Everyone should take the ferry from KY to Ohio at least once in their lifetime....Even if you just go across and come back..The kids love it...the adults love it...

“Little Cost For Something New & Quick!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

We wanted to use the ferry to let the kids see how things are done when bridges couldn't be used. It is really quick, the employees are very nice and keep things moving as quick as possible. Cost to us, being a car was 5.00, so who wouldn't do something new for just 5.00. Great Website, with history if you need to look up the schedule. If you are crossing the river either KY To OH, or OH to KY I would take the ferry at least Once!

“Classic Ferry and short cut to the GCV airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

A piece of history and the only ferry still in operation for many miles. The Anderson Ferry takes you back to days when river crossing were normally by ferry.

“Nice ride to get across Ohio River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

7.00 for a round trip beats driving 20 plus miles. They knew what they were doing even if the weather gets bad.

“A Happy Accident”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

By sheer accident, we were directed to Anderson Ferry by our poorly porgrammed GPS which took us from I-75 during the worst winter storm of the season. As if the hill leading to the ferry wasn't enough of an 'adventure', we were a little intimidated by the icy river and tired-looking boat that greeted us however we cast worry aside to venture aboard. The ferry was run by three funny, friendly 'mountain men' who guided our van onto the deck and took our $5.00 fare. The short ride across the muddy river was a thrill for our kids who had never been on a ferry before. We found the trip to be smooth, convenient and prompt.
