Skidaway Island - Georgia

Just got back from five nights at Skidaway Island State Park, a few miles south of Savannah.

Lovely campground with widely scattered, large sites, beautully wooded with Live Oaks and Spanish Moss; one of the most attractive campgrounds we've yet to discover along the southeastern coast.

The island itself did not offer much - it is heavily developed with gated communities. The island is not ocean front, so no beach, though it is on the intracoastal waterway making it a great place to put in a boat.

The historic central Savannah district is only a 15 minute drive, and Tybee Island - with a great beach and lighthouse - is about 30 minutes away.

I've posted some pics to show off our Scamp and outdoor kitchen set-up, and a couple shots taken in Savannah.

Beautiful! Little different than the Pacific North West - I'm liking the decals/stencils on your Scamp, too.

Just curious, do you use the air conditioner much this time of year?

Skidaway is one of our favorite stops on our escape route to the warm, sunny winter lands. They've also restored the cable TV. Savannah is a fun place to visit. The planned (village) community just east of the entrance has a good grocery store and the village library always has books for sale.

But, if you want to reserve a campsite, you need to use the Georgia State Parks web site: http://gastateparks.org/ . You won't find Georgia State Parks on Reserve America. Georgia has some really nice state parks.

Oh yeah, and you don't have to be a Georgia resident to get the senior discount.

No - not at all. On this trip daytime highs were in the 60s with night time lows in the 40s. In fact, we ran our little 110v ceramic heater on a couple of evenings to take the chill off.

We have been stopping at Tybee Island for a couple nights on our trips south for easy access into Savannah. Will have to try Skidaway. Ron, do you have a winter location you stay at in the south, we are staying on Jekyll Island for three months, but it's not as warm as we would like it to be.

hi steve and janna...looks like a nice spot but kind of lonely! were there any other campers?

also--did you cut out the tabletop to allow the dishpan to inset? that is a nice kitchen setup that you use. i am looking to do something similar this summer at our (permanent) trailer on our recreational property.

I have a similar question about your stove.. It doesn't look like a cutout, but couldn't tell for sure. What brand of stove is it? The campground looks lovely. Thanks for posting. -- Anne

Anne & Theresa, the stove and the sink are both stock units that came installed in the Scamp. They are nested in cutouts in the plastic table. Both lift out for travel, allowing the table to fold flat.

I plan to build something a bit more elegant that will hold both the sink and stove, as well as our dishes and cook ware...someday

There were actually bunches of campers at the park, including another Scamp, a Boler, several canned hams, a handful of hardy tenters, and a slew of big units. We made several acquaintances.

Part of the reason we went to Skidaway was to join up with members of the online Serro Scotty organization ( www.nationalserroscotty.org/ ) The website and club are administered by Nancy Kroes, who was there with her Boler. Nancy organizes camp ins for the group at various locations across the country - they are a great bunch to meet up with.

Mary & Bob, We wander from one Florida State Park to another, mostly staying the allowed 2 weeks at a time at each one. Right now, we're at Oscar Scherer in Osprey, FL, near Venice. From here we move on to Little Manatee River SP, then over to Highlands Hammock for the Scamp Camp.

However, I'm embarrassed to say that we don't have our EggCamper with us this year. We spent 6 months in the Egg last year and realized that, for us, it was just too small for living that long on the road. So, when we got back to NH in the spring, we found a 26 ft. Trail Cruiser for our longer trips. But, I'll also say that the construction is not as sound as the EggCamper. Although there is more living space, large fridge, and walk-around queen bed, it feels very fragile, with flimsy paneling. We would have preferred a Bigfoot 25, but couldn't find one nearby within our budget.

So, here we are. We watch the weather up in NH. This morning it's 3 degrees and snowing and here, we're having a bit of a cold snap here with a high of 55 today. Life is good!
