Whether you're an avid camper or just want to get away from the Internet and television for a few days into the Great Outdoors on a barrier island, Cumberland Island is the place set up a tent. A Sea Camp ranger will assign campsites upon arrival and after orientation. Nestled among live oaks and thick vegetation, they are spaced well apart to ensure privacy and quiet. Besides the free roaming wild horses, there are raccoons, armadillos, wild turkeys, lizards and snakes but they are all part of the "return to nature" experience of camping. Each site has a grill, fire ring, food cage and picnic table. There are restrooms and cold showers, bike rentals and a park ranger cabin. Reservations for summer should be made six months in advance. Transportation to the camp at the second dock is by ferry from St. Marys. Camping is limited to seven days. There are camping fees of USD4 per person per night. Don't underestimate the raccoons; they know how to open anything. - Natasha Lawrence
