A few miles south of Lombard Ferry. The Robinson Ferry was built by the Mormons in 1847 and operated by them until 1856 when it became the operation of Isaac Bullock and Lewis Robinson. A few years later, Indians attacked the Robinson homestead, killing all but a young girl. The ferry was then abandoned. The Robinson Ferry site is also within the Seedskadee National Wildlife Refuge.
