This park is top notch! Well maintained very spacious camp sites with a variety of options from primitive to hook ups. Beach access and a great and welcoming visitors center! We rented bikes and wandered about saying hi to everyone and getting waves and hellos back! Clean and modern facilities, this is an amazing park!

Fort Clinch is the anchor to the Fort Clinch State Park. Trails, beaches, and fantastic wooded canopy drives. The fort is a lot of fun to tour and has a 1st Weekend Event with folks dressed up as how the fort was in 1862-64. There are a lot of bicycle rides and runs through the wooded roads. There are 2...

WOW! This was a little slice of heaven. The day we went was super hot and we didn't realize you could swim right at the pier so we did not have our suits but if we were to go back, which we plan to, we will make a full day of it. There was lots to do and we only... More

With the hurricane damage to the fishing pier us "commoners" have no place to fish off a pier/bridge other than driving all the way to the south end. This pier needs to become a priority to get fixed but sad but true it will be years it seems before this works it's way to the top of the list. Great... More

We checked in on Friday afternoon and were very excited about camping at the beach. We had a tent site on the beach loop. We pulled up & we're very disappointed. The site was a square sugar sand pit barely separated from other camp sites by a wooden rail. In between there were lots of cactus so our kids really... More

At the gate and right away realize staff is super awesome! Hubby was meeting us after work and rather than charge for 2 cars they let us park one car there at the gate and let us drive in the park in the other car. $6 per car. We drove down to the fort which was another $6 for the... More

Try to schedule your trip to Fort Clinch on the first weekend of the month when the group of reenactors are demonstrating their jobs and educating the groups visiting the fort. The history is fascinating and the actors bring the fort "back to life in the 1860's during the Civil War". The scenery is beautiful as you look at the... More
