    • Deep Creek Cove Now Posted as NO TRESPASSING, Northern Entrance to Dismal Swamp Canal

      Our thanks to William Spaur for bringing this to our attention. Deep Creek Basin is on the south shore of the Dismal Swamp Route east of Deep Creek Lock.

      The COVE on Deep Creek, the Deep Creek Basin, is now being developed by RYAN HOMES and has been named BRYAN’S COVE. The land and the water are now NO TRESPASSING.

      Deep Creek Cove is near the junction of the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River and Deep Creek waterway, Chesapeake VA. It has always been a favorite anchorage for boats transiting the Dismal Swamp Canal. It is a borrow pit vintage 1962 to develop Interstate 64. It is the size of a city block and connected to Deep Creek by a narrow channel.

        I thought I truly hated lawyers until it became a photo… Then I realized I hate a developers far more.
        I would be very surprised to find out that this is a legal restriction.

        I believe all navigable water in NC is public…not restrictions. Is Deep Creek Basin in VA or NC?

        Editor’s note: Deep Creek Basin is in Virginia

        Is this legitimate or just another case of a landowner overstepping his bounds ?
