Koreshan State Park RV & Campground Guide


You'll transport yourself back to the 1800s when you visit Koreshan State Park. Here, a grand mansion looks out over Victorian gardens, and silent paths wind through ancient oak trees. This was once the home of the Koreshans, a religious group that created their own colony in Estero, Florida. As you wander through the lush grounds and historic buildings, 11 of which are on the National Register of Historic Places, you’d never guess that Fort Myers and Naples are a short drive away. The Estero River runs through the park, drawing anglers and paddlers from miles around.
