Beautiful

We love Ortona! Our site, 29, waterfront! So many boats going through the locks. Unfortunately, the locks are still closed to people walking across. Very clean, good long sites, and very friendly! 59 amp, and water hookups.

Catfish, Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, and Crappie are the most commonly caught fish at the large pier at the campground. Snook are commonly caught at the small north end pier which is accessible by walking across the dam from 7AM to 4PM. Several large bird species frequent the area if you are a Bird Watcher.

LaBelle is the nearest town and has stores, restaurants, etc. Laundry Facilities are not currently available on site. 

Natural Features

The campground's terrain is flat and lined with tropical greenery like the Sabal Palm, the state tree of Florida. The Caloosatchie River to your north and picturesque pastures to your south. The South Florida Water Management District is constructing a Water Quality Treatment and Testing Facility, adjacent to the South East end of the campground. Construction at that site may affect the serenity of your experience
