The fort was cool and the drive into the park is very nice. Cool thing to do in town. Can also rent bicycles to bike around the park which is very fun and would recommend!

We were visiting Jekyll Island and looking for something to do on a dreary day. We went to Fort Clinch and spent the entire day there. It was very educational and very well preserved!! Would highly recommend this visit to anyone!!!

We loved Fort Clinch. Our 14 year old daughter thought it was very good, as did mom and dad. We recommend a visit.

I love Fort Clinch! This is a great place to find shells and shark teeth, but you have to get there early and when the tide is just right!

Can’t say enough about this park. Plan to spend several hours. We visited the Fort, then hung out on the beautiful beach, later walked through the tunnels of trees draped with Spanish Moss and hiked a nature trail through thick, beautiful swamps. Worth several visits....More

Large sites, 2 separate campgrounds. Well worth a visit. The fort is especially nice too. We enjoyed it all.

My husband and I really enjoyed our rime at the fort. Well worth the fee. We climbed to the top of one of the bastions and enjoyed the view. Lots of boat activity in the strait. Easy access to miles of beach.
