a lake in southeast Florida to the north of the Everglades
Lake Okeechobee, locally referred to as The Lake or The Big O, is the largest freshwater lake in the state of Florida.

However, it is the largest freshwater lake completely within a single one of the lower 48 states. Okeechobee covers 1,900 square kilometres, approximately half the size of the state of Rhode Island, and is exceptionally shallow for a lake of its size, with an average depth of only 3 metres. The lake is divided between Glades, Okeechobee, Martin, Palm Beach, and Hendry counties. All five counties meet at one point near the center of the lake.
