The Fort was very interesting. The corporal who greeted us was in full uniform and was living in the 1800's. The entire park is very large. We rented a couple bikes and the kids rode around the island while we set up on the beach. New bathrooms/showers/changing area at beach. Very hot here though, strongly recommend having an umbrella or... More

The drive back takes a few minutes, but getting to the fort takes you back in time. The staff is very helpful in the souvenir shop. They allow you to investigate the fort pretty much on your own. The day we went was beautiful and cool for summer, so that was a bonus. Go to the beach area, too. It's... More

I will discount the incredibly miserable humidity the day we were there. It wasn't anybody's fault, but made it harder to enjoy. We learned a lot of the history of this fort because they have men dressed in period military clothing. Felt sorry for them in their wool clothes in 100% humidity. But they were so at ease and talked... More

We only went to the beach area, but there was a nice, new-looking bathroom house on the boardwalk walking down the beach which can come in handy for a long day spent out there. The beach itself was not crowded and was very relaxing - a nice from my local beach!

Was interesting; just wish the "soldiers" talked more about the place. They were playing intruments and in costume as if they were living during that time.

The road is a beautiful canopy road, and the fort is a great walking experience. A lot of brick tunnels and spiral staircases that lead to different rooms, the top, etc. A lot of details to see. Great view of the harbor. The 1/2 mile long pier is a great walk out along the jetty that separates the harbor from... More

Touring the Fort was excellent though it got very hot after being there for quite sometime visiting all the building but well worth the visit for a bit of history.

My brother was married on the beach at Fort Clinch State Park by the pier. It was just perfect! Wedding or not, it is a beautiful place to visit while on Amelia Island. Don't miss out! Our family thoroughly enjoyed it!

This is a great place for a family outing. The sites and history make it well worth the trip. You can spend the day relaxing and spending quality time with family and friends.

The fort is a great morning or afternoon activity especially for kids while visiting Amelia Island. You can spend about two hours exploring the area. Although we were unable to tour at night due to weather, the park offers evening candle light historical tours on certain Saturdays of the month.
