Stargazing


 
 
Encompassing nearly 35,000 acres mostly in Hendry County, the slough extends northward to the Caloosahatchee River and southward about 50 miles into Big Cypress Swamp. There are 39 miles of trails open for wildlife viewing, hiking, non-motorized biking, and horseback riding. It is also designated as part of the Great Florida Birding Trail and host the annual Big “O” Birding Festival in March.
Starry, starry nights. You don’t need a telescope to stargaze around Lake O, just good weather. Walk out on the dike and you’ll see thousands of stars.
