Buckhead Ridge

Buckhead Ridge, in northern Glades County near the  Okeechobee County line, is home to nearly 2,500 year round residents of all ages with an influx of another 1,500 winter visitors who stay the community.

Because of the community’s convenience to county boat ramps and  parks, Buckhead Ridge has always been a popular choice for bass  tournament participants, duck hunters and vacationers throughout the calendar year.

Buckhead Ridge is also home to the annual Winter Festival, which is celebrated the last Saturday in January each year.
