The Erie Canal is a historic canal in upstate New York that runs east-west between the Hudson River and Lake Erie.

- Erie Canal

The Champlain Canal is a 60 mi canal in New York that connects the Hudson River to the south end of Lake Champlain.

- Champlain Canal

It was simultaneously constructed with the Erie Canal for use by commercial vessels, fully opening in 1823.

- Champlain Canal

The Hudson was also the eastern outlet for the Erie Canal, which, when completed in 1825, became an important transportation artery for the early 19th century United States.

- Hudson River

It connects the three other canals in the New York State Canal System: the Champlain, Oswego, and Cayuga–Seneca.

- Erie Canal

Here the river has an elevation of 200 ft. Just south in Fort Edward, the river reaches its confluence with the Champlain Canal, which historically provided boat traffic between New York City and Montreal and the rest of Eastern Canada via the Hudson, Lake Champlain and the Saint Lawrence Seaway.

The New York State Canal System (formerly known as the New York State Barge Canal) is a successor to the Erie Canal and other canals within New York.

Currently, the 525 mi system is composed of the Erie Canal, the Oswego Canal, the Cayuga–Seneca Canal, and the Champlain Canal.

The Erie Canal connects the Hudson River to Lake Erie; the Cayuga–Seneca Canal connects Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake to the Erie Canal; the Oswego Canal connects the Erie Canal to Lake Ontario; and the Champlain Canal connects the Hudson River to Lake Champlain.

Because of both Lake Champlain's connection to the St. Lawrence Seaway via the Richelieu River and the existence of the Champlain Canal, Lake Champlain is sometimes referred to as "The Sixth Great Lake."

It is connected to the Hudson River by the Champlain Canal.

Lake Champlain has been connected to the Erie Canal via the Champlain Canal since the canal's official opening on September 9, 1823: the same day as the opening of the Erie Canal from Rochester on Lake Ontario to Albany.
