A visit to Cumberland Island National Seashore is a total treat. It is a trip, however, that needs careful planning if one is to be able to fully access all this island has to offer. Visit the National Park's Visitor Center in order to get...More

A natural beauty a.long the Georgia seashore, rich in history, and the wild horses and wild turkey add to the flavor of the island. Plum Orchard mansion and the Dungeness Ruins are a must see.

Need I say more? I never wanted to leave. A complete gem of a place! Seriously, bring sunscreen & reapply (unlike me) & lots of water - there's no shade. Be prepared to take all of your trash back on the ferry with you -...More

We decided to stop at Cumberland Island National Seashore on our way back to Florida. This is a great place with lots of history - from plantation life to the church where JFK, Jr. was married. We went mainly to see the Cumberland horses -...More

There is so much to see in southeast Georgia, along the Atlantic seaboard, from Savannah to Brunswick, including St. Simon Island and Jekyll Island, so many historical sites, so many beautiful nature preserves.

We all enjoyed exploring the unique landscape. We had saw lots of wild animals including horses, deer, turkeys and horseshoe crabs and had the beach to ourselves. Preparation is key since there isn't anything to buy on the island and you need to take everything...More

When you reach the dock the ranger station is right there on your left and there should be someone there to rent the bikes. Bikes are usually only rented at the time the boat docks. We have never had a problem with... More
