Skidaway Island State Park in Savannah, GA

Headed to Skidaway Island State Park in Savannah, GA for a quick 3 day spur of the moment getaway. Believe it or not I have never been to Savannah and was looking for suggestions on sites and restaurants and the like. Also wondered if anyone has been to that campground and if so what were their thoughts on the park.

Thanks!

Glenn and Tami

Very nice campground. All HUGE sites in heavy, huge trees with Spanish moss.

Water and electric at site. Dump station in park.

Avoid Paula Dean's. Too crowded and over rated.

Any place on the River is good. Huey's is good.

For breakfast go to Clary's. Amazing.

Agree that the park is very nice and reasonably close to Savannah. We ate at Paula Dean's as well, not the buffet but off the menu and enjoyed it. Lots to do and the city is really marvelous.

We were there last year in Jan and park almost empty. Nice park site markers a little hard to find. Just stayed one nite.

eat at the Cotton Exchange on the riverfront. Best salmon club sandwich ever and the shrimp salad sandwich is very very good!! There is an ice cream place Leopold's a couple of streets over from the riverfront with great ice cream and very large servings.

We were in Savannah last summer and ate at Uncle Bubba's - Paula Deens brother's place. It was good - Shrimp and Grits are served everywhere in GA -- can't leave without having some!

Ditto

Agree about park, nice spaces, agree about Pink House, have asked some locals for suggestions last visit and found some fantastic eateries, wish I could recall the names but don't. I usually opt for "local flavor", not necessarily the big joints that can afford full page color ads, but the place the locals go to, just ask around. My best visit there was when I rented a scooter for 1/2 day, can go anywhere in town without parking concerns, navigating with car, or in my case truck was nightmare. If you are up for it I highly recommend. Couple of scooter places in town, modern reliable equipment. My last visit was to photograph gates!! I have a collection of about 150 photos of wrought iron gates that are works of art, look around at them they are fantastic. Fabulous city to visit, don't miss the river front, cemeteries, parks and chuches. The tours at the visitors center are very helpful to get the lay of the land.

Enjoy

I recommend The Pirate's House on East Broad Street. They have an excellent buffet or you can order off the menu. The Pirate's House also has a parking lot.

Savannah is a great place to visit. They have parks spread all over town that honor all sorts of people.We took a city bus thing that you paid a flat rate for all day, you could get off at what ever stop you wanted to see. The buses run all day and when you want to go to the next stop you just get on the next bus. It was great. Jim
