Skidaway Island State Park is Savannah's portal to the great outdoors—a section of the intracoastal waterway where visitors can hike, bike, and camp. Hikers have a choice of two paths: one-mile Sandpiper Nature Trail and three-mile Big Ferry Trail. Both routes twist through thick trees, salt and fresh waterways, and marshland bustling with forest animals and rare birds. Beyond the trails, the park's observation towers, birding station, and nature center provide plentiful opportunities to appreciate Skidaway Island's wildlife. While visitors can't access the beach, there's a swimming pool, picnic center, and three playgrounds to make the most of their afternoon.
