Ferry has been out of service for a few years now. Just a pile of sand at the end of the road where the ferry used to dock. The River's Edge restaurant that was on the west side has also closed now.

We tried to use the ferry on August 5, 2011 and it was not running. Is it not running because of the high water? It was pulled up onto the ramp on the Fredricksburg side.

The spring was wet and had alot of water, which slowed the full time opening of the service.

It is now open Wed tru Sun 7am - 7pm. This is weather and water conditions permitting. The fee if $4 one-way $6 roundtrip. You can inquire by calling 573-294-1114.

Just wanted to let everyone know, the ferry is up and running. We just used it on 05-29-10 for a float trip. Very friendly and helpful for our trip.

After several years of unsuccessful attempts to sell the ferry, and the death of one of the principals, it dropped to weekend only service in 2009 and appears not to be returning to service in 2010. Their phone goes straight to voicemail, and nobody returns messages. So after 125 years of service, it may be finished.
