Exploring Lake Okeechobee
As the second largest lake entirely within the United States, Lake Okeechobee is a very unique recreation destination.
You won’t find anyone paddling on the lake – it’s thick with alligators – but nationally-renowned Fisheating Creek is nearby.
What you will find are lots of folks fishing, but also bicycling around the lake, hiking, and birding.
In addition to a major segment of the Florida Trail – a segment known as the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail to cyclists – circling the lake, there are quite a few other hiking trails nearby.
Adventures on the water can be arranged in Okechobee and Clewiston with fishing guides and airboat operators who know the lake and its many coves well.
