Cumberland Island National Seashore

Cumberland Island National Seashore The visitor center is located in St. Marys which is in the very southeastern tip of Georgia. Cumberland Island is 7 miles east of St. Marys and is only accessible by boat. Cumberland Island is the largest of Georgia’s barrier islands. The national park service has a concession that operates a passenger-only ferry from here all year long. There is an admission fee for the park and a separate fee for the ferry. Reservations are recommended.

Beach accessible wheelchairs are available and the Park’s concession rents bikes at Sea Camp. There are more than 50 miles of hiking trails that go through forests, wetlands, historic districts, marshes and beautiful beaches. There are developed campgrounds and wilderness camping.

Other activities include fishing, stargazing, photography, boating, beach combing, kayaking, and swimming. There are over 300 species of birds as well as other wildlife like armadillos, feral horses, manatees and sea turtles to watch.

There are several guided tours or you can explore the island on your own. There is a museum on the island where you can learn about the Timucua, the Native Americans in Southeastern Georgia and Northeastern Florida, the plantation era, the gilded age, the War of 1812 and see restored carriages. You can visit the first African Baptist church and the Plum Orchard Mansion.
