This park is just beautiful & in the off-season, not busy at all. It costs $6 a car load, but you can come & go all day long. The public beach is usually full of shells.

Love the peace and quiet of Fort Clinch Park. They have a wonderful beach access. The park is a great place to visit even if you don't camp. A great place for a picnic lunch, bike ride, or walk on the beach. A must if you go to Fernandina

The Fort was a wonderful surprise. Most places, like tis, close off most areas and you may get to peak thru windows. This Fort you can walk everywhere. Also, while we were there, they had people in civil war character taking you around and explaining everything, as if it were just happening. Our guide was Private Wesley

While the imposing physical presence of the structure is impressive, it's the staff (present on weekends) who make the experience unique.

I enjoyed the trail leading to the fort. I really enjoyed the canopy of trees over the road leading to the fort.

This little park is just packed with interesting things to do. Fort Clinch is supposed to be the highlight, but our favorite feature was the beautiful beach.

You have the freedom to walk & explore. There was a "soldier" in uniform available to answer questions. It was neat to go up top with the cannons. A nice way to see history and take some great pics!

We decided to bring our bikes this year for our annual trip. Biking in Ft Clinch is excellent and the staff is very friendly.
