Skidaway Island State Park has so much to offer to families. Located near historic Savannah, this park borders Skidaway Narrows, a part of Georgia’s Intracoastal Waterway. Trails wind through maritime forest and past salt marsh, leading to a boardwalk and observation tower. Visitors can watch for deer, fiddler crabs, raccoons, egrets, and other wildlife. In the park’s interpretive center, birders will find binoculars, reference books, and a window to look for migrating species such as Painted Buntings. Children will especially enjoy seeing the towering, 20-foot giant ground sloth replica and reptile room.
