#2 of 8 in Nature in Georgia Coast
National Park Beach
Catch the ferry to Cumberland Island National Seashore for hiking, surf-fishing, and camping. The island, approximately 1.6 km (1 mi) from the mainland, features a central maritime forest with deer, wild horses, and hogs. Choose from many walking and hiking trails and numerous backcountry/wilderness and seaside camping sites. Visit the Dungeness mansion ruins, destroyed in a fire, and see the Plum Orchard Mansion, built in the Georgian Revival style, which covers 1,858 sq m (20,000 sq ft). Reservations are a must for the ferry and campsites, as only 300 people are allowed on the island at any time. Camping permits are provided during camping orientation. Be aware that the reservation system is a bit convoluted. Put Cumberland Island National Seashore and other Cumberland Island attractions into our Cumberland Island vacation builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Wow! What a great trip. Well organized, felt safe, saw lots of wildlife and wonderful photo ops. We went shelling, hiking, took many pictures and met many new friends along the way. Would recommend being prepared for current weather, have water, back pack and cell phone handy. This trip will wear you out in a good way. Can't wait til next year. You can't do it all in one day.
  • A great combination of hiking and beach.
  • The best national Park I have ever been to.
