Stepping into this fort was amazing to us, as we enjoy learning about the history of an area we are visiting. It has some beautiful views, lots of artifacts, and some original pieces. We got to speak to a reinactor that enlightened us on a few upcoming events and answered any questions that we had! The road leading to Fort... More

Sure the fort is interesting but the highlight is the pier. The pier is a half mile long and allows for views of crashing waves and beautiful wildlife. We don't fish, but enjoyed watching others be successful. The day we went storms were brewing so the waves were breath taking to watch crash on the rocks.

Fort Clinch State Park has the most beautiful beach on Amelia Island. Definitely visit the beach and the finishing pier (shower and changing room on the fishing pier!). There was no swimming on the beach when I visited because the riptide was so strong. But, it was beautiful to walk on and many birds were wading. I also took a... More

Was a great walk. The cover of the trees made a shady place to take a walk. Well maintained. Enjoyed the beauty of the park.

I wish I had planned to spend more time here, we only saw the Fort and left. It's a fun, inexpensive way to spend a day.

My family and I love to visit Forts. We love the history of them. Why they were built where they are and what was there purpose. At Fort Clinch you get to speak to people as if it was back in the day. They stay in character. The grounds of the Fort are well maintained. Worth it.

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.
