What is there to do?

If you want outdoor adventure, wildlife, camping fun, and a GREAT time with the family, then Skidaway Island State Park might just be for you!

Located near the historic Savannah, Skidaway Island State Park is filled with amazing nature, activities for all ages, and adventure for all!

Those active families will love the six miles of nature trails which wind through the various landscapes, from marshes, pines, oaks and cabbage-palmettos. This is a great way to not only get fit with walking or jogging, but gives kids an amazing opportunity to spot some of the local wildlife that calls the park home!

What do you think you will spot? Perhaps some raccoons, or rare migrating birds? Think you might spot some deer? All is possible at Skidaway Island State Park!

There is an observation tower which is a great opportunity for the family to search for the wildlife, as you have a great vantage point. Try and take binoculars if you can!

It's worth starting your experience at the interpretive center where there are nature exhibits, a reptile room, and birding station, as well as information about the park.

Have a break from nature by taking the kids to the two playgrounds, or enjoy some ranger-led activities and programs that are held through out the year!

The topics of the events vary, and cover fascinating topics such as wilderness survival, scavenger hunts, and turtle! Some programs are age specific for kids too, which makes it easier to pick which ones you want to enjoy. 

Beautiful nature in Georgia, just waiting for families just like you!
