He grounds are beautiful, very natural with lots of wildlife. Love the huge Live Oaks with all the Spanish moss. The fort is very well preserved and sits on a on a beautiful waterfront setting. The park staff personnel are very knowledgeable and friendly. Must see. The only down side is that nothing really historic ever happened here but what... More

The park grounds were nice and clean. The facilities were also clean. I enjoyed my walk on the pier, and I was able to photograph pelicans and a fishing cormorant. I also enjoyed the trail around Willow Pond.

This park is insane. The scenery is stunning and the wildlife abundant. Both the beach and river are great places to waste time. The only downer is that some of the campsites are way too close to each other. I like privacy, my initial site was 43 but it was right on top of someone else's campsite. There are a... More

You drive about three miles down a beautiful winding road covered with Banyon trees and moss. At one turn off there is a half mile long pier ideal for fishing or walking. Clean restrooms and vending machines. Miles of beautiful beaches with changing rooms,showers and more clean bathrooms. At the other side of the park is Fort Clinch. There is... More

This State Park is an absolute GEM and a Must See for anyone visiting Amelia Island. It is just a tranquil and relaxing place to visit.... from the drive thru the moss covered trees to the fishing pier and the actual fort. Take your time and enjoy.

I have visited Fort Clinch on numerous occasions with a variety of people. Everyone loves it. It is so interesting. The workers are amazing, knowledgable and super friendly. It def brings out the kid in you with so many areas to explore. (I am thinking about the fort itself.) Great place to ride your bike, take a hike, fish off... More

We got to the park around 4:30 p.m., too late to hike or do anything but walk along the very long pier and watch the sunset and the ocean. But, when I return to Amelia Island, I want to spend 2-3 hours here. I'm a photographer, and while I did photograph the amazing pier, my time was much too limited... More

I gleaned so many wonderful pictures for my collection from Ft. Clinch. It was a wonderful historic day in the park and Fort. The scenery was stunning in the mid day light against the aging bricks.
