Lake Okeechobee is known for its great speckled perch and bass fishing. You can rent a boat or bring your own to explore the lake and view the area’s diverse wildlife.
If boating and fishing aren’t your thing, you’ll be happy to find miles of cycling and walking trails near the lake to take in marvelous scenery.
The town of Okeechobee
Okeechobee is a quaint little town about six miles from the resort. Surprisingly, the town has many restaurants, shops, and all the services you’d expect in a small southern town, even though it’s quite small. However, it’s still big enough to have a Walmart Supercenter where you can pick up your groceries and anything else you need.

Silver Palms RV Resort is highly rated on RV LIFE Campgrounds, with an excellent 8.8/10 average rating. According to one reviewer,
“Even though this is in Okeechobee, away from the coast, it is hands down the nicest park in South Florida. The sites in Naples or Miami are a fraction of the size. Amazing place. Highly recommend. We camped at Silver Palms RV Resort in a Motorhome.”via RV LIFE Campgrounds user Timothy Carlin
