Come visit us and Ride The Pride of Cassville Car Ferry

The Pride of Cassville Car Ferry is OPEN. It will run 7 days a week thru Labor Day from 9am-9pm. Thank You

JUST FYI: The Cassville Car Ferry doing a fireworks cruise this Saturday, July 5th. We will leave the landing at 8:30pm & go just past Brinkman Island to watch Guttenberg’s fireworks. But we need at least 30 people or we won’t go. Don’t need to put it on the website becuz they have to rsvp by 4:30Thursday since the office is closed Friday. Just wanted to let you know . Really short notice, but thought it was worth a try. Click Here for Poster.

The Pride of Cassville Car Ferry connects two National Scenic Byways; the Great River Road and the Iowa Great River Road. The ferry served the early settlement as far back as 1833 and it continues today, making the same trip back and forth across the mighty Mississippi. It is the oldest operating ferry service in the state of Wisconsin.

Directions to the Car Ferry from Iowa: Take Hwy 52 to Millville. Turn unto C9Y. Watch for the electrical substation and directional signs. The gravel road leads to the Turkey River boat landing, where the ferry picks up passengers.

Directions to the Car Ferry from Cassville: Take State Hwy 133 south to Crawford St., turn west towards the river. Turn right at the Riverside Park boat landing; follow the road to the upper park to the ferry landing.

Take a ride on the Cassville Car Ferry and visualize a twenty-three year old Nelson Dewey, who was to become the first governor of Wisconsin, making his first trip across the Mississippi to reach the tiny village of Cassville. Today, it is still a fun way to cross.

The Cassville Car Ferry has lost a precious namesake, friend, and supporter with the passing of Charles H. Dietrich.  Charlie, as he was known to all of his friends, tirelessly worked to establish the Cassville Car Ferry to service the Cassville area.  Thank you Charlie.
