Ortona Lock

Ortona Lock Built by the US Army Corps of Engineers to maintain water levels between Lake Okeechobee and the Gulf of Mexico, the Ortona Lock is along the Caloosahatchee River at Ortona. It is an important stop along the Okeechobee Waterway.

There is an Army Corps of Engineers recreation area on the north side of the river adjacent to the lock in Ortona, and an Army Corps of Engineers campground with plenty of access for fishing – and to view vessels passing through the lock – from the south side of the river, off SR 80. This is a popular spot for fishing along the dam and spillway thanks to several piers, including a large wheelchair-accessible deck along the river.
