This is a well preserved fort. You can climb up to the top and access just about everything in the fort. Great place for kids.

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.
