Great Dismal Swamp’s Underground Railroad Pavilion Tour

The Great Dismal Swamp has long been known for its impenetrability, as a place where travelers could easily lose their way. Yet in the early centuries of American history, many of the people who vanished into the swamp were lost by their own choice. The swamp was a sanctuary for thousands of fugitive African American slaves. Transportation available from Suffolk Visitor Center via the Tourism bus. Tour is an hour long and starts at 10:00 a.m.  Bus boards at 9:30 a.m. and departs from the Suffolk Visitor Center. Face masks must be worn while on bus and while on refuge property. Cost is $10 adults; $8 seniors (60+), military, and children ages 3-12. Call the Suffolk Visitor Center at 757.514.4130 to reserve your spot.
