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.

Lake Okeechobee is the 7th largest freshwater lake in the United States. It is divided between Glades, Okeechobee, Martin, Palm Beach, and Hendry counties, with all five counties meeting at one point near the center of the lake.

Lake Okeechobee is the most visible Florida feature from space. Prior to flood control efforts and development in the watershed, water flow unimpeded from the north through Okeechobee and south through the Everglades.
