With miles of trails that go through the marsh and skirt the waterway, this place is a gem for nature enthusiasts and fitness addicts alike. There is also camping, events throughout the year, and a well done nature center. Definitely recommend!

We camped here and loved it. So many sites and so much privacy. Hiking on the island is wonderful. It's easy to reach Savannah's sites from here.

My husband and I returned to this park for a few days before heading down to Florida. This GA state Park is one of our favorite parks. The sites are huge and bathrooms are very clean. We tow a 16-foot Airstream Bambi and have no...More

Visited the hiking trails here along with my spouse and our golden retriever. Great trail network with some scenic views of the water and oyster shell rings dating back hundreds of years. Trails are well-marked and maintained.

Stayed here for a week to attend a family wedding in Savannah. It has been great, large sites, quiet and shaded. The only draw back is it is faitly expensive for a state park but they do offer senior discounts.

Beautiful park, we went on a kayaking trip from here and it was refreshing to get out of the city proper on such a hot day. And we saw dolphins in the river!

We would have liked to explore more of the trails in this park but the Big Ferry trail was very nice and just long enough for a leisurely afternoon hike. Lots of shade and breezes to ward off the heat.

We stayed here for 4 nights while on vacation in Savannah. The park is impecable. Clean, large sites. Almost all are pull thru sites. The hiking was wonderful. We had more fun in the park than we did in Savannah.

Quiet, secluded feeling location, but not too far from all the tourist sites you'd want to visit. Close enough to Savannah and Tybee Island. Easy to find campground and spacious campsites. Could use a little more signage at each loop entrance.

Really flat walk on mostly all natural trail. Key highlights are old deciduous trees with tall full canopy, views of marshland, and waterways. Wildlife was thousands of mud crabs, some egrets, blue claw crabs in shallows, once saw a great heron. Overall, a nice 3.5...More

We rented a car for three days from Enterprise. They come over to the camp ground and pick you up, take you over to the office and fill out the paper work and you are good to go. Think it was like 32 dollars a day.

I'd call the park office. I've never camped there, but it seems to be a very popular campground. You should have no problem.
