  • Walking along the canal which has a very peaceful and calm surrounding. Also the south side is attached to the white fish island so you can do both at the same time. Managed to witness a sight seeing....  more »
  • Early morning wander was nice, it was quiet and there was lots of time alone on the edge of the locks. While quiet it was disappointing that the facilities weren't open and there's no clear...  more »
  • We came after the Center was closed, so we visited for free. I’m not sure how much more added value you’ll gain from visiting the museum and other included facilities. This review is based on the...  more »

  • It was a nice place to visit, but I feel like I spent too much of my time there. Going around the trail is only advised for bird lovers. It worth to check out the canal, it's really interesting to see how they open the gates for a boat. If you go there around 7 pm, you can catch the train bridge turn around.
  • What a cool place to visit! It's great for families, with kids over 6-7 years old. This area has so much history to it. The cost is $31 in 2019, for a two+ hours tour. It takes you through the Soo Locks, as the actual 600'-1013' ships go through! Quite an experience
  • Was fun to see the Soo locks. Would be great if they had the museum open longer in the evening. I always enjoy going out there and then going over the walk bridge to White Fish Island. Unfortunately most of the trails have been washed away because of the high water levels we are having this year.
  • Beautiful place to go to on a summer's day, can bike, drive or walk there. Have lovely, scenic trails on whitefish Island, on the other side of the canal. Can walk across the canal bridge, and sometimes watch as they drain the canal to open the doors to let boats or kayakers through. They sometimes host events here too, which is nice in the summer. I highly recommend the trails on whitefish Island,they are easy, accessible, and great to see up close the rapids.
  • We toured the Soo Locks, and it was amazing. The tour guides were very informative, and going through the locks was very fun. My 6 year old and 3 year old even had fun, despite being on the boat for 2 hours.
