An Interesting Historical Stop-Over in SW FL
The main interest at Koreshan is the historical Koreshan Settlement which is on-site and I do think it’s worth the stop to have a look. The Koreshanites believed the entire universe existed in a hollow sphere and built an elaborate colony in Estero led by their charismatic leader, Dr. Teed where they researched their beliefs and educated their followers. All the original buildings are preserved and it’s a fascinating little visit. Other than that the campground is nice but only so-so. Sites are a tad close for our liking and some are rather small, although access is decent everywhere. There are good facilities and a nice, little nature-trail. There’s also a river on-site which lends itself to fishing and canoeing. This place doesn’t really have enough of a draw for us to come back, but we enjoyed the stay and historic visit and would recommend it as a one-time stop-over for others.
