We took the ferry across the Ohio River just for fun. It's a free ferry ride. The ferry runs both directions across the river.

The ferry crossing in Cave-in-Rock has 1 boat and is a pretty small operation, but it's in an extremely rural location so probably isn't used very much. On the Illinois side there is access to the Cave-In-Rock State Park and the Shawnee National Forest. There isn't much else within an hour of the crossing on the IL side. On the Kentucky side there's pretty much nothing for miles in any direction. The wait wasn't very long and the ride was smooth. You can sit in your car or get out.

The ferry can hold up to about 12 vehicles at a time and travels across the Ohio River between Cave In Rock, Illinois and Kentucky. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes for a round trip. The ferry runs from 6:00 AM to 9:50 PM daily (7 days per week).

We were happy to find out the ferry was free to ride. A great experience to add to the books but wasn't really anything too exciting.

We used the ferry to cross the Ohio River, after visiting Cave-In-Rock State Park. Can't say anything bad about it.
