We went here just by chance and we had a fantastic day out. It was inexpensive and very peaceful. This was a nice example of a Civil War period Fort and the day that we were there they had character actors throughout the Fort. Great scenery and not busy at all - which was a bonus. After visiting here we... More

The drive in is old Florida with live oaks making a pretty scene. The fort is very interesting . Nice bike paths including along the road . We saw alligators and cool birds along the willow trail. We camped at both campgrounds; riverside is more shaded but Atlantic a short walk to the beach

This is an inexpensive and interesting place to tour. Certain days of the week there are authentic characters dressed in costumes of the time, acting and talking in the manner of when this fort was occupied.

It's not going to blow your doors off but for some local history, it was an inexpensive and enjoyable morning. Aside from the fort, there is a 1/2 mile long pier, a bird sanctuary and camping.

spent a relaxing morning at Ft. Clinch on Amelia Island, but just missed the cannon firing. I did see the characters dressed in period clothing walking around and tending their posts. Went to the barracks and even saw one solder snorning. Had to do a double-take to see if he was real. He was. I would go back again.

Nothing like a bit of Civil War history in a beautiful beach setting to keep things in perspective. I can see why Amelia Island's had 8 flags fly over it. Everyone wanted it!

The beaches there are favorites for fishermen. The Fishing Pier, shell hunting, miles of biking and hiking trails, touring the actual Fort and enjoying the views at the end of the island make Ft. Clinch well worth seeing.

Camping, jogging, fishing, biking, hiking or just relaxing. This state park has something for everyone! Worth a day trip, the beaches are great, there is a fishing pier and the fort is a great way to see how our little island was protected. A must see on Amelia Island!
