Lock C-5 is just north of Schuylerville on the Hudson River and 14.3 miles from Lock C-4. This lock is unusual as it is the site of two locks, the current Champlain Canal Lock 5 (Hudson River) and a junction lock that once connected the modern Champlain Canal and the former Champlain Canal which ran through the heart of Schuylerville. The junction lock no longer operates but is worth a look if you are interested in the canal’s history. Services Offered
Lock C-5 Canal Park. View the remains of an old lock and wander through the powerhouse which is truly a mini-museum with restored equipment, photographs, and memorabilia. A tour boat, offering canal rides, operates from the end of the northwest terminal wall. Potable water, Restrooms, Picnicking
