Great historical fort and park right on the beach
May 2021 • Couples
We never even knew this was in Florida, so glad we visited. A lot of preserved history and military fort right on the beach. All kinds of places to explore walk around, take pictures. You can imagine all the barracks and how the soldiers lived when they were housed here. You can look thru all the open windows but not go in the actual housing areas but still can see every thing fine. Also can go on the top to see the ocean view and cannons with stairs or a large ramp. Very cheap admission and definitely worth it. They provide regular camper camping with hookups in the park and primitive camping as well, with bath houses showers etc. plenty of parking and walkways out to the beach. So nice. Would love to come back and camp later, will visit again for sure.

Great for Bikers and Shellers
May 2021
Grab your bike! This landmark provides plenty of great riding. Be prepared to spend hours looking for shark's teeth and shells.
One day we'll actually visit the fort!

Fort Clinch State Park
May 2021
Fort Clinch State Park follows Covid 19 procedures, great staff. They are doing reenactments telling stories of Fort. Besides the beautiful beach, lots of things to do.

Great hike and tour of the fort
Apr 2021
The fort is very interesting and well worth the $2.50 entry. It was a self-guided tour. Be sure to go up top for nice views. We also did a hike which was very pleasant. Mostly in the shade and very enjoyable. Heard lots of birds to accompany us!

Great visit with re-enactment on site
May 2021
We were lucky to go on the first weekend of May when there were reenactment people on site telling stories of the fort. The buildings were not open but you could easily see inside all. The view on the top of the fort is beautiful. That there was never a battle there the fort remains in the form it was from the beginning. Beautiful brick work.

Due to covid restrictions, we couldn't get a tour inside the buildings but there were certain windows that were open so you could see inside.

A little bit of history on a beautiful beach
Apr 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed the walk around the fort as much as visiting the fortress. You can’t get inside the buildings but you can see through the windows the sparse way of living in those days.
