Fairplain Yacht Club

Located between Parkersburg and Charleston, the Fairplain Yacht Club is a go to for the Ripley locals.

Don’t walk in expecting an actual yacht club though. The closest body of water that you could get a boat on is roughly 15 miles away. However, there is a boat or two inside this backwoods sports bar that sits on a dirt road.

If you’re anywhere between Charleston and Parkersburg and you’re looking for a great dive bar with a big smoker, you have to check this place out.

The smoked wings were some of the best I've ever eaten.

While you’re at it, grab a bottle of whiskey or shine next door at the Appalachian Distillery.
