We decided, on the spur of the moment, to take the Millersburg Ferry across the river. We are so glad we did! After hearing about it on a local news broadcast and living in the area since 2002, we finally took the ferry and could just imagine wagon trains and a team of horses using this to forge the river....

Take a ride on the historic paddlewheel ferry boat located in Millersburg, PA. I grew up here so this ferry boat has a special place in my heart. My neighbor is the ferry captain. You can walk onto the ferry and ride across the Susquehanna river or take your car on and get off in Liverpoool PA on route 15North.... More

My parents took me as a child multiple times and what a privilege to take my own kids on the Millersburg ferry. I also remember looking forward to eating ice cream while waiting for the ferry to dock on its arrival on our side of the river. Years later my wife and I took a fond memories trip across the...

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.
