But after 84, I returned to tent camping with my younger 2 sons for vacation fun.
One of my favorite places was Cumberland Island National Seashore, Georgia.
Of course you have to take a ferry to get to it, since it's an island. Not many vehicles except those of the Park service and a few people who own homes there. So there are many miles of tree shaded areas, which is good because the woods are still and very hot in the summer..

And a ruin of a Carnegie mansion, destroyed by fire in 1959.

I remember that you call on January 1 to make a reservation for the ferry, so that you can get on island and off again. I once camped on the island in group camping, which is fun, but the last time I went we camped in St. Marys, GA both before and after our day in the sun. It was still exhausting.
