This wooden stern wheel ferry crosses the Susquehanna River between Millersburg (on the east shore) and Liverpool (on the west shore) during most of the spring and summer. If you have any need to travel between Harrisburg and Sunbury/Selinsgrove in central Pennsylvania and have a half hour or hour to spare, this is definitely the most relaxing way to spend... More

Crew polite,professional and courteous. This car ferry is a paddle wheel historical cruise to Millersburg PA. A nice way to break up a trip on 11/15 . Try it on your way to Knobles.

It is closed due to the water level being so low, I wish this would have been mentioned on their website, since we took a trip there to ride on the ferry and found out it was closed once we were there.

I had bored my hunny with stories of the ferry for years, and she humored me with feigned interest, but when she experienced it her jaw went slack. It is the most unique tourist activity you will find. When the ferry is across the river looking east from the campground side, you can call it by opening a door hinged... More

A great,peaceful,relaxing,ride. This was fun&also informative.Surprised water was only maybe 3 ft deep at the most.One fellow on ride said they walked across the river before.We arrived perfectly,within 10 minutes we were underway,we stayed on the boat and returned.The whole trip was maybe 45 minutes if that. Would be a nice experience for anyone. Captain was very cordial.

Wonderful addition to the community. Don't miss this with or without your car. Ice cream at the store on campground or at Williams French fry on the other side.

Fun, relaxing, the crew was great..you could tell they loved their job, and did it well. On the other side of the river is a campground where the... More

I live in the area and still take ferry rides every summer. It is a relaxing trip across the river. There is a campground to stay at with activities to do there also. Check it out!!!
