Fun place to visit on amelia island

Amelia island was a great place to visit. My wife and I enjoyed Fort Clinch a lot and we look forward to returning here again the next time we come to Amelia island

Beautiful place and piece of history, definitely a must see! We biked in and through the park on the gorgeous tree canopy-lined road and trails (foot). The fort is so impressive - well-kept, unbelievable views and love all of the access/view points!

$6 charge per car to enter, but well worth it. You can explore the fort for an extra $2 each or walk to the beach and look for shells and sharks' teeth. There are camping sites in the park and miles of walking and biking trails.

This is a very worthwhile site combining, historical structures, nature and a good place to get some exercise. The State Park personnel are very helpful and friendly.
