Wanted to see where the French has established themselves in Florida. There is no fort there but the ranger was knowledgeable and explained the history of the French settlement.

A great fort. An old reproduction from the 1550s. Overlooking the river. There is also a native hut near bye. If you like history it’s a must see.
