Fall Update from Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center Director, Sarah Hill
The Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center is located adjacent to the Dismal Swamp State Park, offering trails, exhibits and ongoing programs in Camden County, NC. Docks are provided by the Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center, A CRUISERS NET SPONSOR and a NC DOT Rest Area facility. See September 16 Update.
Hope you had a great weekend! We are starting to see an uptick in boating traffic along the canal as well as the beginning of some fall colors appearing. Boaters have reported some patches of duckweed near the South Mills drawbridge and lock, but at this time no major issues. We’ll keep you updated if something changes. Our neighbors at the Dismal Swamp State Park remain closed to visitors due to construction. The park’s pedestrian bridge was removed from the water last week to be worked on.
Canal is open to traffic with locks operating on their normal schedule. We look forward to great fall season and appreciate everything you do to keep boaters updated & ready to cruise the Dismal Swamp Canal!
Please let us know if you have any questions or we can assist in anyway.
