Tent camped recently with friends. Is a nice park. We were in the river campground. Looked like all sites are shady. The restrooms/showers were very clean and close to the sites. There is an area on the river(which looks like a bay) with benches and two large hammocks. The fort is interesting and fun to explore. Went to the beach... More

We got there fairly early and aside from a few fisherpeople on the pier, the place was almost deserted. The interior of the park is a great place for a hike or bike ride. The beach is very nice and uncrowded. The pier is half a mile long and nice walk. We will go back again when it is cooler.

This was our first trip to Fort Clinch. They have two camping areas, river side and beach side. We stayed on the beach side. There is zero shade but there was a comfortable breeze blowing most of the time so it was pleasant. The bath house looks brand new and every time we used the facilities it looked like it... More

We're really glad we ventured over to the park & went through the old fort. Admission for all was only $8 & is self guided. The walk is easy & even came across a "union-soldier" in uniform that helped explain the history on a first person basis.

Fort Clinch State Park is one of the best kept secrets in Florida. You can bike, camp, fish, see shore birds and sea turtle nests. Stroll along the beach and collect sharksteeth. Take time to explore Fort Clinch where park service guides explain history and the activities of daily life. If there is a reenactment taking place, the reenactors are... More

Fort Clinch State park is a must see when visiting the area. The cost is $6 per car to get in and well with it. The beach access is just breath taking. Several people were there however it still seemed secluded and private. Beautiful pier and rocks below made a great place for pictures. The Fort itself is a nice... More

Lovely state park with old growth trees. Campsite offered privacy. The river side was so beautiful that we stayed an extra night. Never did visit the fort. Maybe next time!

It was very hot the day I visited and shade was the only relief from the heat. I walked the entire fort, which has spectacular views of the harbor. The fort has an interesting history from the civil war to WW II. Getting around the fort is easy and has noteworthy points of interest. They also have soldiers to answer... More

We brought 3 young kids to the fort to explore. The grounds are well maintained and there are many rooms and areas open to the public. It was a nice glimpse into the past.

The beach was amazing! We saw a pod of dolphins playing, we found several horseshoe crabs, and we found countless cool shells aside from just clamshells! The fort was very interesting and it was cool how you got to walk around all the different buildings. However, we went when it was WAY TOO HOT and had to leave earlier than... More
