Skidaway Island State Park has a new Manager, Sam Cox, who will oversee the 588-acre park, which includes 87 campsites, picnic shelters and three playgrounds.
Cox started his career with Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites in 2015 and was assistant manager of Stephen C. Foster State Park and then manager of Magnolia Springs State Park prior to working at Skidaway.
Cox earned a bachelor’s degree from Columbia Southern University in Orange Beach in Criminal Justice Administration. After completing his degree, Cox went on to work in law enforcement for both Newton and Henry County.
“Some of my fondest memories growing up are of my parents taking my sister and me camping in Georgia,” said Cox. “As a parent, I have tried to do the same with my child. I am very excited to call Savannah home and look forward to continuing to bring some new ideas to Skidaway Island State Park.”
