Fort Clinch State Park, Fernandina Beach

With a collection of different environments, Fort Clinch State Park is both a natural and historical landmark. The actual fort, which was founded in the 18th century, is open daily for touring. You can experience a variety of outdoor activities here, such as pier fishing, hiking, and shelling. The Amelia River runs through the park, and a campground with full facilities rests near its banks. Another campground is near the Atlantic Ocean. The first weekend of every month military reenactments fill the fort with performances of historical battles.
