About Oleta River State Park
A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER
It’s spring at Oleta River State Park and the weather is beautiful. The flowers are in bloom and the birds are making their end of winter migration back up north. Black-necked stilts and American redstarts have been seen in the park recently, as well as the endangered Atala butterfly and Florida manatee.
Explore the park through mountain biking, hiking or trail running on the park’s fourteen miles of multi-use trails. The trails offer a fun and challenging experience for all skill levels.
Go kayaking, canoeing or stand-up paddleboarding on the beautiful Oleta River or Biscayne Bay. Spend the day at our beach or enjoy a picnic at one of our nine pavilions available for rent. Bicycles, kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddleboards, beach chairs and umbrellas may be rented from the Blue Moon Outdoor Center located in the park, or you can bring your own. The Blue Moon Outdoor Center also conducts a Full Moon Kayak Tour each month. Tour fees include: kayak, gear, beach bonfire party and S’mores.
Join a Park Naturalist at 1:00 p.m. on 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. 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.
If you enjoy fishing, we have a newly refurbished fishing pier and several miles of shoreline available for your enjoyment. Fishing gear and bait may be purchased at the Blue Moon Outdoor Center located within the park. For fishing regulations visit http://www.myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/regulations.
On behalf of the entire Oleta River State Park staff, I welcome you to come out and enjoy this little piece of paradise and serenity within the heart of North Miami.
