"I spent a few days with the park rangers on Cumberland Island capturing video for a virtual reality project I am working on. They showed me some really picturesque areas of the island, including this boardwalk that stretches through the marsh and sets up perfectly for what they said is the best sunset on the island. I think they knew what they were talking about!"

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
this is one of the worst nightly/late hour stops. huge facility with no signs to let everyone know you need to enter in the back. many people walking around to the front and not aware they needed to enter in the back. the women’s handicap stall is all the way at the end. so those of us that were pushed in had to use their feet to get the handicap stall. if you’re reading this, do yourself a favor and continue to the florida rest stop.oh, and the restrooms were very, very dirty. major thumbs down !
