Great fun riding an old ferry across the Ohio river. Our granddaughter had a blast! Just a five dollar bill for the car a three people. Headed from northern Ohio to Tennessee going by ferry added about 40 minutes to the trip. Great fun.

Sometimes you will have to wait based on traffic. But it is quicker to get from the airport to downtown Cincinnati that driving directly.

A leisurely way to cross between Kentucky and western Cincinnati, especially if you are going to or from the airport. I find this brief ride across the river very relaxing, a wonderful change of pace from more hectic parts of the day. The water, the...More

Hi, the ferry is reached easily by taking Rt 50 west all along the Ohio River about 10 miles from Cincinnati. Anderson Ferry Rd is sort of perpendicular to Rt 50, & just a locator for this. You can almost see the ferry... More

It is at least half a mile wide. Has a good current. The ferry has been operating for about a century and half and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

We have never waited more than 15 minutes for any trip across either way even at morning rush or quitting time. They have 2 ferries so it looks backed up they add the 2nd one.
