The park is rich in history and fun to tour. The shelling here was awesome. There were many varieties and huge shells. The kids really enjoyed this park.

Fun place for collecting shells and sharks teeth. On one side is the Atlantic on the other is the river. $6. Entrance fee allows you to go out & return the same day. Helpful visitor center. Campground also.

Our family visited Fort Clinch while we were vacationing on Amelia Island. It was a fun stop for history lovers and a nice place for my little ones to roam free and climb. The scenery there on the ocean was especially beautiful, too.

We have camped at both the River and Ocean sites numerous times. (We live around the corner!) Ocean is great, fantastic views, deer every evening, as long as you keep in mind you are completely exposed to the elements, and it can be very windy on the north point of the island where these sites are located. The River sites... More

We have visited many forts but this one was different from others. The structure is unique and must be seen to appreciate. Great history. We also camped at Riverside. It was perfect. Nice and quiet. We rode over to the beach camping and are very glad we didn't camp there as it offered little privacy. We were at #33 which... More

We really loved our visit to Fort Clinch SP. It's a lovely park with great views of the lighthouse, as well as some great nature. The beach is also lovely. The best part, though, is the fort itself! It was a totally cool experience and so fun to walk around! So glad we did it!!!

We decided to drive to this park not knowing what to expect. Upon entering the park, you drive through a canopy of trees which is beautiful. There is a restored fort that housed both Confederate and Union soldiers during the Civil War. You can learn about the life the soldiers lived during the war. Several campgrounds are available and there... More

We have visited many Forts in our travels and this one was well worth a visit. The restoration efforts give you a revealing glimpse of the history of Fort Clinch. Very reasonable to enter,and the staff was very informative. Lots of hiking trails in the park and the beach acess is pefect for a walk along the ocean. Highly recommended... More

We had planned on a short visit to the Fort but ended up staying for hours. The history was spellbinding & the Fort with grounds are well maintained.
