  • Whether you're on an Indigenous ancestry quest, writing a novel, or just need to be inspired—this is the place to visit. With lush vegetation, historical remnants, and romantic trails, this local gem holds centuries of secrets and endless enjoyment. Don't forget to stop in the museum and learn from the welcoming (and quite knowledgeable) curators; they really enhance the experience!
  • Went with the family to see the Nina and the Pinta in port and stumbled upon this old fort. Awesome place for a walk with beautiful views of the river.
  • Great place to learn the history of ST.Marks. Movie is a great addition and park workers were friendly and considerate.
  • Great history
  • This is an amazing and entertaining historical attraction for all ages. The recreations are astounding and the staff (in period garb) are totally engaging. This is not to be missed. Just seeing the recreation of the too big to be believed Apalachee council house is worth the very reasonable admission fee. The orientation movie and classy museum are bonuses.
