Visitor Information

Ferryville,  WI 54628

Ferryville is a little village perched on a narrow shelf between the river and bluffs. The hamlet began life as “Humble Bush,” but became Ferryville when ferry service across the river was established in the mid-19th century.

An observation deck offers a beautiful view across Lake Winneshiek, a widened area of the Mississippi River formed by the Lynxville dam. A boat landing offers opportunities for hunters, fishermen and boaters.

The town has several restaurants, several lodging options and some craft shops. There is an excellent boat launch in Ferryville, as well. A small shop in town is a great place to buy Wisconsin cheese and cheese curds.
