Lassiter Swamp Canoe Trip

We will be taking a trip up into Lassiter Swamp.  This will be a 6 hour canoe trip, it takes 2 1/2 hours to get up to an island where we will stop for lunch, afterwards we will contiune to the big tree and then back  2 1/2 hours to the Merchants Millpond State Park Visitor Center.  We do ask that you bring your own lunch, a pair of knee boots.  This is a very intensive trip as we fight the current going and the wind on the way back.  If you have any questions or to register, call the park staff at 252 357 1191.
