We visited the fort and enjoyed the history presented by one of the "soldiers" that was there. It was really interesting to see the different parts of the fort up close. There's a little cafe in the gift shop and I tried the key lime tart which was delicious!

This park has an interesting fort to tour for not very much money. There is also a fishing pier, though you can fish off most beaches anyways, and a number of nice beaches. PokeStops around the fort and fishing pier.

This is another one of the beautiful Florida State Parks. The drive into the park after you pay at the gate is about a 2 mile slow drive through many low hanging Live Oak Trees with the Spanish Moss hanging down. It is just spectacular. There is a wonderful beach area to use. You can walk out a long way... More

We loved biking through this park. It was beautiful and well-shaded and for the most part very flat. So great for people who don't bike frequently. We just enjoyed the natural beauty and the shade and the great exercise we got!

Watched the cannons fired at 3pm. The history of of the fort is reviewed in quick details and followed up with a weapons demonstration by soldiers dressed in period clothing. Far better the the fort at St. Augustine/

This is a very nice state park. We were there on Tuesday and there were only a few other people in the park. We drove directly to the fort along a 3 mile road that was just beautiful with the canopy overhead.. It looked like Florida from the past. Before you go into the fort, I would recommend viewing the... More

This park has something for everyone! The fort has something for the history buffs, the nature trails provide ample activities for the active nature lovers, and the beach provide plenty of swimming and shelling. After the fact, we learned the area in front of the fort is great for finding sharks' teeth. There is a very long fishing pier to... More

Had a fantastic time, always friendly staff and reenactment actors available to answer questions or even play the fife and drums for you. Fort is in excellent condition. Great sea views. Lots of information about the area before, after and during the Civil War. Beach and pier are uncrowded. Lots of sharks teeth! Great for bird watching or just a... More

Fort Clinch is a Civil War era brick fort located in the middle of Fernandina Beach. There are guides dressed in Civil War era costumes to explain life in 1864 at Fort Clinch. There is also a small museum and gift shop. If you want to walk on a nature trail, the state park offers a beautiful one. There is... More
