Cumberland Island National Seashore does NOT accept campsite reservations in advance.
Sites are awarded on a first come, first served basis when we reach the Island. Therefore, we are advised to
be prepared to hike as much as 10.5 miles the first day to reach our campsite. This is highly unlikely since
our first night of camping is a Sunday night which is traditionally slow, as are all the other weeknights.
Our itinerary is predicated on the ability to stay various campsites on
particular nights, but you should be aware of the possibility that we may have to make last minute
Obtain any last-minute equipment participants forgot at

All the items that you won't bring on the trail will be set aside and put in storage.
