via Mammoth Cave National Park:
Green River ferry will close at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 3, 2015, to begin the process of switching the ferryboats. Ferry service will resume later in the day, if the river level allows.
Process of switching ferryboats
That day (December 3), the ferryboat that has been dry-docked for repair will be launched at the Green River crossing and tied at Echo River Spring confluence, just upstream from the ferry crossing. It will remain there until the Coast Guard inspects it and certifies it for service.
Once the repaired boat is cleared by the Coast Guard, the present ferryboat will be removed from the river and dry-docked. The repaired/certified ferryboat will be put in service.
This process may take several weeks. During that time, boaters, canoers and kayakers on Green River please be aware there will be two ferryboats in the river – one in service and one tied off just upstream.
For current ferry information, please call 270-758-2166.
