Located near historic Savannah, this park borders Skidaway narrows, a part of Georgias intracoastal waterway. The park provides camping and picnicking surrounded by Spanish moss-draped live oaks. Trails wind through maritime forest and over salt marsh allowing visitors to watch for deer, fiddler crabs, raccoon, egrets and migrating birds such as colorful painted buntings. An observation tower provides another chance to watch for wildlife on this barrier island. A giant ground sloth replica, birding station, reptile room, and natural and cultural exhibits are featured in the interpretive center.

Very nice park. Bring bug spray

This should be rated as easy. A lot of bugs of course.

Great trail with great views

Beautiful photo opportunities! The Skidaway trails truly show the beauty that coastal Georgia has to offer. The trails are pretty easy. Wooden boardwalks cover parts of the marshes. A small part of the trail is closed off from the hurricane. The up rooted trees just adds to the beauty of it all. Picnic areas, clean restrooms, dog friendly! $5 parking fee.

very easy flat trail with lots of wild life. the crabs were very cool

Easy hike and temps good at this time of year. Lots of people with dogs. You can see evidence of Hurricane Matthew with many trees down. Can't walk out to Observation Tower currently.

Very good trail to run on, when you can actually find it! At the beginning, the trail is very good but not marked at all. You definitely need to follow the map. Once you cross the road, the trail doesn't really exist anymore because of downed trees and probably floods and hurricanes. I followed the powerlines back to the road and was able to get back onto the trail.
