“"A HIDDEN CAMPSITE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We've been visiting this park for some years now and decided to spend Spring Break '13 at the Oleta River State Park cabins which we had never done and what an amazing time we had! They have 12 cabins available one which is equipped for a handicaps and they usually have one that's just for walk-ins, we rented 6 out of the 12 (big group)! Cabins were pretty clean except for the spider webs and and dust that was under the beds, reason why I gave a 4/5 in cleanliness, which is ok because we had taken some Lysol wipes and a broom from the dollar store, i mean we were in the outdoors after all! Bathrooms were super clean and comfortable with enough privacy to take a hot shower. Camp rangers were there every day keeping the area clean, and we're very helpful in changing one of the light bulbs outside our cabin (check that they work when you arrive because its pitch black at night). There are many activities you can do, there mountain biking trails, kayaking, canoeing (rentals are available),playground for the little ones or you can just bar-b-q while you lay back and relax on the beach area. Location is another thing we love about this park, once you're in inside you're surrounded by nature giving you the feeling of being far from the city when you're really right smack in the middle of it! Mall, shopping centers, restaurants, supermarkets and every type of fast food place you can think of are right outside the park! Overall is the perfect place to spend some good old quality time with the family or friends, whether it's for a night or a week you'll love this place!

I realize that when staying in a cabin at a state park we were not in for luxury however I would expect reasonable comfort for paying $124.30 (for two nights.) The beds/slabs in the cabin had pseudo mattresses on them that were probably as hard as the wood floor. The bathrooms that are a very short distance from the cabins are in need of some serious updates and "tlc." For the money, I was not pleased.

Besides making s'mores and having some good laughs... We decided to make things a little more interesting by parking the car next to the cabin to hear music from the car radio!... Boy were we in for a rude awakening the park asst. manager who stays in the park after 5:30 called the cops on us for having the car parked next to our cabin.Crazy mind you the day before we had done the same thing and he came over to tell us to turn down the music not once did he say we can't park the car next to our cabin am not so stupid to do something when told not to. For the fact that we were treated like 5 year old constantly being told what to do.. Mind you quiet time is at 11:00 the guy came over at 9:42 to tell us we couldn't have the music on did I forget to mention are neighbors didn't even hear are car music... And they had a huge wedding after party celebration talk about discrimination for being Hispanic because it was us who they were constantly bothering I would definitely not recommend this park to anyone and I wish I could upload how my arms and back are at this very moment... mosquitoes bites and ge gen TAKE BUG REPELLENT... Besides getting the cops called on eaten alive by mosquitoes this was the worst experience of my LIFE!
