Oleta River State Park
Welcome to Oleta River State Park
Florida's largest urban park, Oleta River State Park is located on Biscayne Bay in the busy Miami metropolitan area. Although it offers a variety of recreational opportunities, the park is best known for miles of off-road bicycling trails, ranging from novice trails to challenging trails for experienced bicyclists. Along the Oleta River, at the north end of the park, a large stand of beautiful mangrove forest preserves native South Florida plants and wildlife. Canoeists and kayakers can paddle the river to explore this amazing natural area. Swimming from a 1,200-foot sandy beach and saltwater fishing are also popular activities. Picnic tables and grills are available. One large picnic pavilion and eight medium pavilions can be rented for a fee. The large picnic pavilion, White Ibis, has electricity. Visitors can rent kayaks, canoes, and bicycles from the park concessionaire, Blue Moon Outdoor Center. For overnight visits, the park has rustic, air-conditioned cabins and a youth campground for organized groups. Cabins can be reserved through ReserveAmerica or on a walk-in basis.
