Skidaway Island State Park

Located near historic Savannah, this park borders Skidaway narrows, a part of Georgia’s 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. Dogs must be leashed at all times and are not permitted in any buildings. Visit Website

    Needed something to do to allow the dog to walk without the crowds and traffic of Savannah. It was a nice easy hiking path and our dog Layla loved it. $5.00 a car to get it. We did not know that it had such nice picnic areas other wise we would have packed lunch. Just wish they would allow dogs in the cabins.

    Beautiful Park and Trails

    Just minutes from Savannah and what a different view. Beautiful park with well marked trails. we ran and strolled through all of them. $5 day pass and it is well worth it. Staff and rangers were super nice. Just a great day!

    Dog Friendly Trails

    Trails are super fun, plenty of rest areas to stop and get a drink and even some photos. Absolutely beautiful.

    Great hiking for this pup

    We visited on a very cool day, but that didn't stop us from enjoying this lovely park. We stopped and got a map from the friendly people at the visitor's center and were able to spend about 4.5 hours hiking on the trails. Because of the weather, we only encountered a handful of people out hiking, but they were all friendly. Also lucked out and didn't run into any alligators!(signs are posted) Would recommend this to any pups looking to get out and stretch their legs! Fyi you do have to pay to park here.

    nice trails

    Cool nature trails, dog friendly, clear paths. My dog loved it. It was a nice break from the savannah scene. There are multiples trails and distances to choose, ranging up to three miles.

    Awesome trail

    We went over Labor Day weekend 2012 in the evening and only saw one other person on the 3-mile trail. Its a fun loop that goes through the forest and then along one of the many inland waterways. We saw some deer, heard an owl, and most importantly our dog had a blast. As with all the state parks, you are required to have a 6' leash and clean up after your pet. There were quite a few mosquitoes, but that is to be expected.
