Okeechobee station is a train station in Okeechobee, Florida, served by Amtrak. Although there is a depot onsite built in 1924 for the Seaboard Air Line Railway, Amtrak uses an adjacent shelter constructed in 2011. Built of red brick accented with cream-colored, rock-faced stonework, the shelter has a waiting room with large windows. The $1.5 million project was funded through Amtrak's Mobility First initiative under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
As of October 2015, the older station had been demolished.
