Cumberland Island NS Visitor Use Management Plan
Cumberland Island National Seashore is enjoyed by visitors from all over the world. Cumberland Island is a remarkable place that includes some of the finest natural habitats on the east coast, as well as a rich cultural legacy dating back 4,000 years.
Our effort to enhance the visitor experience is critically important as we balance visitor use with conservation and protection of the park's resources. It is important to note that the island offers unique and distinctive experiences. Our backcountry experience, which includes wilderness, offers a primitive and isolated feeling. The frontcountry has some of these same qualities, but also has potential for more visitor opportunities that are not primitive in nature.
Please add your voice to the conversation. Your views are important as we begin developing a visitor use management plan. No decisions have yet been made on what approach we will take. You will have additional opportunities in the future to provide feedback as we proceed in this planning effort. The National Park Service sincerely appreciates your interest in Cumberland Island National Seashore and we look forward to hearing from you!
