From inns to resorts to wilderness campgrounds, Glades County has many relaxed and friendly lodging options available to its visitors.
The historic Rice Motel, located just south of the city marina in Moore Haven, offers twelve rooms and serves a clientele largely of duck hunters and fishermen who return year after year to the motel, which is just south of the City’s marina. To the north of the county, the Lakeport Lodge on Lake Okeechobee’s rim canal has 24 rooms and is proximate to the Duck Pub Restaurant. In the Glades County community of Buckhead Ridge, just south of the City of Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River is the Angler’s Waterfront Motel, which also offers access to Lake Okeechobee.
For the RV enthusiast, Glades County boasts a number of RV parks, several of which also offer accommodations for the non RVer. Just northwest of Moore Haven on Highway 27 is the M RV Resort, which boasts 214 full hookup sites and has a variety of amenities, such as stocked fish ponds and a 4-hole golf course, for its visitors and year-round residents.
