  • Love finding these treasurers as we walk the C & O Canal!!! This one has been well maintained. Worth the walk on the Towpath to come across these great finds!

  • The C&O canal runs from the Potomac River near Georgetown along the river up to the Ohio River. The lower portion travels beside the Potomac thru Great Falls. Many, many locks to traverse if...

  • I stayed here for 1 night in April 2021 through the C&O Canal Trust rental service. The lockhouse is basic - no heat/AC, no electricity, no running water. We packed water with us so this was no problem. The lockhouse is nicely restored and comfortable, both inside and outside. It was well-sealed too - it was 28 degrees F when we woke up but it was pretty cozy inside! There is a picnic table and fire pit available behind the lockhouse. If you don't mind the more rustic conditions, I highly recommend staying here!
  • A great display of the Canal's History. Thanks to the Trust for preserving the Lockhouses
