FAQ

  • Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Tarkine Forest Adventures at Dismal Swamp a National Park?

    No. Tarkine Forest Adventures is a family operated business.

    How long does it take to walk through the maze boardwalks?

    Some people take 40 minutes some take all day. It depends on what your interests are and what you wish to experience.

    Are the walks difficult to negotiate?

    No even a modest level of mobility is enough to see all there is to see.

    Is the slide safe?

    In six years of operation under current management there has not been a single injury. In fact, even though we have trained First Aid people on site the most we have had to do is apply a bandaid!
