Koreshan Unity Symbol

The temperature in SW Florida makes every day a great day for getting into the great outdoors. One of my favorite activities in the park is taking my family paddling on the Estero River where we can paddle beneath the large oak trees and witness the karst limestone formations that make up Florida’s foundation. It’s a great adventure for everyone in the family! Canoe and kayak rentals are available at the Ranger Station.

I also enjoy participating in Florida’s history, and visiting the Koreshan Unity Settlement is a great way to see how creative Florida’s pioneers truly were. Guided tours of the Settlement are available twice per day Wednesday through Sunday during the winter season and once per day on weekend mornings the remainder of the year.

If you have an upcoming family event, consider utilizing the new pavilion in the picnic area. Pavilion reservations can be made at the Ranger Station or by calling 239-992-0311.
