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.

We enjoyed this hike! It's not well marked (not marked at all, really), and we missed a couple miles of it, but we saw lots of wildlife in the 3.5 miles we walked. Within the first 5 minutes, there's a swampy area on the left side of the trail, and we spotted a baby alligator, maybe 18 inches long. First alligator I've seen in GA since moving here two years ago! We saw tons of bird species, a decent-sized deer, and lots of lizards. Will definitely walk this trail again soon!

For when you're tying to get a "woods" fix in coastal GA.

Full of mosquitos. Bridge to the lookout was closed. Nothing to write home about.

Fun ! Lots of cool trees to climb, places to kayak in from. Bring big spray . No step on snek.
