Perfect day trip for visiting the Dungeness Ruins. Peaceful walk, under a canopy of live oak trees, keeps you shaded. It is HOT in the summer, with lots of humidity. It's not a long walk to the Ruins from the dock, and there were many wild horses along the way. Remember to bring your own water, as there is nothing... More

Just coming back from an amazing camping trip of 3 days and 2 nights. We took the Lands & Legacy tour and highly recommend as you get a chance to see points on the north of the island that you may otherwise never get to see, let alone have interpreted for you. (The tour makes a lunchtime stop at Plum... More

This Island is a little known treasure. There is so much to see! The Island is limited on how many visitors can come each day and there are no motorized vehicles allowed for tourists. This keeps the island looking natural. Wild horses are everywhere and other wildlife is abundant too. The camp sites are basic but clean and the bathrooms... More

It's like stepping back in times to look at the ruins. Hard to it in its glory days. So breathtaking for a day trip of peace and tranquility in nature. Amazing beach and hiking. Interesting history. Remember to pack a lunch and water. Nothing to buy on island.

Our family really enjoyed our day at the Cumberland Island National Seashore! We took a day trip from Jekyll Island where we were staying. We enjoyed seeing dolphins while on the 45 minute ferry ride. You could also see the wild horses in the marsh from the ferry. We got off at the Ice House Museum dock and walked to... More

Landing at the park you realize that not many folks have ever been there. The vegetation is lush and the miles of beach just magnificent.

Take the early ferry and enjoy a step back in time. Take the National Park Service tour, it is well worth the five hours and very informative. You will be amazed with the history of the island. Bring your camera, you will see a lot of wildlife to include wild horses.

I will start by saying this: A trip to the Cumberland Island National Seashore is something everyone should do at least once. It was incredible - but also a big challenge! I called a week in advance and reserved my ferry ticket ($25) ... I did not experience any issue getting through or making a reservation as has been expressed... More

I LOVED this place. No traffic, wild life everywhere, and the tour is well worth the money, so rich with history of the area and the island. The horses are fantastic, but there are also wild deer, raccoon (sneaky little critters, keep your food up), lots of lizards of course,and a large variety of birds. Mosquitoes are also abundant in...
