Looking for fall fun? Try a state park

Stephen C. Foster State Park

Fall’s cool, crisp air welcomes visitors to take advantage of the outdoors, and Georgia State Parks are the place to play.

In south Georgia, fall is the time to take advantage of a lower-humidity, bug-free climate, where the sunshine beckons you to spend your daylight hours outdoors. Wildlife viewing is prime down here, where visitors can walk the birding trails or paddle the isolated waterways at Reed Bingham, Skidaway Island, and Stephen C. Foster.

The short hikes at Skidaway Island take hikers by salt marshes and maritime forests, and tidal creeks are populated with shrimp, fiddler crabs, minnows and oysters.

Camping in south Georgia is most enjoyed in fall’s cool temperatures. For a more comfortable experience, Skidaway Island’s camper cabins allow guests to stay overnight in the park with the shelter of four walls and a roof.

These three camper cabins have the look of a luxe ranch house, with brand new hardwood floors and an airy, open living area.
