While visiting Ritchie County, tune your radio station to 98.5 on the FM dial. It is Ritchie Co.'s only locally owned and operated station.This station is also a part of our hub. The station ironically is located in a station (old gas station). So we decided to pump music instead of gasoline. The group only plays old tunes of the past, whether it is Country, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Christian, Saddle Songs, Polka, Old Stories and a host of other genres. Give it a try for a change, after all that is why you're in Ritchie County. It is said that many locals get off their medications after listening for 30 days.
98.5 WVHV-LP FM Radio

One does not have to make another appointment with a therapist or psychiatrist until you experience the serenity of North Bend Lake first. It's not the normal "tourist trap" attraction. This place can really reset your outlook in life.
Water Vessels. North Bend Outfitters has for rental Pontoon, Single and Tandem Kayaks, Sit on Tops, Stand-up Board, Canoes and V-Bottom 10Hp Boats any day of the week.
Waterski/Jetski Rental. We don't have water skis because maximum motor limit is 10hp on lake. That is what makes this lake unique - no big wakes and quiet.

Preparing for the year
Slower start this year due to the cool weather. We have had high water on 4 occasions to date. No real problem other than the dock is tied off instead of direct mount in the winter months. Well it has broken loose twice and plays hide and seek with us. We should be in full swing at the beginning of May.
The Boathouse Deck has become very popular for booking parties, meetings,and weddings
