See Lake Drummond at the far end of the Washington Trail deep inside the Dismal Swamp. Take the 8-mile round trip with us to the rarely seen lake Drummond.

This lake was carved out by an ancient fire that burned an incredible volume of peat to create a crater.

The roads and canals were constructed in colonial times to extract the cypress trees. Now, this is a pristine and protected wilderness.
