not much to tell - it is a short ferry crossing to get to the other side of the river to allow one to continue on the Dinosaur Trail.

We arrived early in the morning so were directed straight on and were the only car, it was a very short crossing but worth a visit for the experience and views. Good photo opportunity.

Our family (with 4 kids) loved loading onto the ferry and travelling across the Red Deer river by cable.

It's not often that those of us who live on the prairies get to take a ferry...so it's a delightful diversion! Well worth taking a little extra time to experience!

It's a cute little cabling pulling ferry that takes your vehicle across the red deer river. Some historical information available on signs. There is a weight restriction for large transport trucks, but I've seen camper trailers etc on it. Short, only a few minutes to cross.

Worth the 5-10 minute wait to cross the river here. Take photos and enjoy this short ride at this historic site - definitely worth it!

Road construction (and impatience) had us devoured to the ferry crossing - and we were glad it did. It's a quick one, but unexpected in the middle of the prairies.

It is a novelty in the area to go on the small ferry. It goes back and forth continuously, so very little wait time.
