About the Region

 

Everglades

Much of the land south of Lake Okeechobee is part of the Everglades ecosystem. This “river of grass” is a national environmental treasure and is home to a unique diversity of rare plants and animals. This amazing resource is a wonderful place for recreation and exploration.

Lake Okeechobee

The second largest freshwater lake wholly contained within the United States, second only to Lake Michigan, Lake Okeechobee covers 730 square miles and is approximately 37 miles long by 30 miles wide with an average depth of 9 feet. The lake derives its name from the Seminole words “oki” and “chubi” meaning “big water.”

Herbert Hoover Dike

The Herbert Hoover Dike was built in the 1930s as a result of the devastation and loss of over 2,500 lives in the hurricanes of 1926 and 1928. It completely surrounds Lake Okeechobee to protect the region from flooding and storm damage during severe hurricanes. Built and maintained by the US Army Corps of Engineers, the 35’ tall structure consists of gravel, rock, limestone, sand and shell.
