This is a beautiful spot on the river. We didn’t get to visit a whole lot with our hosts as they were busy doing their things, and we do not like to bother anyone. Our dogs enjoyed playing in their yard and there is a really nice park within walking distance.

Fantastic...Fantastic...FANTASTIC. Easy, level parking. Loved sitting by the river and watching the barges. The song birds were an added bonus. Super welcoming host. Thank you for a magical evening on the Ohio River. An A-plus stay.

Brenda and Karl were delightful hosts. The grounds were manicured and welcoming. The panorama of the Ohio River was literally a stone's throw away. Chilo Park was close by as was the dam and the birthplace of Ulysses S. Grant. The neighborhood was charming and secure. Truly a prime boondocker site.

All was just as the hosts told us. The electric cord was ready and waiting. The ice cream store had great hot dogs and ice cream. We explored Ripley and the Eagle Creek area. Highly recommend anyone in the area staying here.
