We have done the Ferry a few times and it is something different to do. We have fun exploring when we get to the other side and enjoy the time crossing the river. If you have never been on a ferry try it out.

We just drove over to it one day, and it's just a neat thing to do. The day we went over, the River was covered in fog, though. It looked cool from above, but may not have been on the Ferry.

I live in Leesburg, VA, and use this very infrequently. It's a hoot, though. I think it does get shut down if the river gets iced over. Does not happen a lot.

Nice back country roads to get away from the awful traffic of the beltway! Thank you for the great service.

I grew up in this area and had never taken this quick little ferry ride. I learned that some people use it daily as part of their work commute from the Virginia side to the Maryland side.

The ferry is inexpensive, boards quickly, crosses the river in a few minutes and then off one goes. I have only done this in good weather and warm months. It is nice to see the river and relax a bit.
