Boone's Landing strives to provide recreational experiences for families in order that they can relax and enjoy the beauty of the Ohio River Valley and the surrounding Boone County. We are located at 14036 Boat Dock Rd., Union, KY 41091.
Janis and Chris Soper are the operators of Big Bone Landing since 2009. Operating as Boone's Landing, we offer boat storage, launching, mooring, and rentals of pontoons and canoes. The facilities comprise of:
Big Bone creek is ~ 200+ feet wide with depths of 8 - 18 ft. Channel depths from Ohio R. to Boones Landing are ~15 ft. There are three creeks that make up the Big Bone watershed: Big Bone Cr., South Fork Cr., Mudlick Cr. The combined run for a canoe is about 8-10 miles. Most bass boats fish the entire watershed.
Currently, Paraiso flips between of summer home of Boone's Landing (Chris) at Big Bone Creek, KY and wintering over at Pier 99 in Warsaw, Ky. Both marinas are AGLCA (America's Great Loop Cruisers' Association ) friendly, just ask us for help. Officially, Paraiso is on the Great Loop Cruise with an extended side trip up the Ohio River. November 2015 Paraiso will start chasing the weather to the south.
Thursday at noon we were at Markland Dam and our trip was almost over. 15 day seemed to go fast. We were all talking about the marinas we stayed and it was soon obvious they were all a blurrr of memories compressed into one big event....
? Do you remember at Dog River Marina or was that Cuba landing where we saw...........
As we started the final leg to our new summer port of Big Bone creek we flirted with several ideas:
A) Turing around and going back,(there was a yacht going to Naples and needed a deck hand)
Wow we moved about 1000 miles (@ $4 a mile).The last 300 miles (down hill) has help us get back on budget. We crossed over from the Tennessee R. to the Cumberland R. by the small connecting canal.
We met up with Stan's life long friend, Steve from his first grade at Green Turtle Bay marina. Steve, his wife Susan, and grand son Mack greeted us at the dock. It was nice having new friends greet us We had great conversation and relaxing moment on the dock. Steve brought us socks. All kinds of socks. As soon as i got back on the boat i put two pairs on .
We traveled 120 miles on just a quarter tank. That was great!
Glenn keeps pointing out we are going down hill now.
We docked at Cuba Landing. Dock master Jessica said she would keep her eye out for us as she lived near by. Again we coming in late near dark. Seems to be our theme song. She offered to make dinner if we were too late which sounded tempting. However, Stan slaved over a hot pot of chili all day... We ate chili.
Turns out the next day, lots of beer and chili might have been a wrong call....
