 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.

A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Robert Brooks

The days are getting shorter but we still have warm temperatures so why not come to the historic Koreshan Settlement and take a self-guided tour of our gardens and buildings.  You can sit along the Estero River in the shade of the historic Bamboo Landing or watch the Koreshan story in the founders House.  The Art Hall is open to the public on when docents are available, feel free to call the park to find out when they are there.   Picnic facilities are available for a comfortable day along the Estero River or if activity is what you crave you can rent a canoe and paddle 3.5 miles out to Mound Key Archæological State Park.  It is a great time set up camp for a weekend or a week to be with friends and family, so ask us about renting one of our many available campsites suitable for everything from tents to motor homes.   For more information about our activities please feel free to contact the park on 1.239.992.0311.
