“Bike, Hike, Beach, or Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Oleta is a long time State park favorite of mine that my family and I have been going to for years. I go for the great mt. bike courses. They recently added another large section of more courses. The area now covers a major part of the park with many different courses and gives you the feeling of being out in the woods which I like.

Nice to find a park with outdoor activities such as biking and canoeing. Highly Recommended to escape!

“Feel like you are in the Keys!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

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 get wet while paddling. Also, ask about the wind and sea conditions out in the bay before starting. The ocean kayaks seemed up to the job for the waves we saw, but it can be a real challenge paddling against the waves, and you can expect to get VERY wet with water coming into the boat. There is a protected cove you can explore, as well as the mangrove trail, if it is too windy to get out to the island.

“Great place to paddleboard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

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.
