This was my third visit to this state park since I relocated here to Miami in 2001. It's a decent state park but I've been to some which are much better because they offer many more activities for families to enjoy. I guess I just expected more since this state park is located in Miami. However, much hasn't change since... More

Oleta park has many wonderful mountain bike trials from novice to expert. You can also rent kayaks, bikes, and even has a small beach.

Wonderful sanctuary for kayakers and bikers. They rent both, plus stand up paddle boards. Plenty of bike trails. There's a nice fishing pier and a roped off swimming area. Plenty of picnic facilities and bathroom buildings. Nice stop to enjoy the day.

Great park to rent a kayak or boat and get some outdoor exercise. Sometimes it has an unpleasant smell in the area, and the water can be a little murky, so I would swim at the beach instead.

When my son suggested kayaking I was not at all sure I wanted to try but I am glad I did. We had 3 double kayaks which were easy to rent and as we had arrived fairly early we did not have to wait too long. The contrast between the mangrove channels and the open lake was great and there... More

My family and I stayed here for three days in January. The park is right in the city so I feel it would be a great place to get a break from the big city and get back to nature for a while. The cabins were in good shape and well taken care of. My only complaint is the shower... More

Had a lovely time kayaking with my friends! Even came across 3 manatees! Be careful of the jellyfish! Bring water, snacks, and sunscreen :) (But keep them in water proof bags!)

Went with my family and friends. We had a great time. The best part is that you can rent the bikes or the kayak. Bring your own food and be ready to spend the whole day.
