With Captain Tracy piloting the boat, just past the Village of Adamson on the Crooked River we came upon Michigan/s smallest lock (which I am trying to determine if this is America’s smallest lock). It raises and lowers the water level 3 to 12 inches between the Crooked River and Crooked Lake. The lock is only 60 feet long and 17 feet wide and just 7 feet deep. Only two pontoon boats can fit in the lock at one time. I was laughing because one canoe was coming through the lock when we pulled up.
