I visited for the day with my husband and two children (ages 9 and 10) at the beginning of April. We took the 9:00 ferry and returned on the 2:45 ferry. This allowed us ample to walk the South Loop (where we saw the ruins...More

If you are looking for vending machines, ice buckets and concierge, this is not the place for you. If you are looking to leave stimulation and immerse yourself in nature to relax and just be, then yes. Cumberland Island is an amazing place deeply rooted...More

Tou can buy it from the ferry (Cumberland Queen)—they dock multiple times a day. Also: the dock is about half a mile from Sea Camp. Have fun!
