The Big Cypress Indian Reservation is located in southeastern Hendry County and northwestern Broward County in southern Florida in the United States. The reservation lies south of Lake Okeechobee and just north of Alligator Alley. The reservation is governed by the Seminole Tribe of Florida’s Tribal Council, and is the largest of the five Seminole reservations in the state. The land area is 212.306 km² (81.972 sq mi), and a resident population of 142 persons was reported in the 2000 census. The reservation lies adjacent to the north side of the largest section of the Miccosukee Indian Reservation in western Broward County.

The tribe owns two tourist attractions: Swamp Safari, and The Big Cypress Entertainment Complex. The reservation is also called “Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation” or “Big Cypress Reservation”.

The American rock band Phish held their millennium concert at the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation from December 30, 1999 to January 1, 2000. With 85,000 people in attendance, it was the earliest and largest sold out millennium concert. Phish performed 3 sets of music on the 30th, an afternoon set on the 31st, and an unprecedented “Midnight To Dawn” set which ran from 11:50pm until sunrise on January 1, 2000.
