Cumberland Island was absolutely beautiful. The horses were roaming in the ruins and we were able to get super close. The bike ride, however, is not a good idea. The road was sandy therefore making it hard to ride the bikes. Also take plenty of water. There are no stations on the island to get any supplies or food. We... More

Cumberland Island is just one of those 'must see' places. Really and truly a destination to make sure you visit at least once in your lifetime. Very hot during the summer so if you can plan your trip for a slightly cooler time of the year, it may make it more enjoyable. On this trip I did the 'Lands &... More

This was my first trip to CI, so I didn't know what to expect except from other reviews. Initially I was going to rent bikes but at the last minute we took the walking tour. The ferry has two stops that are close together. We disembarked the boat at the first stop, the Dungeness Dock, with the Park Ranger. The... More

Great place to take a book, ride a bike, or take a long, long, walk and you may never see anyone else for hours. It is absolutely beautiful. The sand dunes go very deep inland most places and are covered with bright wild flowers during the summer and fall months.

We came here without knowing much about the island and history. The ferry ride was a scenic trip through the salt marshes. After disembarking we met the ranger. We did the walking tour of the ruins of Dungeness. We saw wild horses, turkeys, armadillos, deer and in the end- Manatees. The kids found several sharks teeth on the beach.

We were excited to be able to take our bicycles with us on the ferry for a small fee. The ranger led walking tour from the Dungeness dock to the ruins was great. We planned to bicycle to Plum Orchard but with the temperature reaching 100 degrees, the ranger wisely advised us to shorten our trip and suggested Stafford Beach... More

Miles and miles of sandy beach. You are among the turtles and sea shells. A short distance from Greyfield Inn.

We spent all day on this magical island and could have spent longer. We took the 9am ferry over and did the Lands and Legacies van tour. It was amazing! We saw an alligator, an armadillo, lots of turkeys, a raccoon, tons of seabirds, a mother deer and two fawn, and plenty of the beautiful wild horses. We also got... More

We loved our trip to Cumberland Island. To see an island that is so much in its natural condition is a real joy. The seashore is pristine. The wildlife is awesome including the wild horses. The hiking is really remarkable and the trails are well marked and laid out. WE took the Ranger tour of the ruins of the Carnegie... More
