Boaters will launch at the Dismal Swamp State Park canal bridge in South Mills, NC, and paddle at their own pace to Ballahack Road Boat Ramp in Chesapeake, Va. The fee is $45 per person and includes a “grab-and-go” breakfast, picnic lunch at the end of the journey and your choice of a T-shirt or hat. This event is limited to 375 paddlers. Spots fill up quick, so hurry and reserve your place! The event is a joint effort by NC’s Dismal Swamp State Park, Chesapeake Parks, Recreation and Tourism, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Camden County TDA and the Dismal Swamp Canal Welcome Center.
