Clifty Falls and Inn are nice but if you head a little further west you reach Spring Mill State Park and Inn, MUCH better Inn. http://www.in.gov/dnr/par.../springmill/index.html
It is still an easy drive to Madison, and to Paoli and French Lick and West Baden too.
Carlton - Vevay hasnt had a ferry since the dam was built in the sixites, Rising Sun had a passenger ferry, but it has since stopped running and Aurora had a car ferry for many a year but with the bridge opening in 1978 the traffic moved to the bridge and the ferry went away.
There is still a ferry running at Anderson Ferry (US 50 between Lawrenceburg and Cincinnati)
Spring Mill also has the Grissom Museum, a tribute to my favorite astronaut. Virigl I Grissom.
OK off the topic Does anyone know how Virgil I Grissom got his nick name "Gus"?????
