DAVIS LOCK STATION Davis lock is situated four miles upstream from Jones Falls. A single lock lifts the boats nine feet from Sand Lake to an artificial channel which leads to Opinicon Lake. Prior to the construction of the Canal, Davis Mills was a quiet community surrounding a mill operation. It is believed that Walter Davis, owner of the mill, set up his operation around 1800. Like so many other mill sites, Davis Mills was destroyed by the construction of the Canal. Lockstation services: parking, charts and permit sales, on-site identification, picnic areas, day use docking, boater camping and overnight mooring. Swimming, fishing and boat watching are here.
