Glades County Florida


G.E.T. L.O.S.T. - Go Explore The Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail! With bass fishing, birding, bicycling, and hiking trails along the western shore of Lake Okeechobee, Glades County is a gateway to the ancient Everglades, the liquid heart of south central Florida. Defined by its rivers and lakes, it's the home of Fisheating Creek, a delight for paddlers with a 52-mile canoe and kayak run through landscapes from Florida's past. Sharing the shorelines of the Caloosahatchee River, a favorite for sailboats en route from Fort Pierce to Fort Myers, and the Kissimmee River, where fishing guides can show you the sweet spots.

Known as “Speckled Perch Capital of the World” and “Bass Capital of the World,” Lake Okeechobee is renowned to anglers around the world for its ample fishing opportunities, hosting several professional fishing tournaments each year. You'll enjoy ample access to the lake from our recreation areas, parks, and fish camps, with opportunities for guided bass fishing, airboating, sightseeing, and birding.

But Lake Okeechobee is only one part of our outdoor recreation charm. Fisheating Creek is a top destination for paddlers seeking an "original Florida" experience, and the Florida Trail around Lake Okeechobee - part of the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail - is a major destination for backpackers looking for a good week-long trip in South Florida. Whether motorbikes, horses, golfing, or hunting are more your speed, we have plenty of outdoor activities for you to savor.

The marshes and open prairies along the western shore of Lake Okeechobee and our other waterways provide ample opportunities for birders to view a variety of native and migrating birds.
