Fort Caroline is a beautiful place to walk the trails and enjoy a beautiful day outside. Last time I even brought my dog, although i do not think it is a popular place for people to bring pets as i did not see any other dogs out there. It is very peaceful.

Museum has a rare native American artifact: an owl faced totem found locally, a dug out canoe and other good historical and ecological documentation. A great Park ranger during my visit on 13 June. Great nature trail.

With St Augustine so close! people forget about the amazing history that Jacksonville has. Fort Carolina Memoria is a fantastic place to know more about history, spend a great time, walk, and to realized that St. Augustine and Fort Carolina history are connected. Great great place! The museum is little but beautiful!

This is a great stop when driving with the family. The display building is small but the exhibits are informative and kid friendly. The rangers are very friendly and easy to talk to. The recreation of the fort is fantastic to explore. Walk the trails but be ready for humidity and soft footing. Overall, this was a great opportunity to... More

There is a small museum in the visitor center that is very hands on, which is great for kiddos. Definitely need attire for going up and down trail paths. The views of the river are fantastic. Pack a picnic and enjoy the scenery. While the actual "fort" on site is a reproduction, it's still neat to walk around and read... More

Very interesting. The grounds are well taken care of. The nature walk was very easy with only a few rough patches. The park itself is beautiful. The fort is small, but it is a recreation as the actual fort's location is not known. The only thing to remember when visiting here is that this is a French fort. The only... More

I didn't know this existed until we were driving up the coast from St. Augustine to Jacksonville. My wife is named Caroline so we had to stop. Like most wooded areas, the Spanish moss was everywhere and very beautiful. We took hundreds of pictures. For history buffs as well as nature lovers.

This was an interesting place to visit. The whole time I was here it reminded me of the fort that John Smith built in Disney's "Pocahontas", the way the walls looked weird I know. There isn't much to the fort, as again it's only a recreation do to the exact location of the original fort to be unknown. The total... More

This is a very interesting historical location. They have reproduced the fort based upon historical references. There are paths to walk along and enjoy nature. We have visited several times just for the serenity.
