“Interesting spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

The lake is huge but shallow. There doesn't seem to be much to do there or nearby. We drove all the way around and you can only see the lake if you get out of your car and hike. Near the locks it is interesting to see and the trail was easy to walk on.

“Ah ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

We just drove from the east side of FL to lake okeechobee's east side it was pretty. Unfortunately there are no other pretty things to look at or things to do. It was a long drive to and from we almost ran out of gas 10 miles after the light came on we found a station, fhew... thank goodness.

“Fishing is all there is....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2005

We stayed at Roland & Mary Ann Martins Marina in Clewiston FL. There is nothing to do in this town, other than fish. It's a great place if you are looking for a fishing weekend, but that's about it. We were told by some locals that the Tiki Bar at Martins's Marina was the most happening place in town and I think they were right. The Tiki Bar at Martin's was the best part of the entire trip. They had a great band-ADD for the Memorial Day Weekend and the place was packed with tourist and locals. Was not that impressed with Martin's Marina as far as lodging. The pool for the "general guest" was dirty and no bathroom nearby. The pool for the Condo units looked much better, but was told we couldn't use that one since we were staying in one of the new park models. Don't think I'll be returning to Lake Okeechobee anytime soon.
