This is one of the BEST state parks we have been to in Florida. As a family of 5 it was an amazing time and the kids want to go back. The fort is informative and the kids had a blast discovering it. The beach is clean and secluded. The River Campground is amazing. If tent camping, I suggest you don’t camp at the tent only sites.
Awesome campground. Fun times. This place means summer.
We love this campground! Great beach and great town of Fernandina Beach! We were camping on the ocean side this time. Hard to get a site here. They have the fort you can tour also.
We literally were steps away from the beach. They also have shaded spots on the opposite side of the park off the intracoastal. We loved camping so close to the beach and you have to book these spots months in advance normally! FYI dogs are not allowed on the beach here. The beachside camping has zero shade and no privacy between sites. It’s only about twenty spots so it’s really fun at night when people are all out and about. Clean bathrooms and showers right in the center of the spots. We walked along the beach to the old fort one morning and just relaxed! Lots of trails too, beautiful drive once inside the park to the campsites too! Really close to downtown Fernandina and lots of good restaurants and put out golf!
This is what Florida is about. Beautiful nature. Beach, river & sky. Beach sites offer no shade. River sites are better in the heat.
Clean restrooms! Three loops- one by the river mostly wooded and best for tents pop ups and smaller rv. The ocean loop is a dune away from the ocean. Open sites best for large rcvd and ocean lovers. A walk in tent only area with no ac. Same price as other sites though. Longer walk to the bathroom. A cool civil war fort on site (admission) overlooking the inlet. Fishing from the beach or inlet.Close to shopping and the cute town of Fernandina Beach.
Fort Clinch has beaches, woods, with excellent hiking trails, and a civil war eara fort. The tent sites were a bit pricy, considering they don't have electricity. But they are in a very convient location, you can see lots of stars and hear the waves at night while you're sleeping. There were very few bugs. I would reccomend it if you are in the Jacksonville area.
We love this campground and go there every year now. We get a campsite on the river side which offers bigger spots and shade. They offer sites right on the beach too. The bathrooms are the best of any campsite I’ve gone to. The bathrooms are very clean and air conditioned. The river side offers the most beautiful sunsets and lots of dolphins. The beach side is many miles of private beach that’s not crowded. The Fort offers tours and has a small gift shop.
