Cumberland Island Dog Policy
Cumberland Island National Seashore is Somewhat Dog Friendly
Cumberland Island is the largest barrier island in Georgia. The island encompasses wilderness areas of forests, beaches, and marshes. The island offers camping, hiking, fishing, beachgoing, and water sports recreation opportunities. There are also feral horses on the island. The south end of the island also has the ruins of Dungeness Mansion, which was meant as a winter home for Thomas Carnegie (the mansion caught fire in 1959 and was never rebuilt -- only the stone/brick walls remain). There are several museums and the Plum Orchard Mansion which you can tour, but dogs are not allowed inside.
Cumberland Island National Seashore is somewhat dog friendly. Dogs are allowed on the island, but they must arrive on private boats for day trips. Dogs are not allowed on the ferry from St. Marys. Dogs are allowed on trails and along roads on the south side of the island, but are not allowed in wilderness areas on the north side of the island.
Dogs are allowed on trails and park roads on the south side of the island while on a leash no longer than 6', but not in the wilderness area on the north side.
Dogs are not allowed in campgrounds.
