Dismal Swamp Canal and Locks are Open, 10/12
Despite the passage of Hurricane Michael through the area, the canal and locks are open, according to our good friend, Matt the Bridge Tender in Chesapeake City. The Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center Docks and information are provided at the Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center, A CRUISERS’ NET SPONSOR and a NC DOT Rest Area facility, located adjacent to the Dismal Swamp State Park, offering trails, exhibits and ongoing programs in Camden County, NC.
I just checked with Deep Creek Locks (Friday 10/12 at 8:55 AM) and they said the Dismal Swamp Canal route is open. They recommend a draft of no more than 6 feet.
