Additional info:


Leave Canal des Vosges and enter the Embranchement d'Epinal between locks #14 and 15 at approximately Pk 83.3 and proceed 3.3 km to Port de Plaisance. Take care as this 3.3km water level varies. Often as low as 1m and there is no place to turn around.

In 2015 a boater passed with a draft of 1.4m, and had a few low places, so don't push it.

We only just made it to Epinal with 1.4 m draft, but the town is lovely and there is a good train service to Epinal.

Capitainerie restaurant/bar/cafe is well placed and very good. Loved the ambiance of the port, easy walk to old town, fabulous market, easy walk to station. Free car parking. What's not to like.

Excellent stop, well run by Harbour Master, who lives on site on his peniche on east side of harbour. This gentleman was very helpful and provided maps of the city with cruiser pertinent information marked on it.
Pleasant, clean harbour with very nice park adjacent to quay.
Good shopping and numerous bars and restaurants in old part of city.
