  • I arrived with my fatbike and cycled the different paths they had. Some were demanding and some simple. Very nice trip. They also have a lot of Nice activities like skateboard, canoe paddling, standing etc. Is recommended if you are alone, with his girlfriend or family.

  • This park in North Miami Beach can be accessed by traveling east on 163rd street and though in my opinion nothing amazingly spectacular does offer a welcome respite from the traffic and urban stress s...  more »

  • Really cool park, been there countless times. Its enormous, they have a lot of mountain biking trails and running trails. They have a little beach, the water smells like ass, but its a bay not the ocean. There's a lot of beautiful scenery, the kayaking is great. There are plenty of places to do a bbq, a lot of secluded spots so you can have some privacy.
  • The cashier associate Mily was very rude to me and all my friends that came in. They were actually going to purchase items of the store when she told them that they could not touch the items in the store. The assistant manager Shelly not any better at customer service instead of helping us while her employee was in a confrontation with another customer (random person) she decided she would have us wait until they were done arguing to help us. They both have the worst attitudes, can not believe they have horrible people upstairs at the shop.
  • This is a great park for when you want to get out of the water for some paddling but don't have the time or means to go far outside the city. The sandbars near the beaches always have a group of boats anchored down with some selling ice creams and drinks. There are also islands you can paddle to for a more secluded experience than the more crowded beaches within the park.
  • Oletta River State Park offers one of the most peaceful and beautiful beaches in all of Miami. This hidden gem costs $4 per car, but is worth much more. I can't believe it took me this long to discover this tiny oasis. It makes you forget that the hustle and bustle of the big city is just around the corner.
  • This review is for the cabins. The park is great but we stayed in the cabins. The cabins are less than desirable and the bathroom was not clean at all. I will not be staying in the cabins.
