This is the last remaining wooden paddle wheel ferry in the US. If you are anywhere near here, it is definitely worth making a detour to experience this ferry. Crossing only takes 20 minutes or so and is a once in a lifetime thing to do. Easy to find in Millersburg, with a charming park where you can wait for... More

The Millersburg Ferry is a great experience to have for kids. You can put your car on the Ferry and take a short cut over to Lake Tobias or other fun destinations from Liverpool. It's a fun piece of history. We've been riding the Ferry every year for at least 25 years!

What a great afternoon (or morning or evening) for a watery stroll across the 'Hanna' river, with warm summer air or a cool spring breeze....

Before there were bridges, there were ferries. Now, the Millersburg Ferry is one of few and the only wooden stern wheel paddle boat east of the Mississippi. It's rustic, relatively slow and really relaxing. One side of the river has a lovely park, the other a campground. Both sides have swings and lovely river views. Being the car or your... More

We went over the ferry to the camp side and sat at the camp and had a picnic lunch on the swings. Watched the ferry go back across and enjoy the people on the water. Taking the car over was so different. Had to do it just for the fact to say "we did it". Smooth ride and hard to... More

We rode the MIllersburg Ferry, the Falcon, today. This nearly 100 year old ferry runs daily across the Susquehanna river at Millersburg on the east side. Its a great rie and can actually save time getting across the river. This historic ferry is a must do for young and old.

I've lost count of the times I've crossed the Susquehanna on the Roaring Bull. More times than not it was with the chrome pony. This ferry is on the historical register and worth going out of the way, a fun ride for cyclists, kids, families.

We took this old paddleboat ferry across the Susquehanna. You have to know where it is to find it. It will take up to four cars, and runs when there's traffic. Our car was the only one, but there seven of us on the trip across. The other group was three kids and their grandparents. It's a 20 minute boat... More
