Dismal Swamp Canal
At this point you decide to take either the Dismal Swamp of the Virginia cut. We chose the dismal swamp since it is quieter and more scenic. The controlling depth is just 6.5 feet and we need 5.75, but we only bumped the bottom once and we think it was a submerged log. It was however beautiful.
