Lake Okeechobee

As the second largest lake entirely within the United States, Lake Okeechobee is a very unique recreation destination. You won’t find paddling on the lake, but nationally-renowned Fisheating Creek is nearby.

In addition to the Florida Trail – known as the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail to cyclists – circling the lake, there are quite a few other hiking trails nearby, which you’ll find near the communities of Okeechobee, Lakeport, Moore Haven, Clewiston, South Bay, and Pahokee. You can walk around the lake with a group as part of the annual Big O Hike held every Thanksgiving week.
