It's rather odd that "Okeechobee" isn't accepted when I could type, Salton, Powell, Mead, etc. Seems incredibly inconsistent.

There are 48 continuous united states, but there are 49 continental united states. Also, why does it require Lake Okeechobee, but all other answers only require the name without 'lake'?

No kidding. Rarely do I come across a word that I cannot remember how to spell, but damn Okeechobee gets me every time. Okachobee...Ochachobee....meh. It is fun to say though. :D

I got the 3 most known Great Lakes and that's it. I think my American geography needs polishing up a bit...

Lake of the Woods is pretty tough. Lake Itasca (source of the Mississippi) is probably (?) a more famous Minnesota lake.

I guess "Ozark" wasn't close enough? I won't complain; it was just a wild guess....
