Located near historic Savannah, this park borders Skidaway narrows, a part of Georgia's intracoastal waterway. Trails wind through maritime forest and past salt marsh, leading to a boardwalk and observation tower.  Visitors can watch for deer, fiddler crabs, raccoon, egrets and other wildlife. Inside the park's interpretive center, birders will find binoculars, reference books and a window where they can look for migrating species such as Painted Buntings. Children will especially enjoy seeing the towering, 20-foot Giant Ground Sloth replica and reptile room. A scenic campground is nestled under live oaks and Spanish moss, while groups can enjoy privacy in their own pioneer campgrounds. Open-air picnic shelters and an enclosed group shelter are popular spots for parties, reunions and other celebrations. There are also three pioneer hike-in campsites in the park, which are primitive, rugged sites for organized groups of at least 10 people with adult leaders.

The park's camper cabins offer screened porches, air conditioning, bathroom with shower, kitchen, master bedroom and kids' sleeping loft.
