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.

My husband and I had an extremely enjoyable day at Fort Clinch. The guides at the fort were very knowledgeable and fun. They provided a great deal of information and made the visit very interesting. The fort is very well kept. We also went to the beach and the fishing pier. Both were great.

My family and I usually visit Fernandina every summer. One thing we always look forward to is renting scooters and riding through Fort Clinch. The ride is so peaceful with all the trees and Spanish moss providing a very welcome shade. The beach is WAY less crowded and is great for shell collectors. Oh yeah, and The Fort is pretty... More

I know the main beach is free, but it is well worth $6.00 to park at For Clinch State Park. The beach is less crowded and the bath house is bigger.
