“Welcome to 1880”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

This is a not-to-be-missed travel experience. Drive you care on this barge and get pulled across a 40' river. What fun! Worth the detour.

“On of the remaining few”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

Not many ferries left on the Willamette River. For a great "Sunday Drive", the trip out to Independence and the ride across the river on the ferry is great fun!

“Lovely Valley Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2007

There is a lovely little ferry that works in the Willametter Valley south of Independence. It allows a beautiful bike ride from Independence to Corvallis. You pass by a winery with good wine and a nice dog and have almost car free roads for almost two hours. This trip is at risk because the ferry is old and the state doesn't want to replace it. I hope that anyone in Oregon or the surrounding states (49) comes to do this trip and campagne to keep this little ferry working.
