Red River crossings

My family came to Vernon in the fall of 1916 on the way to Oklahoma. I expect they crossed the Red river in that vicinity. They were traveling by wagon with a cow or two in tow. How would they have crossed by that time. Was Doan's crossing still being used? Was there a ferry? My mother didn't remember anything about a railroad,so I don't think they crossed on a RR bridge.
Your help will be appreciated.
