“So Much To See”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This state park is a gem. There is something for the history buff; the hiker, the fisherman, the camper..............

It's quite a large park that offers a glimpse of it's history at the fort; a couple of camping areas that offer great contrasts, one being heavily wooded and the other open to sea and sky.

There's a great historic fort along with re-enactments, and a fishing pier that is top notch; and loooong!

The entrance fee is reasonable, there's plenty to see if you just want to drive around for a couple of hours. This is a great spot.

“Great History, Nice Park”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Easily accessible, lots of camping spaces (Including RV). Beautiful drive through the park to the fort. Good hiking trails.

Fort Clinch has lots of history and nice views from the ramparts. The fort itself is in various states of decay & restoration. The Guide (in Civil War Union uniform) was incredibly friendly and informative.

Highly recommend!

“Enjoyed the History”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Stopped by here looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon. I had visited Fort Sumter in Charleston, SC and thought maybe it would be the same. Although the two were similar Fort Clinch was mostly intact and had more to offer. The old buildings were open to the public while a small group of musicians dressed in period clothing played the drums and fife. The quartermaster house was very interesting because the guide, also dressed as a union soldier, gave a brief history of the fort and how the quartermaster department worked during the Civil War. I was glad to have visited this park.

“Finest state park in Florida!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Wow, this place has a historic civil war era fort, a half mile long fishing pier, a beautiful ocean beach, nice camp grounds,wildlife and natural beauty; it even has services like a small museum, nice concession stand, a very nice store for supplies, souveniers, and convenince foods and sundries-even fishing gear! The drives are just georgeous , winding through tunnels of ancient oak trees draped with Spanish moss-what a place!
