Immokalee, in inland Collier County, takes its name from the Seminole words for “my home.”

The area has a thriving agriculture industry, providing fresh produce to much of the eastern United States November-April. Farms in the area produce tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, watermelons and more.

Since undergoing a successful environmental restoration, Immokalee’s Lake Trafford is regaining its previous status as a top bass fishing destination. 

Community events in Immokalee include live concerts and other special events at the Seminole Casino Hotel, full-moon hikes with Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed Land & Water Trust, Immokalee Harvest Festival, and the Christmas Around the World Parade.

The Immokalee Bulletin began as the “Southwest Floridian News” in 1967. The newspaper was printed weekly until March 2020, when it switched to digital publication only. The digital version of the Immokalee Bulletin is updated daily.
