Reviews for Chambly Locks 1,2,3 Tieup
power available, 2017-08-23
Captain: , Ottawa (804)

power was recently installed on the concrete wall in the basin. they have also added lots of streetlights which keeps the teenagers away at night. excellent restaurants in easy walking distance. grocery store 5 minute walk. the town also has lots of activities and shows in the early evening. awesome place to stay.

Enjoyable experience, 2017-07-25
Captain: , Oxford, MD (810)

The lock staff are courteous and helpful. We spent a quiet evening before locking through the next morning. The town is historic and the walking path around the harbor is lovely. We had a great dinner in town at La Cochonne Rit.

Still a great stop, 2017-06-19
Captain: , Hobe Sound, Florida (480)

If ths lock did not have metal gratings before the ramp which no dog will enjoy walking on, it would be a five star spot due to its great location. Walk east to a great park at Fort Chambly, walk west to shops and restaurants, and walk back up the canal to even more. There have been photographic art installations along the waterfront in both directions both times we've been here. Really nice town.

Nice stop, many restaurants, 2016-06-22
Captain: , Grand Rivers, Ky (2206)

6-16-16 Tied to floating dock past blue line below lock #1. Walked to town for dinner, bank to exchange currency, and the fort.

Chambly lower lock Park dock, 2016-06-18
Captain: , Wickford, RI (1637)

The overnight dock is at the northern end of the blue line docks. Due to short staff at this time of year we were not allowed to use the upper lock docks.
Nice town to walk on and a visit to Fort Chambly is sure to please.

GREAT STOP EXCEPT...., 2015-07-25
Captain: , East Falmouth, MA (1643)

I would give it 5 stars but for the weed. Tied up at the southern end at the top of lock 3, started my generator, and fried the impeller due to weeds. Other than that, the town is nice with several restaurants, a large supermarket, and even a beer museum! Had breakfast at a restaurant a short walk past the east wall called Dame Tartine, and it was fantastic.

North of Lock #1, 2015-06-21
Captain: , Portsmouth, VA (430)

No services on Lock wall north of Lock #1. Viewing other marinas the choice appears to be the best as far as weather protection and length of tie up space. Good places to eat nearby; Parks Canada should consider adding electric power and water for the price they charge per overnight.

A Must Stop, 2013-10-19
Captain: , Port Huron (423)


This is one of our new favorite ports. There is so much history here and it is nicely displayed all over town. The main attraction is Fort Chambly. Several of the buildings used in support of the fort are still standing and some are now private residences, beautifully kept. Be sure to take a short bike ride or a long walk past the fort along the rapids and past some beautiful historic homes. There are walkways through the town with plaques explaining the significance of historic buildings and places. There also many nice shops and restaurants and even a beer museum/pub.

We docked below the locks because in the off season it is all or nothing going through the canal. Above lock 3 would be ideal. That and electric would give it a 5 star.

Upper wall is great, 2013-07-12
Captain: , Mystic (909)

Upper wall was a great place to spend the night

Clean, and right in town, 2013-07-07
Captain: , Freeport, ME (608)

We tied up above the locks. The Metro Plus grocery was a block away, several restaurants were within a couple of blocks. The was some sort of festival going on on the Saturday and Sunday of our stay, but the (loud) music ended at 10pm, and wasn't scheduled to resume before 11am.

On Sundays - maybe all days - locking doen't begin until 9am. And we had to wait another 45 minutes, because they started with up-locking, and we were headed down. Lock staff was courteous, and came over at 9 to explain what would happen, so we were prepared.

Very Nice stay, 2013-07-04
Captain: , Austin, Texas (1774)

We stayed on the lock wall above Locks 3,2,1. It is much quieter or more protected than below the lock where you are exposed to the lake. Plus you are right in the middle of this charming town. There is music in the evening, many nice restaurants, and a great beer pub. Very Nice stop.

Great provisioning stop, 2012-09-06
Captain: , Naples, FL (1096)

We were southbound and allowed to stop for the afternoon and overnight on the blue line below locks. Stopping above lock three is not permitted during the week, at least when we were there early Sept.

Be sure to get the combination to the restrooms before lock staff leave for the day. There is a sign that says there is no combination required but that only applies during the day.

Within walking distance is one of the best Metro grocery stores ever. The choice of products was amazing. Also in town is a friendly chocolaterie.

Great Italian restaurant close, 2012-06-28
Captain: , Kenlake Marina on Kentucky Lake (232)

Be sure to try Tre Colori for dinner. It is an Italian restaurant that has been in business for 45 years. Two to three blocks from lock.
Bank and large grocery store very close also.

Good location, 2012-06-18
Captain: , Cape Coral FL (4188)

Good location to town. However, the dock is made of steel grating that DOGS cannot walk on. If you have a dog you will have to carry him the length of the dock to the grassy area ahead.
No water or electric as is on all the Chambly canal lock docks.
