Golden Isles RV Park

This 14-acre campground is situated between Savannah and the Atlantic, about 7 miles from the coast. It is mostly an RV park, but there is a primitive camping area for tent campers tucked away in the back of the property.

Cumberland Island National Seashore

Located at the southern end of the Georgia coast is Cumberland Island National Seashore, which offers both developed and backcountry campsites. The developed campgrounds are Sea Camp and Stafford Beach Campground, both of which have shower houses and fire rings. Backcountry campsites are at Yankee Paradise, Brickhill Bluff and Hickory Hill. Campfires are banned at these sites, so camp stoves must be used instead. All water at backcountry sites comes from local sources, which must be treated, and "leave-no-trace" practices are required. Campers are permitted a maximum stay of seven days at Cumberland Island. The Cumberland Island National Seashore supports a range of outdoor activities, including hiking, nature watching, fishing and open-water swimming.
