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.

Cruising Highlights:

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.
