Gamble Plantation Historic State Park is a state park in Ellenton, Florida. It features an antebellum mansion that was once the home of Major Robert Gamble.

The Gamble Plantation Historic State Park traces its roots to 1842, right after the end of the Seminole War. Major Robert Gamble built a home in Ellenton which is now deemed as an ?outstanding example of antebellum construction? and a ?monument to pioneer ingenuity and craftsmanship?. The house was a part of a 3500 acre sugar plantation that mainly supplied the New Orleans market.

The Gamble Plantation Historic State Park now offers a wide array of recreational activities including tours of the historic house and picnicking. The site is open daily all year round, but guided tours of the mansion follow a schedule.
