Oleta River State Park

Florida’s largest urban park, Oleta River, is positioned directly on Biscayne Bay offering an amazing natural setting. The park is best known for miles of off-road bicycling trails, ranging from novice to expert. A beautiful mangrove forest preserves native South Florida plants and wildlife and is the ideal setting for campers to canoe and kayak to explore this beautiful natural area. Swimming from a 1,200-foot sandy beach and saltwater fishing are also popular activities. Campers frequently see manatees and dolphins swimming off the coast!
Lagoon/Estuary Beach: Surrounding us as we play at this gorgeous park is a lovely, shallow lagoon estuary. The lagoon provides, not only a home for fish, crabs, manatees, dolphins, urchins, sea stars and more, it also allows our campers a place to explore, play, refresh, and paddle.
Pavilion: The park pavilions allow our campers a place to experiment, rest, learn, and retreat. Daily activities, labs and lunch will take place here. During our frequent summer storms, these shelters will be our base – providing us a retreat from the powers of nature.
Playground: Just across from the natural playground of the lagoon is a children’s playground, equipped with a shaded climbing structure, swings and slides…just what the campers need to get their energy out!
