Thanks. I discovered it about 25 years ago but this was really the first systematic photo journey to it; the other times I had been passing through enroute to somewhere else and just paused for a bit. Great, and I mean great, for afternoon sun. One can also get some excellent photos of ships approaching or just leaving eastbound or downbound from a variety of locations including the Iroquois village beach --the golf course adjacent to the beach is just a few yards from the channel. Westward, one needs to drive a bit and then there are good views along the St Lawrence.

Only one motel in town and it is $70 Canadian for virtually no amenities -- what you would expect to pay $30-40 for in the U.S. -- but comfortable. Little in the way of restaurants. A small gift shop at the lock with cool drinks and ice cream and the schedule of arrivals.

If one does not mind border crossings I would spend the mornings on the U.S. side either at Eisenhower Locks or along the river and the afternoon at Iroquois Lock--there are bridges at Massena, NY near the Eisenhower Locks and further west at Prescott, Ontario. Be aware that there can be LONG periods with no ships.

The lock is a regulating lock due to a large dam nearby and the lift is usually less than half a foot and when I was there last week I don't think there was any difference between upper and lower pools. The ships move through much quicker than say at the SOO locks.

I think its a really great place for photos but does not seem to be heavily visited except by the locals who like to watch a ship and/or have a picnic on the well maintained grounds.
