Fort Clinch has a nice diversity in camping. We stayed on the River Loop which is nestled in the trees, providing complete sun cover and very nice wind protection. The park also offers a Beach Loop with 15-20 sites on the ocean side of the peninsula circling a nice modern bathhouse. It's not actual "beach" camping because you're separated from the beach by a large sand dune, and has no shade. The park does have nice beach access, a 1/2 mile fishing pier, and of course Fort Clinch! The fort is a nice educational tour with excellent access to the facility. Get right up and touch the cannons, look out the rifle slots, climb up on the embankments. No watching from behind the tensa-barriers! The workers at the fort are dressed in period attire and even do a monthly battle re-enactment. We'll definitely be back. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Go see the fort . Just $2/person and easy trail from campground to fort. Bike to the long fishing pier and walk the beach and catch a beautiful sunset. We also enjoyed Fernandina Beach's historical downtown and restaurants.

Stayed on the riverside. Secluded, wonderful camping spots. Sand base, and not too level at that. Close to beach and fort tour. Quite a ways off I-95.but close to A1A. Very poor cell service and no wi-fi. A hidden gem. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed on the beach side which was beautiful. It was very windy several of the days we were here; I think the river side is not quite as windy. We plan to stay on the river side next time just so we can try both sides. The whole park is really beautiful. The bathrooms are some of the cleanest I have ever seen. Since there was no sewer hookups and we were here for 2 weeks, we had to use the restrooms often, so it was nice that they were so clean. Verizon 4G worked well there. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here on the beach side two nights and it is a quiet and peaceful park. The beach is calm but there are signs warning no swimming. Site was close to the crossing and roomy. There is a dump station located on the road out that is easy to get in and out of. I would stay here again. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Motorhome.

Excellent historic park. Facilities are excellent and a lot to do. The park has great biking and hiking in one area and great fishing and a great beach in another area. We stayed in the shaded river loop, but access to the beach is only a short drive. The fort tour, whether self-guided or guided by ranger is a must. We saw a lot of wild life. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Motorhome.

Very quiet! Bathrooms were the best we've seen in a state park! Bugs in the evening were relentless... but, welcome to the south! The one downfall was that it's 3 miles from the entrance to the riverside camp loop. That's good in some ways, but makes for quite a hike if you want to leave the park on bikes. Our site was a little small compared to some of the others.

We went to see the beachside loop, and it was really nice too, but we were glad we opted for the shaded loop by the river. The summer sun is brutal when trying to keep your rig cool. We hope to visit again in the winter sometime and stay in the beach loop. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the Atlantic Beach Campground side for 4 nights. Short walk to the beach across a boardwalk over the dunes! Small campground with no shade, no privacy sites, and LOTS of sticker burrs (sand spurs) which were horrible if you have a dog. However, we would stay here again because we enjoyed getting to know our fellow campers and we enjoyed the closeness of the beach. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This was a beautiful Florida State Park that had a lot of attractions in the area. The drive through the park was beautiful. The pier in the park was the longest pier I'd ever seen. We'd walk daily on the pier and visit with the fishermen. Biking in the park was great. Of course it's always about the campsite and ours #61 was just okay. It was a little short and directly across from the dump station. Why they put the dump station right in the campground is beyond me. Usually they are a little way away from the campsites. We were in the loop with all the foliage which I think is the better of the two. The campsites on the outside of the loop looked to be the largest and that is what I'd choose if I returned. The other loop was closer to the water but the sites were right on top of one another without any foliage in between. And you couldn't see the water from your campsite so I don't know what the advantage would be. The town the campground was in was really interesting. It had lots of shops and restaurants. I'd definitely stay at the campground again. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had a nice stay here and plan to return. We were in the Beach camping area, where the back-in was a little challenging (i.e., narrow roadway, posts and fence), but we made it. Site was wide enough for awning and slide. Restroom was new and spotless. The beach is beautiful....great for walking and shelling. Nice place. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a decent state park campground that has a view of the beach, even though there is a berm that separates the beach and the campground. The beach side was more to our liking, the heavily wooded other side of the campground had way to much bug activity for our liking. The sites are sand, so blocks under the jacks of our motor home was a must. I would stay here again. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our second visit to this campground. You really cannot go wrong with any site. Both times we have stayed on the river campground. The river campground is shady and cooler. The beach side does not have any tree canopy. The drive to the campground is long and tricky. I recommend that you arrive before dark because there are a lot of trees to watch out for but the road is wide and paved. We had no problems. You will have to maneuver not to hit the trees. We do not like that this park is not pet friendly. You cannot take the dogs anywhere near the beach at any time and there are very limited areas to walk the dogs. My other complaint is the parking situation. We were there during 4th of July week and the parking situation was terrible. There were cars and boats parked everywhere including double parked in non-designated spots. Some sites had 4 vehicles plus boat, jet ski, and camper. We complained to the ranger and the response was that each site can have up to 8 people so that means potentially 8 vehicles plus boats! And we really saw this. Boats were sitting parked on the side of the road for days. Our impression was that the rangers do not enforce parking at all. Also, quiet hours are not enforced and really the rangers do not do a good job patrolling and enforcing the rules. Campers were up partying loudly until very late. On the other hand, the bathrooms are very clean and updated. The beach is beautiful! We would be back because of the natural beauty of the area and the town is wonderful. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is an awesome Florida State Park. There are 2 campgrounds here, the river loop and the beach loop. We stayed on the beach loop and toured the river loop. The river loop is heavily wooded/shaded with the large sites having growth between them and a fair amount of privacy. You can walk to the river at the end of the campground. We stayed at the beach loop where the sites are not shaded at all and fairly close to each other, but there is plenty of room for an awning at each site. Water pressure was good, but the water had a sulfur odor to it. No 50 amp service at the beach loop. Local TV reception was good and our Verizon WiFi worked great. We stayed in site 9 which was next to the beautiful, brand new boardwalk out to the Atlantic beach area. It is a great site if you have a rear window as it looks out on the dunes and the ocean. Sites 8 & 9 have the best views. The ocean beach comes with some warnings, like dangerous currents and marine wildlife, but the sand is just beautiful and so is the view. The rest rooms in the beach loop are modern & very clean, with a special private handicap accessible room I appreciated to use with my young granddaughter. Be sure to tour the fort ($2/person). It is a step back in time, very well maintained. Engage one of the interpretive guide folks as you will have a historic conversation that might have taken place in the 1800’s. We loved it here and would stay again. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Travel Trailer.
