Great park if you want to walk, bike, riding kayak or even just enjoy beach without waves. Only $2 entrance fee per person, few dollars per car. They have few natural and handmade bike routes for different skill levels, and long kayak routes - we rented kayak for 2 hours and didn't see half of it. Beware of mosquitos, prepare... More

I've gone kayaking, fishing and swimming here and love it! The sand is free of garbage & glass (which is huge for me bc i have a niece & nephew) & the trails to go kayaking offer a nice change of view. Must Try!

I have no words to express how cool is this park. You can rent a kayak, swim at the bay, ride a bicycle (great mountain bike trails), go fishing, suntan, make a barbecue, explore the mangrove canals and trail, you name. A MUST.

I went with my husband, my 11 years old daughter and one of her friends. We rented a kayak and we made a whole round of the bay paddling during a very nice Sunday afternoon. We even saw dolphins jumping around in the water next to our kayak!! We jump on the water and swam to the beach also. Very... More

We only visited Oleta River State Park Briefly. We have driven by the entrance and perimeter on 163rd ST plenty of times and seen the massive mangrove forests. Oleta River State Park has one of the largest remaining mangrove forests in the Miami area. We were angered to find that this publicly funded park has an entrance fee. We were... More

My favorite activity there is riding bike thru the trails... More

Tried the smoked fish sandwich and fries, excellent taste and fresh. Not a fine dinning place but great for a quick lunch.

My husband and I rented some kayaks and it was great! There are quite a few different areas you can kayak through. Make sure to go through each one to find the ocean! Worth it in the end.
