I'm not sure I would travel any great distance to get to Cumberland Island, but being that I live less than an hour away, it was a great day trip to make. We rented bikes and were mesmerized by the Spanish moss hanging over the "street" and a few wild horse sightings at first, but you can only take bikes on a certain part of the island where the trail scenery gets monotonous after awhile. We parked the bikes after lunch and walked to the ruins and beach which was great but we hardly saw any horses and NONE on the beach which was quite a disappointment as that was why we wanted to come in the first place. That being said, the beach scenery is fantastic. I would not camp here if you paid me as I heard people screaming from the freezing showers and think I would simply get bored. Overall though, this is a great place to visit - take time to learn about the history too - I applaud the families who fought to preserve this National Seashore!
