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

We used the ferry travelling on the North and South Dinosaur Trail. It was nice to see a different kind of ferry. Operator explained to us how it works.

What a fun activity to do with your kids! And it's free! It took me back to my childhood and going on a ferry. Thanks for keeping it and for letting it be free to use! The man who operated it was very nice, too.

A great stop and way more fun than a bridge. Ferry operator was friendly and knowledgeable. We came this route on our way to Royal Tyrell and got a great trip through the hoodoos. A must see if in the area.

This old ferry is surrounded by the amazing Badlands scenery. The ferry operator is very friendly and accommodating. We crossed as part of a large group of cyclists and he was great!!

Since I live in the area, I cross over on the ferry from time to time. Since it's free it would seem uncharitable to give less than four stars, but it's not exactly in the same league as a ride on the ferries in the BC Kootaneys (those are fantastic). Regardless, it is a cool piece of Alberta history and... More

The ferry crossing is worth the visit. The trip across is short but enjoyable. The vessel is well maintained by the government of Alberta.

We drove the Dinosaur Trail loop after dinner in a beautiful Alberta light filled night. The whole drive was spectacular, and the short ferry ride across the Red Deer River, was free and fun.
