“Unique, fun way to cross the river.”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Took the kids on this when passing through. Free. We only had a short wait. The ice cream stand stayed busy and looked tasty. Enjoyed this unique experience. Great side trip if passing this way.

“Cool and nice at sunset.”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

We took our twelve year old son and 14 year old daughter and they thought it was pretty fun. Not a world changing event but something you can't do anywhere else. We came back and rode several times on foot at sunset.

“Free fun”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

This a free ferry that crosses the Wisconsin River at Merrimac. Historic and fun. There can be a long wait but We drove up right onto the boat, 7 minutes later we were across and on our way.

“Great experience for the kids”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This was a great experience for the 9 year old twins. There can be a wait especially during the summer. The concession stand at the bottom of the hill has several things to choose from including ice cream so my boys were fine with the wait.
