“Great park full of activities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

My family loves Oleta River State Park! There is so much to do there. Its great for bike riders as it has several bike paths with different levels of difficulty, from paved paths to daunting dirt traks with jumps. There are bbq areas, canoe rentals, a fishing pier and nice calm beach. Don't forget to bring your helmet as you will not be allowed to ride if you are not wearing one.

“Excellent for tours during the week.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Me and my family love this park! Quiet, nice for a nap, read a book or simply contemplate nature.

But beware! On weekends, especially in summer, is terrible. Many people, much noise, too much dirt.

“Awesome little getaway...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

If you like biking, kayaking or just nature, this is the place. There is even a beach for your enjoyment. I would suggest the beach during the weekdays. On weekends, the locals from the area tend to flop here. There is a $2 charge per car, but if you partake in the activities you will be fine.

“Camping, Barbecuing and a great HANGOUT for locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

This State Park has something for everyone: Bicycle and hiking trails, canoe and kayak rentals, and a great beach. You can also rent cabins very inexpensively and it is a great family hangout.

“Good time with family and friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

I tried the kayaking and the biking in the park and barbecue for Easter. I always loved my time in this park. It is clean and safe. The best time to kayak with friends in Saturday morning around 11 am when all the boats come to the bar sand with blazing music and drinks. It is more a youthful and cool atmosphere.
There are small islands to kayak to as well which are quieter.
The biking is awesome. I had no idea it actually exists in South Florida. Take your bike, wear a helmet and try the different level trails . You feel in another city.
You have to pick the right time and days not to be overpopulated, but everytime I went I had a great time. The water is cold but refreshing. There is plenty of parking, you have to walk a little to the site, but it is worth it as you don t have to struggle for parking!
