I love it! A river that turns into a beach. You get soaked in the river and then in the ocean. What else can you ask for? This place gets full, quickly. There’s camping and it’s FUN ? My kid loved it!! Make sure to get mosquito repellent, a must.

Great park for so many activities like biking, kayaking, picnics, etc. very clean and well kept. It does get very full on the weekends and if you don’t arrive early they may not let you in due to the park being at capacity. My only complaint is that they seem to need more staff at the rental office. Having just one person is not efficient and creates a huge line.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful paddle out here amongst the mangroves. It’s cool to paddle by the boats parked in the water. We ways bring our own boards but we’ve also tried the kayaks during a moonlight tour and that was fun! They have amazing bike trails a definite must try!

I’ve been coming to this park for years to kayak. I love the views, and the area. If you are not paying attention, the mangrove trees will knock you off your kayak, or your kayak can get stuck on the mangrove roots/branches. The staff used to be a lot nicer, but last time i went, they were very busy. It’s a very big park, with a lot of space to cover with the kayaks, bring a hat, sunglasses, and SPF because you will definitely get sunburned.

Oleta River State Park in North Miami Beach is an outdoor paradise that offers a wide variety of activities for visitors of all ages. Whether you're looking for a peaceful kayaking trip, an adrenaline-pumping mountain biking adventure, or a leisurely hike, this park has something for everyone. With over 1,000 acres of greenery set against Biscayne Bay, it's the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. 

Rent a kayak, canoe or stand-up paddle board and explore the calm waters of the river estuary while keeping an eye out for mangrove snapper, manatees, and other marine life. For mountain bikers, the park offers ten miles of bike trails from novice to expert. 

There are even a few courses designed for dirt bike-style riding with jumps for tricks. Hikers can enjoy the three miles of nature trails winding through mangroves, gumbo limbo trees, and colorful wildflowers. 

The park is also a prime area for spotting manatees and dolphins, and for birdwatching. For overnight guests, the park has 14 rustic, air-conditioned cabins, and a primitive youth campground. The park provides a great opportunity to explore the Florida's nature and wildlife, and it also offers an escape from the busy city while still being close to it. So, whether you're looking for a day trip or an overnight excursion, Oleta River State Park is the perfect destination to reconnect with nature and leave the city behind.
