Well worth the small entrance fee. Beautiful mossed-draped live oaks line the 3 mile drive from the entrance to the Fort and the sandy, white ocean and river beaches. Trails for hiking and biking. Willow Pond is great for spotting alligators. Long fishing pier too. Take the tour of the Fort (addtl small fee) and talk to the soldiers who... More

We loved riding our bikes through the park every day. Everyone that worked there were so helpful and nice! Only $2 per bike for the whole day. It has a beautiful historic canopy road that was a joy to ride. Do yourself a favor and make sure you visit! Walk the pier, go the gift shop, hang on the beach.

Interesting State Park - not just the fort, but the access to beaches, a number of hiking and biking trails. Beautiful location, worth taking the time to go check it out!

We wish we had more time at this park. Starting with the gentleman at the gate, everyone was very friendly and informative. Walked out on the pier and visited the Fort. Loved the gentleman who was dressed in period costume to answer questions. It was a beautiful day, and next time we would like to rent bicycles to ride the... More

Fort Clinch is relaxing and wondrous! Both the river and the beach campsites are wonderful with fabulous views!! The fort itself is so interesting and the trails and main road are fabulous for walking, running and biking.

The fort itself reminded me a lot of Ft Pulaski but maybe a little smaller. I was there in the middle of the afternoon and it was very hot so the water purchased at the entrance came handy. The walk to the fort was not very long once you got the ticket. There were a few visitors at the time... More

This is a fun park to visit for the afternoon! Nice picnic area. Some short hikes. Access to the beach (although we didn't swim there). The tour of the reconstructed fort clinch is worth the small fee. I've camped here before (not this trip) and the campground is fun and nice to stay at!

NOTE. This is a review of the fort, museum and visitor center and not the park or beach. 1. Expectations/Reality 1.a. Caveat/Fair Warning. This fort differs from some of the other forts I have visited in that, while many of the buildings/rooms/spaces have been restored most are not open to visitors; however, the windows are open for visitors to view/photograph....

We arrived at 4:30. Ticket office closed but fort still open (until 5:00). The 30 min seemed like a rushed but adequate self tour of the fort which is in great shape. My 10 yr old son loved it.
