Welcome to the Fort King National Historic Landmark



COVID-19 Closings

The Fort King Visitor Center is currently closed until further notice. However, the park grounds, including the Fort, the Heritage Garden, and the trails, are still open for exploration. The six-feet physical distancing rule must always be maintained, and face coverings are recommended in accordance with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) directions.




The park is open seven days a week from sunrise to sunset or 7 p.m. (whichever comes first). The Visitor Center is open Tuesdays – Fridays, Noon-5 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Closed on Sundays and Mondays. 


Park amenities include a reconstructed fort, the Visitor Center complete with Fort King and Florida history, a library, video viewing and artifacts found across the site. There is also a Heritage Teaching Garden, an interpretive trail that descends from the top of the hill (where the fort stands) to the Seep Spring and down through a ravine that includes both foreign and native plant and tree species. Pack a lunch and make some memories at one of our picnic facilities. Group visits of ten or more should call Fort King to schedule. Arrangements can be made to see the site for persons with mobility issues.
