Lets go canoe camping in eastern NC one more time before the ticks, chiggers and mosquitoes start swarming. We will canoe or kayak the ditch canal to the Great Dismal Swamp reservation (aka campground). This is a 3.5 mile paddle. Once at the reservation, you will be able to explore Lake Drummond (one of 2 natural lakes in VA). Best part of the trip is that there are no fees for camping!
As a bonus, you should canoe/kayak at Merchant's Millpond on the way back home!
REQUIREMENTS: Each participant must have their own canoe or kayak! There are no rentals at the launch point
Each participant must have their own camping equipment
Each participant must be self sufficient!
LOGISTICS: It is a 3.5 hour drive to the trailhead
