Cumberland Island Overview
Cumberland Island is one of the Sea Islands.
Cumberland is the largest in terms of continuously exposed land area of Georgia's barrier islands. It is the southern most island in the state of Georgia. It is located on the Atlantic Ocean in an area considered as the Sea of Georgia because of its shallow depths. The island is part of Camden County ( 30°51′N, 81°27′W). Cumberland is 17.5 miles (28 km) long, with an area of 36,415 acres (147.37 km²), including 16,850 acres (68.19 km²) of marsh, mudflats, and tidal creeks. This is a protected island and has been a National Seashore since 1972. It has also been designated a Biosphere Reserve. No new development is allowed on the island. There are no restaurants or bars. Visitors may stay at Greyfield Inn or on the camping grounds administered by the National Park Service. There is no bridge to the island; most visitors reach the island by the Cumberland Ferry, while the most convenient boat access is from the town of St. Marys, Georgia
