Visitors to Savannah’s Skidaway Island State Park can now sleep in air-conditioned comfort thanks to new camper cabins. The three mini-cabins each offer a screened porch, bathroom with shower, kitchen, master bedroom and kids’ sleeping loft. Guests bring their own linens, cooking supplies and sense of adventure. Outside, they’ll find a picnic table, grill and fire ring surrounded by beautiful Live Oaks and Spanish moss.
Skidaway Island State Park offers a wide range of ranger programs, from guided bird walks and nature crafts, to turtle talks and snake feedings. Six miles of walking trails meander through maritime forest and salt marsh, where hikers can look for fiddler crabs during low tide. Park guests can also rent bicycles or work off energy on playgrounds. Foodies and history buffs will appreciate the short drive to Savannah’s Historic District, while ocean lovers can easily day-trip to Tybee Island’s beaches.
The park’s new camper cabins rent for $125, and reservations can be made up to 13 months in advance. A modern campground offers tent and RV sites, hot showers and laundry facilities. Families can rent covered picnic shelters or enclosed group shelters for reunions, birthday parties and other celebrations. Skidaway Island State Park is located 15 miles southeast of Savannah on Diamond Causeway. To learn more, visit GeorgiaStateParks.org/skidawayisland or call 912-598-2300.
