The Cave-In-Rock Ferry is closed due to high winds. A line of thunderstorms moving through the region is likely to keep the ferry closed for the remainder of the day.

The ferry is expected to resume service on Thursday morning. If operations are able to resume sooner we will attempt to provide timely notice.

The Cave-In-Rock Ferry connects KY 91 with ILLINOIS Route 1 across the Ohio River between Crittenden County, KY, and Hardin County, IL.

The ferry normally operates from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. central time, 7 days a week. The ferry carries about 500 vehicles across the Ohio River in an average day.

The Cave-In-Rock Ferry is at Ohio River navigation mile point 881.0.

The Cave-In-Rock Ferry is operated by an independent contractor with joint funding from KYTC and Idot through a ferry authority.
