    Terrific! Absolutely terrific! The scenery is amazing and camping near the seashore is amazing. Armadillos will walk right up to you, and wild turkeys are everywhere - not to mention the wild horses. Also, saw several Pileated Woodpeckers. Terrific camp site! Best time to go is early spring or late fall - bugs are less bothersome and the weather is good.

    Have been here three times and spent a total of 15 nights here. There is one real campsite (Sea Camp) which is close to the beach and very pretty. The other places to camp are backpacking spots. My two favorite are Brickhill, which is about a 10 mile hike one way from ranger station and the other is Stafford, which is about 3 miles. Lots of things to see while here. Plum orchard, Dungeness ruins, the beach. The island has what looks like three different ecosystems. When you first get of boat it is like regular woods and trails. When you get into middle of the island it is more like jurassic park with the big oak tress and spanish moss, and finally you get to the beach on the atlantic ocean side, which stretches for about 21 miles. You will probably see several animals on your stay including: Feral horses, turkeys, armadillo, snakes, turtles, dolphins, gators and tons of different birds. If you do stay at Brickhill - PURCHASE THE REPELLENT! from the building where you board the boat to go over. It is called something like X52. It is the only thing that works for the noseeums.

    Cumberland Island is a wonderful place to camp. It is tent camping only. There are quite a few campsites and they're fairly well wooded. You're only ever a short walk from the beach. The wild horses are the draw for the island, however. It's a beautiful thing to watch the horses meander along the beach or even galloping as a herd. I rated it 4 stars only because the wait time to get a site is absurd. The last time I camped at Cumberland, you had to book a year in advance. Otherwise, this campsite would definitely rate 5 stars.
