Wagon Rides

Hop aboard the Dismal Swamp Express, an open-air wagon, for a 2-mile round trip, narrated ride along Canal Road. See the park's liquor still and lighter boat replicas and maybe even some interesting birds or other wildlife! The ride lasts 45 minutes to an hour and is filled on a first come, first served basis. If the weather is questionable or you have a large group, please call the office at 252-771-6593 in advance. Insect repellent is recommended. Bring snacks and water if you want them.
