park bordering the Skidaway Narrows, part of Georgia’s intracoastal waterway. Here your group will find trails winding through the maritime forest, past the salt marsh, and leading to a popular park boardwalk and observation tower. On a trip to this state park your group will have the chance to spend some time inside the Skidaway Interpretive Center, a place in which you will find binoculars for bird watching, reference books on local flora and fauna information, and a large, useful window to see the migrating birds along the Atlantic Coastline, such as the rarely seen Painted Bunting.

On the grounds your group will have the chance to explore (or perhaps use) the scenic campground, nestled gorgeously under a cover of live oaks and Spanish moss. Outside you can head to the observation tower to watch for deer, fiddler crabs, raccoon, egrets, and other wildlife, or perhaps take part in any of the many recreational activities offered at Skidaway Island. Take some time to hike, bike, bird, boat, or fish, or perhaps join in any of the happening watersports. There is an amphitheater at the park, as well as many playgrounds and picnic areas. You can even take advantage of volleyball courts or daily offered ranger programs! This state park is the perfect place to immerse yourself into nature and learn a bit about Savannah’s natural side, plus your group will be thankful for the opportunity to stretch and play around a bit!
