Another Okeechobee question or two

Recommended Posts

I’m thinking about taking a scouting expedition to Okeechobee next week. I’m calling it a scouting expedition because I’m thinking about driving my car rather than my truck with my boat. I’ve never fished anywhere in Florida but a friend told me he caught a bunch the week after Christmas. I thought I would scout out some places to stay and maybe make some reservations for later in the spring once I see the places in person. I also thought about hiring a guide for a couple of days so I could possibly have a good experience on the lake while I’m there.


Are there any decent places to tent camp on the northern part of the lake? There’s a KOA in Okeechobee but they charge $40/night for a tent. That doesn’t seem like much of a bargain to me.


Also, are there any recommended places on the northern end to rent a Jon boat for a day or two? I’ve found J&S Fish Camp that has small Jon’s with a 9hp for $90/day. Anybody else?


Thanks in advance for any suggestions, and if anyone wants to suggest a guide that would be great as well.
