Photo Album - Lake St. Louis Scenes  >>> Back to Members' Corner

Lake St. Louis is an unique lake.  Our lake has 4 sets of locks,  rapids run in and out of the lake,  3 rivers flowing into the lake. The 3 rivers that run into our lake the mighty St. Lawrence, the Ottawa and the Chateauguay.  There are 2 sets of  Seaway locks.  The #1 St. Lambert lock and #2 Cote Ste. Catherine lock bring the ships into the lake and #3/4 at Beauharnois, the ships are lifted out of our lake to Lake St. Francis. The town of Ste. Anne de Bellevue at the west end of the lake has 1 lock to allow pleasure boats to enter Lake of two Mountains.  It is a busy place in the summer.  The forth set of locks is the Lachine locks.  It was recently reclaimed for small craft, after many years of neglect.  Now it is a summer fun outing, both for the paths along each side and the various water craft.  The canal and  locks  lead to the port in Montreal.  The rapids are famous in history.  The Ste. Anne Rapids made it necessary to build the Ste. Anne Lock and several more up the Ottawa River.  The Lachine canal had to be built because of the Lachine rapids, although many boats went through them.  Today there are boats going through them as thrill rides.  It has been stated that there are more boats per square foot on our lake than any other lake in Canada.  On the weekends, it would hard to contradict that statement.  These are some scenes of our lake.
