A part of the park system since 1935, Fort Clinch is one of the most well-preserved 19th century forts in the country. Although no battles were fought here, it was garrisoned during both the Civil and Spanish-American wars. During the 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps began preserving and rebuilding many of the structures of the abandoned fort. Daily tours with period reenactors depicting garrison life bring the fort to life for visitors. Sunbathing, swimming, and beachcombing are popular activities at the beach. Anglers can fish from the pier or take advantage of excellent surf fishing. Hikers and bicyclists can enjoy a six-mile trail through the park. Self-guided nature trails provide opportunities to learn about and observe native plants and wildlife. A full-facility campground and a youth camping area provide overnight accommodations. Located north of the city of Fernandina Beach, off State Road A1A.

A beautiful park with so much to offer campers. Hugh trees, large sites, river and ocean access, an old fort to visit and monthly reenactments of fort life. Close to picturesque old town with lots of shopping and restaurants. Top of my list.

The campground is great and offers two campgrounds, the Amelia Island & Atlantic Beach campgrounds. Both are very shaded with exceptional amenities and the rangers are polite and helpful. Beaches are awesome, and the park offers some off-road biking for the more adventurous type. Great place to just relax and enjoy your self.
