Cumberland Island National Seashore
The Cumberland Island National Seashore is the largest and southernmost barrier island in Georgia, offering guests over 17 miles of secluded white, sandy beaches. Wild horses and other island wildlife roam freely throughout the ruins and along the beach. Glimpses of the Carnegie lifestyle can be easily imagined throughout the ruins of Dungeness, abandoned luxury vehicles, Plum Orchard, and Greyfield Inn.
The island is a complex ecological system of interdependent animal and plant communities. A system of foredunes protects the interdune meadow and shrub thickets. A canopy of live oak trees stretches out beyond the back dunes that provide protection from the salt spray. For more information, you can go to The Cumberland Island National Seashore website .

Okefenokee Swamp Annual Light Show
You do not want to miss this!
The Okefenokee Swamp "The Lights" Annual Light Show. Waycross (Northern Entrance), is about an hour drive from the campground. But well worth the drive. Seven of us "big kids" went last year and we will go back every year. The volunteers of the swamp start putting these lights up in the swamp (really! Not this girl) in October. Get on the Okefenokee Swamp Park Railroad and sit back to enjoy the ride through the swamp. You'll enjoy butterflies fluttering, birds flying, an alligator chasing a duck, marching soldiers and on and on. Fun for all ages.
Please go to their website for details and schedule. We have a copy in the office for your convenience.
