We thought we were coming to visit a state park and found out about the Civil War fort. This was a wonderful experience and the park is very well kept.

When you visit the fort and see the sparse accommodations provided for our defenders it makes you appreciate our freedoms. If you are in the area I would suggest a visit.

My husband loves history so we went here and toured the fort. It was nice and we learned a lot. We found shark teeth while walking on the beach. That was pretty cool.

On our last day in the area we spent some time in the park. Our only regret is that we didn’t do it earlier in the week when we had more time. Beautiful.

Fort Clinch is interesting, very large inside, multiple countries at various times claimed this place. Very much intact as was back then. 2 color bricks was an interesting factor inn it's building. Fact was it never saw any battle at all.

Drive through the canopy of trees and moss. Walk to the back of the fort where the horseshoe crabs are....watch the dolphins and the ships come in. Worth it.

This park has a 3 mile drive under a beautifully majestic Spanish Moss tree canopy which ends at the historic Ft Clinch. Along the way, we got to see some of the locals (see pictures).
