Visit Bonita Springs
Bonita is a beautiful, natural area just north of Naples which has become very popular. Delightful homes and cottages line the beach and new golf course communities dominate interior lands. Enjoy great fishing and boating on the backwaters or walk the miles of pristine beaches both here and on surrounding barrier islands.
Visitors can explore structures and gardens, take a self-guided walk through the grounds or register for a guided tour. Also enjoy hiking the nature trail, picnicking, canoeing and camping in this 200-acre park. Strolling through the Koreshan Unity Settlement Historic District offers an oppurtunity to learn about these idealistic pioneers. There are landscaped grounds and eleven restored buildings. Self-guided tour booklets are available at the settlement entrance.
A nature trail meanders along the Estero River through pines, palmettos, oaks and palms. Enjoy fishing, boating and canoeing. A boat ramp provides access to the river. Young children can enjoy the playground located in the picnic area. A 60-site, full-facility campground features secluded sites and seasonal campfire programs. Ranger-guided tours and interpretive programs are available upon request and seasonal demand. A schedule of programs and fees is posted at the ranger station and in the camping area.
