It operates from mid-May to late October and makes 2 round-trip crossings during the summer travel season. It is one of two car ferry services operating on Lake Michigan.
The continued operation of the S .S. Badger is threatened due to its coal-fired engine, which results in the dumping of 500 tons of ash into Lake Michigan each year.
