The best camping near Koreshan State Park guide

Overview

About

History takes centerstage at Koreshan State Park. Discover the fascinating legacy of the Koreshans, a religious sect led by Dr. Cyrus R. Teed, who were among Florida鈥檚 most unique pioneers. Gain an insight into their communal lifestyles as you explore the restored late 19th- and early 20th-century buildings and learn their eccentric beliefs about the universe. Then, recreate your own utopia as you check into the state campground, hike along bamboo-shaded trails, enjoy wildlife-watching and bird-watching along the Estero River, or take to the water to boat, paddle, or fish. Koreshan Campground has space for tents and RVs up to 40 feet, all with electric and water hookups. Some campsites even have spots to hang your hammock.

  3. Campsites can book up as fast, so book at least three months in advance or at least six months in advance for holiday weekends.

When to go

The Koreshan historic settlement is open daily from 8am to 5pm, and both the state park and campground are open year-round.
