In the middle of 2019, Turtle Creek Harbor in Indiana changed ownership. Long-time owners, Bob & Agnus Wheeler, are moving into retirement and sold the business to Ray & Villie McDaniel. The marina will continue to operate in a similar structure with a slight change to the hours and some standard renovations and dredging operations ahead of the 2020 season. We would like to thank Bob & Agnus for their great partnership with keeping Quimby’s Cruising Guide up-to-date in the past and wish the best of luck to Ray & Villie in the future continuing to serve transient and local boaters on this beautiful stretch of the Ohio River. The updated contact information is below.
Pegged as one of the most beautiful places on the Ohio River, Turtle Creek Harbor is located on mile marker 529 in Florence, Indiana. Just a few clicks away from Belterra Casino, it provides a unique stop to take your chances at the blackjack table or dust off your golf clubs under the deck for a few rounds. There are also a number of restaurants in and around town that provide ethnic fare and selections from the nearby winemaking region of Switzerland County.
