 About Koreshan State Historic Site

Victorian Bridge, built as a volunteer project in 2005 is a beautiful ornate white bridge next to a large live oak.

The warm days of summer are a great time to be on the water. The Estero River is a great place to get out and paddle. This time of year we are getting frequent afternoon rains and there are many plants in fruit and in bloom. A restoration project is underway at the Membership Cottage in the Historic Settlement. The structure restoration is now complete and look for a new exhibit soon. Summer typically has plenty of camping available and it is still a great time to set up camp for a day or weekend to be with friends and family. Campsites are almost completely booked for the fall and winter at this time.

For more information about our activities please feel free to contact the park on (239) 992-0311.
