Have you taken a trip on the Anderson Ferry? I can promise you if you haven’t it is a trip that you don’t want to miss. It is not a HUGE trip but quite memorable. My family decided to take the Ferry because we had never done it before and we all really enjoyed it. The anticipation of the ferry arrival is the most exciting part.
The Anderson Ferry has been in business since 1817 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is located in Hebron, KY, which is in Northeastern Boone County, at the mouth of Dry Creek, which divides Boone and Kenton Counties at the Ohio River. Because of its proximity to the Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky Airport, which is less than three miles away, and I-275, which is one mile from Constance, the Ferry provides time and cost savings between Western Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
Occasionally the Ferry must close when weather conditions are extremely bad. If the Ferry does stop running, that information will be available in the news feed on this website and on the telephone message at 859-586-5007. Also be sure to check online for hours of operation.
