Strategically placed along the northern rim of Lake Okeechobee, Florida’s “inland sea,” the city of Okeechobee offers visitors an old-fashioned – and truly relaxing – Florida vacation. Derived from two Seminole Indian words meaning “big water,” Okeechobee covers 730 square miles and houses the second largest freshwater lake in the continental United States after Lake Michigan.
Choose from hotels, motels, cabins, RV parks or campgrounds, and they are all just minutes from the beauty of Lake Okeechobee, attractions, and events happening throughout Okeechobee County. The town provides a convenient access point to the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail which was opened by the U.S. Forest Service in 1993 and the lake along with its waterways are monitored and managed by the South Florida Water Management District in order to better predict its significant meteorological effects and protect it as a national resource. The lake and its shores, of course, offer boating, freshwater fishing, hiking and biking.
