“Nothing to write home about!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This ferry is basically a barge pushed by a tug boat. Not your typical ferry. However, it does get the job done by crossing the river. Save some time on traffic avoidance if you are going to that part of KY or OH.
Ok for kids for the excitement of the boat ride on the water.

“a trip across the river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I love taking the ferry across the river, it is a nice way to bypass some of the traffic and a nice enjoyable ride on the water. The people are really great and you can get out of your car and watch the waves. The kids love the adventure of being on a "boat" and getting out of the car. The prices is only $5 for a carload and even cheaper if you are on bike or on foot.

“Great way to get across the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

A walk back in time with a nostalgic ride across the Ohio. Beautiful scenery makes this trip a must visit for anyone especially those with a family or small children. A ride they will never forget!

“Nostalgic and Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We do the ferry several times a year. We love watching the ferry and we get so excited when we see the oncoming ferry.

I love to get out and stand on the ferry deck while we cross! It just brings back fun times when things were simple.
