Fort Cinch State Park has something for everyone who enjoys the outdoors. You can tour the Civil War era Fort, hike, ride the 6 mile mountain bike trail, go birding, look for sea turtles, fish from the pier or off the beach, camp overnight or just enjoy a leisure drive. The 1427 acre park had beautiful scenery in an undisturbed... More

We had a wonderful day walking the pier and watching people fish. We heard stories about fish and sharks that families caught off the pier. We continued our adventure touring the fort and taking in the beautiful sights of the cannons overlooking the ocean with old time brick forts below. We didn't have time to take in the bike trails...

Great place to step back into to history! Touring the remnants of this old fort is very interesting. It's very well preserved. Placards at each building would be helpful. A map is provided but signage would have been great for my young school-age children who could read and adults. Not to mentioned we guessed about what might have happened in... More

This was our first trip to Fernandina Beach and Fort Cinch State Park was on our list of things to see! It was great! It was amazing to see what was left in the fort and to imaging how people had to live back in that time! If you get to visit Fernandina Beach, make sure to go to Fort... More

Nicely kept with friendly staff, and easy beach access. Although we are not campers or interested in fishing, the park has well kept campgrounds and great finishing pier. We did not bring bug repellent, which is a must in July.

Excellent selection of shark's teeth. This is one of the main reasons we like to go to Fernanadina. The sharks teeth are really good around the fort area.

Very close to the Marriott Residence Inn. A must visit FL State Park if you really like the best of nature, wonderful beach access, fabulous fishing pier, great campgrounds, and a really good staff. This has to be among Florida's BEST State Parks. If visiting in summer be sure to have some bug repellent and good sunscreen.

Well kept and full of history. We rode bike through the fort and spoke with a guide a great length. Worth exploring

The "real Florida" one can see from the nature trails includes many native plant species, ginormous spiders sitting in huge webs suspended over and near the trails, alligators in ponds, gopher tortoises, and more. The beach is gorgeous and pretty sparsely populated with people. Fishermen on the pier were catching a lot of small fish for dinner, and we saw... More
