On a cool morning we arrived and walked around the pleasant park beside the ferry. The wide river is breath taking.

Nice little ride across the narrow CT river. Old tug boat ads the air of old to the ride. Just a few dollars takes your car.

Bring a picnic or grab a bite at the shack on the Rocky Hill side. Walk or ride the ferry and enjoy the cool breeze of the river. Let the kids explore nature.
