Glide along the amber colored waters of the historic Dismal Swamp Canal in your own canoe or kayak. A boat ramp near the parking area gives access to the canal waters. Don't forget your life vests!
Or rent a canoe or kayak from the park. One and two person kayaks are available. See the Fees/FAQS/Rules page for rental information.
Fishing is available at Dismal Swamp State Park; there are plenty of fresh water fish, especially in warmer weather. State fishing licenses are required and the rules of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and Marine Fisheries apply.
A picnic is a great way to enjoy a day out-of-doors.
