Nice to find a park with outdoor activities such as biking and canoeing. Highly Recommended to escape!
We recent took guests to Kayak here, and had a great time! Beautiful passageways through mangroves, an island to paddle out to, lots to see, and a good workout! Two pieces of advice -- take a good look at the map before starting, and try to keep it in some type of dry bag, as it basically dissolves as you... More
very pretty paddle board tour. You can paddle out in the intracoastal waterway to a sandbar or paddle through some mangroves. Nice part is when you are done, there are various restaurants in a strip centers just across the street from the state park.

I visited Oleta River State Park with a friend to try paddle boarding. The price was reasonable ($36 for 90 mins). The water and mangroves are something to see if you're not from Florida and we saw some interesting creatures (tons of schools of fish, a giant stingray, banana spiders). I fell off my paddleboard several times, but it was... More
The Oleta River state park will surprise you. It has many interesting/extreme activites. I will start with my favorite one, off-road mountain bike trails -- I was amazed, they have great trails for all levels, from novice to expert. There you can rent descent mountain bikes and all the gear you need. it is really cheap - the mapping is... More
