New Skidaway Island State Park Visitor Center, Savannah

Skidaway Island State Park will host a public ribbon-cutting celebration for its new visitor center at 10AM on May 13. The 6,300-square-foot building is now the first stop for those enjoying one of Georgia’s most popular state parks.

Designed to reflect the architectural style of neighboring communities, the facility spotlights the low-country barrier island. Floor-to-ceiling windows showcase the maritime forest and marsh, and guests can enjoy birding from a screened porch. Towering 20 feet high is a giant ground sloth skeleton, a replica of an ancient fossil found within the park in 1822. Nature exhibits include turtles and snakes, and a gift shop is filled with clothing, toys, books, camping supplies, jewelry and local foods. The visitor center also includes meeting space, classroom space and staff offices.

Skidaway Island State Park is just 15 minutes from downtown Savannah, yet surrounded by peaceful tidal waterways and forest. Overnight guests can choose from small cabins or campsites shaded by live oaks and Spanish moss. During the day, visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, geocaching and ranger programs. The park’s Big Ferry Nature Trail is part of Georgia’s Colonial Coast Birding Trail, and colorful painted buntings are often spotted during spring.

To learn more, visit or call 912-598-2300.

The public is invited to attend the ceremony, and parking is $5. Skidaway Island State Park is operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
