Great view of lighthouse. We saw deer (mom and baby) crossing the road. Fort was....a fort. Beach was easily accessible and had a great amount of space. Worth checking out.

We didn't have a ton of time and wanted to bike the blissfully shady road that leads from the entrance to the fort before a storm hit. The enormous live oaks draped with moss are worth the price of admission even if you don't go...More

Coming down the Florida Atlantic Coast, across the Georgia border, this fort is a must to understand early Florida's trials and the people who "built" Florida. Great artifacts and well-maintained garrison. Well versed guide in period attire gave a special tour to our group.

We visited the fort during our stay on Amelia Island. Definitely worth the total of 11.00 for two people to visit the fort and the beach.

Excellent area to surf fish with ease of access . Boardwalk great for those with disabilities. Park has three areas for fishing. One large camping area and you can tour old Fort Clinch

We love to go to Ft. Clinch because it's very close to where we stay, and because the history is so rich. The people who work there are very knowledgeable and can answer all your questions!

We rode bikes in to see Fort Clinch. The entry for bikers is $2 per person into the park. The 3 mile ride one way to the Fort was very pleasant. While there is not a dedicated bike path people are very respectful of bikers....More
