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.

We wish we had more time at this park. Starting with the gentleman at the gate, everyone was very friendly and informative. Walked out on the pier and visited the Fort. Loved the gentleman who was dressed in period costume to answer questions. It was a beautiful day, and next time we would like to rent bicycles to ride the... More

Fort Clinch is relaxing and wondrous! Both the river and the beach campsites are wonderful with fabulous views!! The fort itself is so interesting and the trails and main road are fabulous for walking, running and biking.

The fort itself reminded me a lot of Ft Pulaski but maybe a little smaller. I was there in the middle of the afternoon and it was very hot so the water purchased at the entrance came handy. The walk to the fort was not very long once you got the ticket. There were a few visitors at the time... More
