Millersburg Ferry and Riverfront Park

Nestled in the mountains of central Pennsylvania, just along the Susquehanna River, lies the last known wooden double stern-wheel paddle boats still in operation in the United States: the Millersburg Ferry Boats. With a fleet of two boats, The Roaring Bull V and The Falcon III, the Millersburg Ferry Boats are the only ferries still in service along the whole 464-mile-long Susquehanna River.

 

The land bordering the Susquehanna River between Moore Street and the Wiconisco Creek was set aside by Daniel Miller, founder of Millersburg, for public use. It is the home of the Historic Millersburg Ferry and a boat launch. The borough constructed a restroom/welcome center and a hiking trail and planted 21 new trees in 2012 using a variety of grant funds. Come and enjoy a stroll down the 2,000 foot trail under the majestic trees.
