Located in the heart of Ritchie County, 1 mile west of Harrisville, just 6 minutes from Rt. 50.

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.

Waterski/Jetski Rental. We don't have water skis because maximum motor limit is 10hp on lake. That is what makes this lake unique.

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.

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 family.

Preparing for the year

Hard to believe that we are gearing-up for our 5th. year in our 'new' boathouse already. Many expansions and improvements have occurred during this period. Such as a boat dock/launching area, party deck, more kayaks and canoes, doubling the capacity of bicycles, 7 day services and other items too numerous to list.

For 2017 we are hoping to enlarge the boat dock area, and do finishing touches on the party deck. We also may repaint the boathouse.
