My Brother once had a "Waterfront property" AS A river ran at the rear property line... Till it rained.. Then it was a water front, rear, side, other side, only the built up graveled drive was above water.


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

We were lucky and found about three acres on a river in 2017. It was set up with electrical for a 30 amp camper of the former owner. That spring 2018 we had the biggest flood since 1994 and every inch of the property was under water. That summer I built wooden steps down the river bank to the lower beach, secured to a big tree with a cable. Every year it floods high enough to move the steps up onto the higher bank and I move them back in the spring. It is a bit of work but usually only once a year and the place is worth the trouble.

I have an acre on a large creek (small river) in WV with water, septic system, and available electric I would like to sell. 12mi from Ohio river. I had a small house there but it is being removed because I let it get in bad shape because I didn't use it for years.

Yes it is stocked with rainbow trout and also has natural Rocky Mountain White Fish and Brown Trout.
That river through the summer is usually about 10-12 inches deep. On Thursday it was about 4 feet deep and overflowed it's bank.

All but the north entrance and north area are opening 6/22.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Keep close eye on wx forecast when camping by a river or creek. Think Yellowstone.
100 year floods are now common. Need to change their outdated risk assessment maps. Have fun
