This ferry is part of a 50km loop you can drive around the Drumheller area. It is a very short ride - if they added another ferry it would be a bridge! It is a cable ferry and the operator showed me the drive mechanism when he saw I was interested in it.

Yup, you get across the river. Slow to the point of your not sure about moving. I am from BC and there 2 river ferries which cross river much larger and with more to see. Big bar ferry and the ferry at Lytton. Faster and not powered using just the power of the river.

The drive down to the ferry offers great scenery. We were pulling our holiday trailer as we were going to be staying at the Holiday Trails RV Resort (which is an awesome place by the way). However, our truck & trailer was just too long to get onto the ferry, so needless to say we (our kids especially) were bummed... More

Free and the only way to cross the river on the Dinosaur Trail! 12% grade down to the Ferry so make sure your breaks are good and shift down. A fun diversion in our modern world.

This is worth the short drive...even it only takes a few minuets to gross the red deer river...it is worth is as only a few ferris remain in operation!

This ferry ride traverses about 30 feet of open water. Mechanism was interesting and the ferryman was the frienliest since the River Styx.

OK it's just a Ferry!... But it's Alberta people...and it's cool . So short a ride but it's just neat...and beautiful scenery on both sides of your drive.

Enjoyed the short trip across the river. It was worth the short drive up one side and down the other. Doesn't take long and kids would probably get a kick out of it. Glad I made the diversion.

Crossing the river is part of the Dinosaur Trail around Drumheller and a fun way to cross - better than a bridge. You can get out and walk around and ask questions - the operator was very friendly and informative. If you have kids they'll probably get a kick out of this.

Friendly helpful staff, quick service & a nice view of the river. We were able to get out of our vehicle & walk around during our ferry ride. A pleasant trip on a beautiful sunny day.
