At Fort Clinch State Park, visitors can enjoy the conveniences of modern camping while taking in the rich cultural and natural history of one of Florida’s oldest and most diverse state parks. Nestled at Florida’s most northeasterly tip, Fort Clinch State Park offers 61 campsites in two separate and unique campgrounds.

Clinch State Park campground can accommodate tents, trailers, and RV’s(40 feet maximum). Shady, Spanish moss- laden oak trees lend an old Florida ambience to the Amelia River Campground’s 40 sites. Across the north tip of the park rest 21 sites at the Atlantic Beach Campground. These are typical of the Florida beach landscape which includes snow white sand dunes and sunny sites. Both campgrounds have a dump station, soft drink vending machines, new accessible bathrooms with showers and washing machines. Each campsite has a fire ring, picnic table, potable water and 20 or 30 amp electric hook-up. Well-behaved and attended pets are welcome at both campgrounds.

In addition, there are two campgrounds here with a totally different look to them. Atlantic Beach campground (sites 1-21) is in an open area right near the ocean. Amelia River campground (sites 22-62) has an abundance of shade provided by moss covered trees.

 Fort Clinch State Park is a well-preserved. During the 1930s, the Civilian Conservation Corps began preserving and rebuilding many of the structures of the abandoned fort. Daily tours with period re-enactors depicting garrison life bring the fort to life for visitors. Sunbathing, swimming, and beachcombing are popular activities at the beach. Anglers can fish from the pier or take advantage of excellent surf fishing. Furthermore, hikers and bicyclists can enjoy a six-mile trail through the park. Self-guided nature trails provide opportunities to learn about and observe native plants and wildlife.

Finally, Clinch State Park is open year round to visitors and campers.
