S.S. Badger Running Cleaner Across Lake Michigan


The S.S. Badger has a long history of Great Lakes travel. Lake Michigan Carferry media director Terri Brown says the first cars hauled were railroad cars.

The S.S. Badger is part of a fleet that once numbered seven vessels crossing from Ludington, Michigan, to various Wisconsin ports – including Manitowoc. The S.S. Badger is expected to be designated a National Historic Landmark soon, by the National Parks Service.

New this year is a more environmentally-friendly adaptation to the coal-fired engines.

When the second phase is finished at the end of this season, none of the ash produced will be discharged into the lake.

A trip across Lake Michigan from Manitowoc to Ludington takes four hours.
