The Crooked River Locks
   If you are entering Crooked River from Crooked Lake the #77 maker will show you the entrance. The locks were built by the Army Corps of Engineers to hold the level of Crooked Lake up after the Crooked river was dredged for navigation. It will lower or raise you 1 to 3 feet at most.
   The video left is a short clip going through the locks from both directions.
