There was more to this than we thought, we were there during the week so some parts were not open, but there was a lot of information about the Fort, it was well taken care of, view of the water was great, there were hikes and bike trails and for campers, a wonderful campground with hook-ups. All in all, worth... More

A very pretty drive thru a canopy of oaks with moss. Fascinating array of birds by the fishing pier. Wish there were more trails to explore.

My 10 year old and I spent the day here and had a great time. The fort was cool and educational without my daughter realizing it! We also went to the beach which was nice but odd because they where working on some sort of a pipeline with heavy machinery while we were trying to relax on the beach. Did... More

My wife and I visited Fort Clinch last week while visiting Amelia Island. It was a chilly cloudy day so we figured it was worth a shot. The park is very beautiful and has beach access. The fort is pretty cool to see in person. It was never actually used in the civil war so it's in great shape considering... More

There's a very long fishing pier that's nice to walk on and a fort to explore. Not to mention the beautiful beach that offers good shelling and, if you're lucky, a shark's tooth find.

Entrance fee is $6.00 per carload which buys you a full day's access to a nice, uncrowded beach, a half-mile long pier, several great picnic areas, splendid nature trail, birding trail and seabird rookery, and clean, convenient restroom facilities. Depending or the timeboyear, you will see a wide variety of wildlife, including tortoises, alligators and lots of seabirds. For an... More

If you go to Amelia Island, do not miss Fort Clinch. From the moment you drive through the entrance, you are transported back to what this part of Florida looked like before the highways, malls, and developments. Not only are there wonderful walking and biking trails within the park, but you can also camp there, and visit the actual fort... More

I had not idea that the Union had established this fort on the northeast corner of Florida. It is history-come-alive, you can feel what life was like for the soldiers. There's a fine film and some actors who bring it all to life.
