5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

This has been picked as one of Florida's top parks. They have log cabins to rent with BBQ pits. Common bathhouse. Bike trails and kayak rentals. Miles of trails.
Florida the way it used to be. All at the top of Biscayne Bay . Do not miss this park on your visit to Miami.

“Great place to Kayak and bike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I usually come here to do mountain bike. It has an amazing road for bikes! Like being in a real mountain!! (crazy to say this in Miami!) They made a great improvement to this park recently. And then you can cool off kayaking to the sea. Incredible natural park in the middle of the city!

“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.
