Our first visit, but definitely not our last! My boys 14 & 12 were in heaven the few days we spent on this island and they cannot wait to return! They slept in hammocks high in the live oaks in sea camp #13. They loved waking up to horses walking thru our site. They loved the secluded beach and searching... More

The island is a must see...totally natural with wild horses roaming the land. Tour guide was passionate about the island and increased our enjoyment. He pointed out and told us things we would have missed.

Island is bigger than Hilton Head, but maintains its historical ambiance thru efforts of Nat'l Park system. 170 wild horses on the island, they greet you at the dock. Park RAnger tours are hit or miss. Got a personalized tour by chatting up one of the groundskeepers...he was awesome. A lot of history to take in here, as well as... More

Travel back in time and lose time. I have been here a few times through Greyfield Inn as well as camping. The sunrises are awesome and the sunsets spectacular. Easily one of the best, remote areas right next door to visit. August can be a bear with the heat as the ocean feels like bath water, but this is also... More

Took the 11:45 ferry to the island. Was just the right amount of time on the island to make the 4 mile walk starting at the first dock, to the ruins, the beach, through the 40 ft dunes, and back to the second dock through the live oak forest and campground. Enjoyed an informative and entertaining talk from the ranger... More

My family took a trip to Cumberland Island last November. My son and I were looking for a place to do a twenty mile hike and the island sounded interesting. Being it is a National Seashore it was closed for two weeks when the Federal government closed, but as soon as it opened I made reservations without much trouble. We... More

I went with my cousins we had an amazing time. We walked the island so that we could enjoy our time there. The sight of the ruins are amazing. We loved seeing all the wild animals even seen a beautiful jelly fish at the edge of the ocean. They even have campsites available. We are hoping to go back and... More

Before I describe our awesome visit to Cumberland I want to thank their staff, especially Mr. Crawford, who is a ranger on the island. My husband and I came over on the 9:00 ferry and rented 2 bikes. My husband realized at that time he had left his truck keys on a bench back at the dock at St. Marys... More

Worth the effort to get there if you love wilderness and unspoiled beaches. Places like this are almost impossible to find on the east coast. A real throw back to the 19th century. Be prepared to hike although the NPS does run transportation to the north end.
