“Top Shelf COE Campground”

Reviewed Jan 29, 2018

Overall Rating

Oronta Lock Campground, (aka Oronta South) is a shining example of your COE campgrounds. The sites are very clean and well designed, although small with only 51 sites. The campground sits on the Okeechobee Waterway and overlooks the Oronta Locks. This is a very quiet campground with everything including water and electric at each site, along with fire ring, picnic table and grill. There is also a dump site and believe it or not, a one washer, one dryer laundry at $1.75 per load. This is very popular among SnowBirds and books up solid almost every night. We are limited to 14 days, but hope to return very soon. (The sites are $30 per night, but we paid $15 with our Senior Lifetime Pass.)

“Camping with alligators, birds and otters!”

Reviewed May 05, 2015

Overall Rating

This is one of 3 COE campgrounds on the Okeechobee Waterway. It is not really not near anything but wow does it still have a lot to offer for campers who like birds and other water animals. During my brief stay, I watched otters feed and then play in the adjacent water. Also lots of different migrating birds. Some of the sites sit right on the water's edge. Site #2 although not on the water, provided much entertainment from bird and otter watching. Alligators can be seen in the bigger canal area. Its very peaceful and quiet. This park gets busy during the winter months when it is 50% off with a Federal Senior pass.
