Remains a beautiful location, just don't expect more than a solid dock. Contract rate increased by 65% and no proportional improvement in site physical state or amenities. They lost swimming pool access. WIFI range short, will not reach your boat. Safe hurricane hole. Hotel next door houses addiction recovery program, so no bar. Nothing within biking or walking distance. Only one unisex bathroom now and washer/dryer no longer free to use. Remains a beautiful location, just don't expect more than a solid dock.
Renovations are continuing, which is the reason for only one, unisex restroom at the moment. We have provided supplementary exterior restrooms while we are in this process. The new restroom will be open as of November 2nd. It is a quiet, beautiful cove with lots of friendly people. The docks are clean and orderly in comparison to the grounds a year ago. The marina is not affiliated with the Inn in any capacity; and therefore, cannot dictate the use of their facility or control the customers they allow to stay on site. The docks are well built and a great place to put your boat, especially for anyone looking to escape to the heart of old Florida.

Ran our boat up to ride out hurricane Ian. Very good hurricane hole located between locks on the Okeechobee Waterway. Very well built docks with heavy pilings. No power or water but for a hurricane hole it is fantastic. It saved our boat without a doubt. Kailey is great and is very accommodating. Very pet friendly as well. Will be back for the next storm.

Great hurricane hole. Lots of strong pilings and a long finger pier for each slip. Fresh water canal with locks at each end protect you from any storm sirge. The dockmaster is friendly and helpful. But no electric or water available.

Shonna and Kailey were each friendly, professional and competent. The marina is working on improvements to their facilities, and I expect each,time I visit, it will be a better experience. Peaceful and very pleasant refuge from the urban clutter.

Kallie was a pleasant young woman who helped us at the last minute when we could not make it thru the Ortona lock in time . Easy in. easy out. Never saw less than 6 '. We are 40' and draw 4'. Basic facility, no water/electricity, OK to run generator. Beautiful rural surrounding, Gators in the basin. Best part $1.00/ft

It is a very sheltered and nice place. They lack power and water needs to be brought to the boat in canisters in most places. But it is great for the price. Solar on your boat is a plus or you have to run your generator to charge up the, batteries or run AC. Overall a good experience.

This is a simple, bare bones place. The water was a little skinny getting in (we draft 4.5). We ended up fueling and staying at the fuel dock overnight. There is no electricity at the docks and the facilities are dated and worn. But, the staff was great and I know they have high hopes for the future of the marina. Nice stop along the Okeechobee route.
