Welcome to Okeechobee, Florida(2)fishing rod fishing in lake

Okeechobee is a small rural community located at the Northern tip of Lake Okeechobee.  Lake Okeechobee is our crown jewel and known as one of the best bass lakes in the world as well as the largest lake in Florida.  The Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (L.O.S.T) is a 109-mile multi-use path around Lake Okeechobee.  To truly appreciate one of nature's many gifts take time to walk, bike or horseback ride around our great lake on the L.O.S.T

“Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake.” –Wallace Stevens
