The fort was very interesting and cost just a few dollars. The grounds are beautiful and clean. The campground has nice shaded and private sites and the bathrooms were new and clean.

It had been years since I had been to the Fort. So glad we went again. I had forgotten how interesting it was. And a great video is shown before going in the fort. Be sure to look towards Cumberland Island. I didn't realize how near we were!

It's a great park with camping, bike trails, walking trails, a fishing pier, a jetty, boat ramps, beautiful beaches both on the Ocean and river, and a historic 19th century Fort which saw limited use during the Civil War. You can see alligators, deer, racoons, Roseate Spoonbills, Pelicans. cranes, frogs, squirrels and other native Florida species. I have camped there... More

The fort was very interesting. The architecture was amazing, and each room came to life with history. The antiques and the old tools were really cool to see. KyFam

Nice bike ride to the fort. The mock soldiers were quite entertaining. Great for history buffs especially civil war buffs

Not much we can add.the camping is as good as any other place in Florida. The weather was iffy but tolerated. We camped here in a 40 ft motorhome site #4.just behind the dunes. Due to a death in the family, we had to leave after the 3rd day. Note to other's, be sure to reserve a spot at least... More

Even though it was raining, it was a delightful drive through the park, and the fort had some roofed areas. A wonderful thing to do in Fernandina Beach. There are views of the salt marsh, a lovely beach area, bird information kiosk, and the Fort. Will go back. Only $4 admission.

We went on a day when volunteers dress up and portray what life was like on the Fort back in the day. It was a beautiful day and very enjoyable. Lots of history and lots of picture perfect spots.

The fort is pretty much as it was in the old days. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Officer on duty in period uniform able to answer lots of question.
