Kayak Excursion of the Great Dismal Swamp’s Lake Drummond

Experience the unusual and breathtaking Lake Drummond, a 3,108-acre bowl-shaped lake located near the center of the Great Dismal Swamp. The larger of only two naturally occurring lakes in Virginia, on windless days on the lake, the water appears smooth as glass as the horizon disappears into the sky above. Lake Drummond stands only 18 feet above sea level, and though it is three miles wide, it is only six to seven feet deep, allowing great cypresses to rise from its still, shallow waters. Tannic acid from forest vegetation stains the water.

Guided kayak excursions are facilitated by a water adventures outfitter with years of experience. All equipment is included with registration fee. Sunscreen, insect repellent, and comfortable clothing recommended. Excursions are approximately 2 hours. Fee: $40 per person. Participants must be at least 10 years of age or older. Participants 17 and younger must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Participants are encouraged to bring a snack and bottled water.

Bus departs the Suffolk Visitor Center, 524 North Main Street at 9:30am.
