“Neat experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

Great covered observation deck with benches so you can comfortably watch the ships come in and out even in the rain and wind.

“It's neat to see the big ships come through”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

I'd suggest spending time on the observation deck watching at least one ship go through. If you have time watch one go from both ways.

Great view, easy, safe, protected from the weather. We have been to several lock viewing areas in the midwest and this is the best so far
