Ark Encounter is the largest timber frame structure in the world, built from standing dead timber, in part by skilled Amish craftsmen. The Ark is an architectural and engineering wonder containing three decks of world-class exhibits.

The Ark is a definite "must see" for the Christian community, and is also interesting, I've been told, for those who do not consider themselves part of the Christian religion.

It’s a little bit of a drive, but a lot of people make the trip with no regrets. In addition to exploring the ark, there’s a small zoo with interesting animals not available at the Cincinnati Zoo.

Amazing replica of the ark with so much information to take in, along with a beautiful outdoor animal area and playground. Zipline courses are also available for purchase. To save some money as a family/group, visit the outdoor pizza restaurant and order pizza and breadsticks to share.

“This is one of our FAVORITE places to eat in the area! Delicious breakfast, lunch, and THE BEST donuts in town! P.S. After 3pm the donuts are half off- BUT early morning has the best selection! ”

“My favorite place around for pizza! Trust me, they are at the top of their game on this one. Of course the best way to visit is by boat, but you can drive around to the marina. Great spot to drop in for a drink or fantastic food! Be sure to call ahead for hours of operation. They are a seasonal place on the lake. ”
