Rental Stuff at North Bend

Latest News Alert

Feathers rule the day at North Bend State Park this weekend. Nobody was ruffled about it either.

See Page below for more.

Bike Rental at River Run. If you're looking for a more relaxing outing on a nearby trail, rent a bike for an afternoon with your loved one. I did.

Waterski/Jetski Rental. We don't have waterskis. Maximum motor limit is 10hp on lake.

Water Vessels. Rent a Pontoon, Kayak, Canoe any day of the week. Also real ugly Jon Boats. (helps fish to migrate to attractive bait).

North Bend Outfitters has been in the process of upgrading and enhancing the rental equipment during the winter months. We are adding more kayaks, bicycles, jon boat and the feature of the year....  a pontoon boat. This is going to be an exciting year at the park.


Located in the heart of Ritchie County, 1 mile west of Harrisville, just minutes from Rt. 50. Alternative prescription for lowering your blood pressure. One must have at least one session on the lake before you contact a therapist.


North Bend Outfitters has been approved for the construction of a marine dock at the Cokeley Boat Ramp Area. This will prevent any congestion at the standard boat ramp. Construction is scheduled for June 2014.





Well we have had a very active spring so far, the pontoon boat is now available for use. We have added more bicycles at the River Run Campground. Memorial Day and Father's Day weekends were very busy, much more than expected. The park is now installing new solar powered lights at the boat ramp. A new trail has been born that extends the lake trail to the Cokeley Campground and overlooks the lake.


Bird Watchers Digest Weekend

Well I goofed up this weekend for the sake of the website. I forgot to bring my camera with me Saturday, so hopefully those in the Bird Watchers Digest will send me a few to post. We had a great time accommodating the group and I now have a new appreciation for quietly listening for long periods of time after this weekend. My wife has noticed something different but hasn't figured it out yet. Also one pontoon group witnessed an aggressive snapping turtle scuttle and we are not going to charge extra for that. I believe that 82 species of birds were detected. I did not realize that so many varieties of birds were around here.
