Fort Clinch State Park
Welcome to Fort Clinch State Park
History meets nature at Fort Clinch State Park. Whether you’re a history buff, nature lover, or a bit of both, enjoy exploring the unique natural and historic resources of this pristine park.
A row of cannons staring across the St. Mary’s River into Georgia are silent testimony to the strategic importance of Fort Clinch during the Civil War. Visitors can explore the fort’s many rooms, galleries and grounds and experience unparalleled living history programs as they learn about the life of a Union soldier. And on the first weekend of every month, a soldier garrison fires cannons and demonstrates other battlefield skills.
But the historic fort is only one aspect of this diverse 1,400-acre park. Maritime hammocks with massive arching live oaks provide a striking backdrop for hiking and biking on the park’s many trails. The park is known for its gopher tortoises, painting buntings, and several other species of wildlife. Camping, fishing, shelling and shark-tooth hunting are also popular activities.
