The Lake Okeechobee is the biggest fresh water lake in Florida and a popular destination for camping, fishing, boating and other outdoor activities. The lake is also a part of the Okeechobee Waterway, a 152-mile passageway for boating. The Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail is a 110-mile trail for hiking and cycling around the lake.
The lake offers many opportunities for great fishing, and some of the catches include the Okeechobee catfish and blue gills. There are also cruises on the lake, and visitors can join a tour on the local sugar cane farms that the area is famous for. If you want to camp by the lake, the Taylor Creek RV Resort Okeechobee Florida is located near the boat locks and has a private marina. The park is open around the year and it also offers cabins for monthly rental.
