Virginia, Dismal Swamp Route Update

Written by Chuck Baier

Good Morning,

The Dismal Swamp Canal is open to navigation and locks are operating on their normal schedule.  We are also happy to report no duckweed in the canal. Recent boaters have passed along wonderful comments and experiences cruising through the canal this year. We love seeing boaters coming our way, and want everyone to have a positive experience. The Dismal Swamp Welcome Center is open and staff is available to answer questions, provide resources and assist the public.  The Dismal Swamp State Park, located adjacent to the center, offers trails, a boardwalk and exhibits.

Many thanks,
