Crowfoot Ferry May 20, 2018

The Crowfoot Ferry opened for the season on May 11, 2018. The opening was a little later than usual due to high water levels and they needed to get their hands on a D8 to get the ferry in the water. This is what the ferry operator told me.

The location is here if anyone wants to look it up: 50.798667, -112.646833

Twenty-six kilometres of gravel road. Personally I think a rural ferry should be a little out of the way and there should be some gravel road involved. Approaching from the other direction it is only five kilometres of gravel road. One of my favourite diversions on a late spring day.

Typical southern Alberta landscape. The ferry is practically on the horizon.

Not a busy ferry. The water is brown from the run off. 


  1. 26 miles of gravel road is not too bad as long as it's not washboard...
    I enjoyed the pictures!

    1. Actually the photos of the ferry itself could be better. It is too bright out.

  2. We have a ferry a few miles up the Ohio from us, but it only operates in the warm months. They keep threatening to close, though.
