Our innkeeper sent us this way down to Silver Falls State Park; very scenic alternative to driving through the city. Saved some time on the drive as well as enjoying the hop farms in the spring. $2 to cross for a car; there was a large John Deere tractor going the other way that took up the whole ferry to... More

This was truly a "stumble upon". Trusting my car's navigation to get me through wine country north of Eugene, OR, I found myself at this charming ferry dock. But it was closed. Looking forward to returning there AFTER checking the schedule!

Heck, How often do you get to ride a ferry these days? Its only $2 for a car and the wait is minimal.

I live in Keizer and whenever I'm going to McMinnville, Lafayette, etc. I take the ferry. I'm normally on my Triumph Motorcycle so it is just $1 for the trip but in the car it is $2. You can go the Marion County Website and search for Wheatland and you'll see the ferry hours and status. You can even signup... More

My boyfriend and I have been traveling across the ferry for years to spend time on the gravel bar side of the river. Recently we decided to make a trip out there and had the unfortunate experience of having our car break down on the ferry. Both of the employees were unbelievably rude to us and made an already stressful... More

It only cost 2 dollars to use the fairy ,free if you just want to walk on and ride across, this is very close to Mission State park so be sure to include this in you Mission Park activities.

We were in the countryside leaving McMinnville and heading to Woodburn outlets when suddenly the GPS said "take the ferry". After first seconds of panic we saw it was a light ferry enabling you to cross the river for a very moderate fee of 2 Bucks. It was very fun to cross the river with the car. Do not hesitate... More

Such a nice little ferry ride for only $2 a car or walk on is free. Also made in convenient for us to cut from Lincoln City to the I-5 without having to go though Salem. Only fits 9 or 10 vehicles but is fast and runs on demand so doesn't take long to get across.

Yes, this is just a ferry for cars, bicyclists and walkers, however, it is so fun for kids. If you are looking for a little adventure, I would recommend taking the ferry. Good views and only a few dollars, it is well worth the time and small kids get so excited it makes it a little magical for everyone.
