Yellow Bluff Fort Historic State Park is a Florida State Park in Jacksonville, Florida. It is located near the mouth of the St. Johns River, a mile south of State Road 105 on New Berlin Road. On September 29, 1970, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Yellow Bluff 'Fort' was not a fort at all, but instead an armed and fortified camp constructed during the Civil War. It served to protect shipping supply lines to Jacksonville and through the St. Johns valley from Union attacks. The camp was built in early 1862, holding over 350 personnel at some points of its existence, which lasted until the end of the war.
