Small area and parking lot for a monument and ok view of the river and ongoing construction. Best for history lovers. A 10 minute stay and pair with a longer visit to the close by Fort Caroline Monument. Otherwise, nothing else at this site.

This is a very small stop near Fort Caroline. Basically the parking lot and a deck.The view at one time I'm sure was spectacular. Now it is a giant dirt pit with tons of dump trucks and a highway view. Not what you think when...More

This has to be the smallest state facility I have ever visited. If you have 10 minutes you have seen the entire place. With that said, the view is spectacular over the St John's River and if you are lucky, a ship will pass by.

Short little walk tot he monument, love the boards that tells you what you are looking at from that point. Very quiet when I went. I could've sat for hours just enjoying the shade and the view.

Ribault Monument is the site where the French erected a stone column on a high bluff. This bluff overlooks the Saint Johns River. The Intracoastal Waterway is also visible from this location.

This is one of the more unique sites in Florida. The view from the bluff is one that is rarely had in the Sunshine state due to the elevation at nearly 100 feet. It is a beautiful view of the St. Johns River into the...More

One of the first places I visited with my future wife back in the mid 70s. We still go back. You go for the view which is on a bluff overlooking the St. Johns River. Historical!

We made a quick stop to check this place out while we were visiting Fort Caroline National Memorial. It was a great opportunity to take pictures of the island.
