It is also where Savannah Sweets is, for the best ever freshly made Pralines and Salt Water Taffy. Reserve your site at Skidaway Island State Park NOW!

Memorial weekend in 2018 will find us camping again with our southern members at Fall Creek Falls in Tennessee. Make your reservations NOW if you are hoping to come!
