About Oleta River State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
March 20th marked the first day of spring and the weather is fantastic. It is a wonderful time for getting outside and renting a kayak, canoe or standup paddleboard from the park’s concessionaire, the Blue Moon Outdoor Center. You might also enjoy a bike ride through one of the park’s 14 miles of off-road mountain bike trails or over 3 miles of paved trails. Mountain bikes, beach cruisers and children’s bikes are also available for rent.
The park is host to a number of upcoming events including obstacle course and trail running races, festivals, fundraising walks, mountain bike and standup paddleboard races. Visit our "Events" section at: http://www.floridastateparks.org/oletariver/events.cfm for more information.
Camp Live Oak is hosting a “Spring Adventure Summer Camp” in the park from March 24th to March 28th. For more information, visit their website at: www.CampLiveOakFL.com.
Join a Park Naturalist at 1:00 p.m. every Saturday or Sunday for a free, guided, one-hour walk through several of the park’s unique natural communities and learn about the park’s history, ecosystems, plants and animals. Ospreys, kestrels, red bellied woodpeckers and great blue herons are just a few of the birds that have been seen in the park recently. Comfortable walking shoes, drinking water, sunscreen and insect repellent are recommended. Tours begin at the east side of Parking Lot 8. For additional information, please call the Ranger Station at (305) 919-1846.
For those who enjoy fishing, mackerel, snapper and redfish are biting. There is a fishing pier and several miles of the Biscayne Bay shoreline available for your enjoyment. Fishing gear and bait can be purchased at the Blue Moon Outdoor Center located within the park. For fishing regulations visit http://www.myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/regulations.
