Hope you are well and had a wonderful summer!
Attaching a few images of September at the Dismal Swamp Canal. We are happy to report little to no duckweed throughout the canal. Boaters have reported seeing a few small patches at the locks, but all appears clear for the 22 mile distance. The Dismal Swamp State Park remains closed to visitors for construction ~ for the latest updates on the park’s status visit https://www.ncparks.gov/dismal-swamp-state-park/home .
We look forward to a beautiful and busy fall season along the waterway!
We are so appreciative of everything you do to keep everyone informed, which makes for an enjoyable boating experience.
