  • Rented kayaks and paddled down the canal. Beautiful!! Three hiking trails. The one through the swamp is raised wood walkway. We had a great day here!
  • An astounding place I had never heard of. It's a massive wild, swampy area that sits on the border of North Carolina and VA. We stopped on the way to Chincoteague Island because I just had to see a place called "The Great Dismal Swamp". It has a nice clean visitor center, with displays and information and lucky for us, T shirts. Worth a longer visit than we could give it.
  • The trails are great place to walk, run, or bike with the family and it being free is a huge plus.
  • Nice place, good loops and some good plaques and exercise points. It was a good place to take the dog.
  • Great scenery, bikes and canoes for 10 dollars an hour. Watch out for the wildlife, you've been warned.
