RV Vacation Idea: Cumberland Island National



Cumberland Island National Seashore is a seaside treasure located in southeastern Georgia and contains nearly 10,000 acres of beautiful wilderness area.  It offers more than fifty miles of hiking trails, along with biking, kayaking, bird watching, photography, beach combing, fishing and more. 

If you're a history lover, you'll want to check out the Dungeness Ruins and the Plum Orchard Mansion.


Ferries take visitors from the mainland to the island.  Check for restrictions and ferry information, as vehicles, pets and bikes are not allowed on the ferry.

While there are no RV campgrounds on Cumberland Island, there are a number of nearby RV campgrounds including a couple of State Parks.    

The closest El Monte RV rental location is in Jacksonville, FL. However, if starting your trip from another location is more convenient, we also have many other rental offices, so please visit our locations map to find a location that may be more suitable.

El Monte RV Cares! Terra Pass Carbon Offset Option

El Monte RV offers customers a way to offset the carbon emissions from their motorhome vacation by selecting this option when booking by the website, requesing it via the call center, or when picking up at the rental counter.

This option is completely voluntary and is a very nominal fee.  We encourage you to consider this when booking your trip!


Every cent of this nominal fee goes straight to Terra Pass to fund various carbon-offsetting programs.
