This place was recommended to us by a local woman named Chris we met while biking on 30A. So for a break from the beach and biking we headed over for a visit with some friends who were also visiting the area. What a great recommendation it was! The entrance fee is an honor system of $4 per car. Once... More

Enjoyed a beautiful day walking the grounds filled with camellias azaleas and live oaks. Bayou was interesting. Home built in 1897 and has unique history. Tour price was very reasonable

We stopped in after getting advice from locals in Destin. The park is about 30kms (19mi) from Destin but is well worth the visit if you like history, flowers and a nice relaxing walk. Take the tour of the Wesley house and see beautiful furniture and a very interesting story about the house and gardens. This place really is full... More

We enjoyed this beautiful state park with camellias blooming. Touring the home on this property was a special treat.

The weather was glorious! We packed a lunch and headed to Eden State Park from our condo in Navarre Beach. It was a bit of a drive but so worth it. The grounds are gorgeous. Be sure to go Thursday through Monday when the Wesley House is open for tours. The women who give the tour obviously love this house... More

Beautiful gardens with old and very large oak trees. House like a southern plantation. Short trails for a quick walk. Take the tour for a small fee; not a lot of interesting furnitures but good stories. This is absolutely worth a visit. If you need a place for a wedding this is also offered.

We stopped in looking to tour the Wesley house. Unfortunately they are closed on Wednesdays. The trees and grounds were worth stopping and enjoying. It would have been better if we could have toured the house.

Enjoyed the peace and quiet of the yard and gardens after a week at the beach. Nice change of pace for an afternoon. The house is lovely. Only $4 fee per car to get in. Tour the small garden at your own pace. Nice big lake with benches to sit and enjoy the view.

Nice spot to spend a few hours walking the grounds and touring the house. Enjoyed learning the history of the house and grounds. Nice walk to the river and enjoyed sitting on the dock.

This site is small, as state parks go. But if you do the house tour it is well worth your time. The docent was very knowledgeable and personable. The house furnishings and their story is amazing. Be sure to stroll the grounds and enjoy the humongous trees around the house. If you're lucky and patient you can also observe the... More
