As soon as you walk past the visitor's center, you are taking a step back in time. As you continue you walk across the drawbridge, you can almost hear the voices of the men who occupied the fort. Absolutely memorable!

The Civil War history - and, earlier - are both abounding here. This is obscure history which very few know. Breathtaking site - at conjunction of Amelia River and Atlantic Ocean. True nature is preserved.

Fun day trip! We biked here and got to explore everything it had to offer. It's a pretty street to bike down and Fort Clinch history was interesting to learn about and visit.

It is a beautiful drive thru the park. The fort is very interesting and has beautiful views of the water.

We were able to enjoy cooling off in the ocean and even saw some dolphins swimming out a ways from the shore

Our kids enjoyed the fort very much. Lots of cool nooks to explore. Beautiful seaside views. Great in the fall/winter when not so hot.

We decided to visit Fort Clinch when it became too windy on the beach for our umbrellas to stay upright. So glad we did! $6 per car plus $2.50 per person to enter the fort was well worth it. The park service people were friendly...More
