The Cliff J. Betts Recreation Area, on the north shore of Lake Okeechobee, has a 400-foot fishing pier with a covered pavilion at the end providing vantage for scoping birds on the lake and the shore. This pier is also a popular fishing spot with benches and convenient restroom facilities at the entrance of the pier. The video above shows the pier and the beauty that surrounds it.
