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!
