Lake Okeechobee, whose name is derived from the Seminole Indian words meaning "big water," is the largest freshwater lake in the state of Florida. Covering 730 square miles, the lake is exceptionally shallow for it's size, with an average depth of only 9 feet. At full capacity, Lake Okeechobee holds 1 trillion gallons of water and is the headwaters of the Everglades.
