Fort Clinch State Park

Fort Clinch is one of the most well-preserved 19th century forts in the country, and is one of the first State Parks to be opened to the public. That’s all I’ve got, but it was a great place to visit!

We spent 3 days at the Amelia Beach campground, which is about a 5 minute bike ride from the fort itself, and about a 30 second walk to the beach – double awesome.

As a quick side note: when we first arrived, we were asked, for the first time ever, to exit our vehicle and enter the office to fill out our papers. It seemed very formal for a state park, when you have a reservation, and I had no idea what “papers” they were referring to.

Anastasia State Park

My faith in the FL state park system has been restored. Anastasia State Park is gorgeous and wooded with squirrels and spanish moss hanging from the trees. And that’s just the campground. There’s a beach…a glorious, sugary, amazing stretch of semi-private wonderfulness with shells and sand dunes.

This is, hands down, the best beach we’ve been to so far.

Oh, and no bugs :)
