“Excellent piece of wilderness in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Oleta state park is a real gem - tucked away in NMB and nestled up against the intra-coastal waterway in Sunny Isles. It has lots of walks, cycle tracks, camping facilities, canoe / kayaking and a great cafe Blue moon. There is a fishing pier, swimming and a range of rentals available. You wouldn't know it's there but it's well worth a visit for the wildlife and to get away from the bustle of Downtown Miami

“Nice park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Nice place to get out in nature and go kayaking, have a picnic, or go "mountain" (after all, this is flat South Florida) biking. Can get crazy busy on weekends and holidays

“Bike trails galore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Bring your helmet and your sense of adventure. Smooth trails, beginner trails and many miles of healthy fun. I saw some courses with 20 foot hills. In Miami Yes. If you are going to the beach you do have to carry your stuff a ways so plan ahead.

“nice place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

It's big park with many things to do. You can rent small boats or bring your bicycle. There are very professional bike trails.
You can also celebrate your birthday and have a barbecue

“Nice place to go but needs more cleaning!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We went to this place in a yatch and after docking in front of the place we went to the beach. Unfortunately most people throw garbage around and the place looks a little messy!
They need to be more concious about keeping this place clean!!!
