Whitehall is at the junction between the Champlain Canal and Lake Champlain and is the last stop before the canal ends and the lake begins.
Lock C12 is located right in the heart of old Whitehall. This unique lock is in the center of the historic part of town. The lock lowers boats 15.3 feet from the Champlain Canal into Lake Champlain and raises them going the other direction.
Jim and I were able to watch two boats using the lock between the downpours. It was fascinating to watch the lock close, fill with water, and then open at the other end so the boats could continue up the canal.
