Alright folks, there is some great kayaking to be had in the area around Dameron Marsh, but as of yet the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) has rebuffed the idea of a kayak put in point at the preserve.
Several people who are working on creating a watertrail in Northumberland and myself have contacted the appropriate people, but that is not enough. We need the public at large who enjoy kayaking to show that the interest is out there in order for the DCR to be motivated to make an access point at Dameron Marsh.
Currently there is a gated road at the preserve which runs within a few feet of the water, which could be turned into an access point with minimal damage to surrounding vegitation.
If you want to see more kayaking available in cool spots in the Northern Neck please write to the following DCR stewards expressing your intrest in and support for a new kayak access point at Dameron Marsh. In the past community interest has shown the DCR what the public wants and they do react to input :
