Prepare to take a step back in time! This place is so beautiful and calm and the guards walk around in uniform and place the part!!! They never break character. Really cool and informative

“Florida History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Having lived in Tennessee for a few hears I became a Civil War buff. This fort wet my whistle and did not dissappoint. Beautifully maintained, and even has a uniformed Yankee for questions. Pretty cool.

“Fort Clinch great way to spend a day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Lots of hiking/biking trails, an awesome pier that goes out into the channel for fishing. The old Fort which is worth spending the extra few dollars to take the tour

“Make a point to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I am a history & Civil War buff and been to lot of battlefields, parks etc. The fort itself drew me and it did not disappoint. Fabulous & lovingly maintained. The park was a bonus - absolutely beautiful. Great place for a leisurely bike ride with (or without) the kids.

“Beautiful Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

The restoration of the civil-war era fort guarding the ocean inlet access to North Florida ports was excellent. It really transported you back to that time to walk around it. I never saw such large muzzle-loading round shot cannons! You don't have to be a history buff to appreciate it. Many of the artifacts and elements of the restoration are surprisingly accessible to those touring the site and not locked behind display cases. Very nice, casual, accessible atmosphere to the place. Of special note is the park itself. Miles of roads and trails winding through the palmetto and moss-draped oaks of the real "old Florida" with viewing pull-offs and trail access points throughout. Definitely worth the $6/car park fee and the $2/person fort tour fee. It would be a great place to ride bikes.
