The NC side of the swamp was a bit of a let down. We took a nice walk on the boardwalk and then the canal road. We did get to see the mist roll in on the canal, that was neat.
You can rent canoes or bikes, or hike a little or a lot! Many choices to pick from! You have to cross the canal to get to the visitors center, which is very nice and packed with history. Plus, they offer wagon rides and ranger led canoe trips, check the schedule! Park itself is free!
Have been there numerous times. Great staff and interesting small educational building. A lot of hands on experiences. The rentals are cheap and the water flat and calm. Gets a little buggy in the evening, so spray up.
The Dismal Swamp State Park offers an informative visitor center, plenty of biking/walking trails. Park admission is free, attendants are friendly and knowledgeable.
