We had a wonderful time at Fort Clinch State Park. It was SO CLEAN! The bathrooms were spotless. We are tent campers and appreciated the quite and solitude the park offered. I completely recommend this park. There are awesome trails for hikers and bikers. All the rangers are so helpful and friendly. They even jumped our car when our battery... More

My husband and I visited Fort Clinch State Park- the Fort is so amazing, a photographers paradise! One of my favorite parts was the beautiful pier and the rocks at the beach- the shells are just endless! If you want to take some amazing photos, this is the place!

Lots of Great Facilities here for day and/or overnight visits. The pier and beach are top notch. AND the views of the north channel entry point for the submarines from the US NAVY base nearby provide exciting views. And of course in the distance is the famous Cumberland Island. Facilities are well maintained and clean. Very enjoyable

This state park is at the end of the island and A1A. It has 2 campgrounds, one bordering the intracoastal and the other ocean side. A long pier on the ocean side is excellent for fishing and viewing boats on the ocean and inlet. At the northern end of the park is the fort. A fee is charged for this... More

There is so much to do here! Walk the long fishing pier, go shelling on the beach, tour the fort, hike the trails, go birding. You can easily spend a day. Restrooms are clean and available throughout the park.

Easy and pleasurable six miles of biking to and from fort and a great hike literally out in the ocean on a one mile round trip boardwalk pier. Be prepared for windy conditions.
