The Grafton Ferry is closed for the season. It will reopen in the Spring. Stay tuned for opening announcement!
The ferry carries passengers from St. Charles, Mo., to Grafton. The Illinois side of the landing is located near the Grafton Lighthouse and public boat ramp off Market Street. The landing on the Missouri side is at Grafton Ferry Road, which is just off of Highway 94.
The ferry will decrease travel time between St. Charles County to Grafton by approximately 30 minutes. The ferry will be able to accommodate buses and vans and people will be allowed to get out of their vehicles during the trek across the river.
