  • Have you ever visited Miami and wanted to do something other then go to the beach, but still be outdoors? This is the perfect solution. For all of you active nature enthusiasts, I give you Oleta State...  more »
  • A park with wooden tables and benches under the trees which allows to have a picnic and share breakfast with the Chipmunks. It is possible to rent canoes and see the manatees in the river. Has a Cove with quiet water where the yachts stop in largo, which allows children to play safely and the adults washed in it-calm waters and clear.

  • Went for the New Years Day Tour. Insightful, interesting and a nice way to spend the morning. Just a little gem in Miami!  more »

  • Loved the park. It's quiet with plenty to do. They have trails, a beach, cabins, camping, and pavilions for events. The views are beautiful. The kayaking was also reasonably priced. I went on a Thursday afternoon and it was fine, however, if you're planning to go on a weekend you might spend 45 minutes to an hour just trying to get into the park. We rented one of their pavilions for my baby shower and more than half the guests had to wait a ridiculously long time to get into the park. Just something to keep in mind if you're planning an event on a weekend.
  • Friendly staff well equipped. The kid and I enjoyed the canoes. They also have kayak's, paddle boarding, bike trails. Would recommend this place to anyone.
  • Great place to check out! There's trails you can walk by with multiple lanes to view different sceneries. You can also bike the trail instead if you're into cycling. There's also kayak and canoe rentals for an appropriate price if you'd like a new experience. Paddles and life vests are included in the rental! (Sometimes, canoes aren't allowed for renting if there's a wind issue-)
  • Excellent mountainbike trails. Had so much fun! I didn't use the picnic and swimming facilities but they look also nice. Admission was 2$ for bicyclist.
  • had really bad experience yesterday, when our car was broken in by thief and stole our staff in the car and security guards said they didn’t nobody and had no idea. while they said they are petrol the area all the time. Wellcome to Miami First visitors. Valuables that worth more than $2000 were in the car. Nobody Saw anything... Really !!!
