The ride is gorgeous across the Susquehanna River! It is wheelchair and stroller accessible. There is a sitting area to take in the view. It is the only wooden paddlewheel in operation.

My wife and I took our HD Streetglide out for a ride and ended up going up 11 & 15 to Ferry Boat Campsites. We then took the ferry across the Susquehanna River. Awesome smooth crossing. Saw some herons. Nice friendly staff.

I've loved this since I was a kid. It's like a step back in time. If you do, don't just sit and watch from the pilot house, go in the back because it's like stepping back in time. They have old photographs and books. Even...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.
