Welcome to Okeechobee Battlefield Historic State Park
Okeechobee Battlefield is the site of one of Florida’s significant battles during the Second Seminole War.
The Battle of Okeechobee, fought on Christmas Day, 1837, involved more than 1,000 United States military and volunteer soldiers, fighting against several hundred Seminole and Miccosukee warriors along the northern edge of Lake Okeechobee.
The battle is considered a turning point in the war with full-scale attacks ceasing and the number of smaller skirmishes diminishing after the event.
