The swamp is open and it is a very nice trip. They should have completed the drag of the canal to get a lot of debris out. I was there a couple months ago and it was quite nice. The locks are very easy. You will be directed to a spot on the wall, then you throw a line to the attendant or tie off to a cleat. Slack is of course required but don't worry, the attendant will coach you. You can make a two day trip of it or do it in one day.
