if you want to fish from mt zion its really close to the ohio river an dam 50 which has lots of good fishing an then there is the trade water that is small but good fishing to from what ive herdI was born and raised in Crittenden County and went to school there. The schools are alright lots of good teachers there. The job market is pretty much non-existent in marion. A couple of small manufacturing plants. The hunting is great, but if you want to fish you have to drive a bit. Marion does have a decent city park with baseball fields and soccer fields, basketball courts,skate park and a great walking trail.
Lots of small towns with pops of less than 100 ppl in the county and there is always the amish community for homemade stuff. I would say on a scale of 1-10 i would give it a 6
