I'll be camping at Fort Clinch State Park in a couple weeks. While I'm there, does my camping tag get me in to other nearby Florida state parks such as Amelia Island state park or Talbot Island state park or do I have to pay their entrance fees as well?

You can buy an annual pass that will get you in w/o added cost but no discount on camping. If you are a service connected veteran you can get a free lifetime pass with documentation from the VA. I have never heard of a tag getting you in any park for free. So far as I know that just a vanity tag who's only function is to remove a big additional fee from your wallet.

Show your pass that you got, that should be on your window. It should get you into other state parks with-in the same state. Most states do have this courtesy. You can always ask your park office.

Florida Park passes are a plastic credit card sized card not a window sticker. And I don't even see a Florida Parks Vanity tag, here is the brochure: FL vanity tags There are way too many of them IMO.
And if you mean this $14 front plate: FL Parks merchandise that would be an amazing bargain, a $14 plate in place of a $120 annual pass, dream on in other words
Maybe in North Carolina tho, but we are a bit smarter than that down here...heh

Florida does not care if you are camping in another FL park. They will charge you to enter a different one.
The only exception I know of is Fred Gannon in Niceville and Henderson beach in Destin as they are considered sister parks. There may be others like that, if so I have no personal experience. Sometimes it just comes down to the attendant.

The rule is you need to pay the entrance fee at the other parks. But, I've also been left in free by explaining to the person at the gate that I wanted to check out the park and that I'm staying at xxxx Park and showing them my pass. It all depends on the person at the gate.

Last year and the year before, we were staying at Top Sail SP but would drive over to Grayton Beach SP to swim. We were Florida residents at the time and was never charged a second entry fee.
