Choose from an assortment of camping opportunities or enjoy a picnic beside the millpond. The remarkable surroundings of Merchants Millpond State Park lend themselves to a variety of activities.

The Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is also nearby. It was established in 1974 to protect the unique ecosystem of the Great Dismal Swamp. It includes over 111,000-acres of forested wetlands, with Lake Drummond, a 3,100-acre lake, at its heart. The Great Dismal Swamp has long been considered a place of natural beauty, mystery, and legend. The swamp is an integral part of the cultural history of the region and remains a place of refuge for both wildlife and people. The eastern side of the refuge is bound by the Dismal Swamp Canal, operated by the Army Corps of Engineers. Along the western border of the refuge is access to over 30 miles of hiking trails in the northwest portion of the refuge. Cypress, black gum, maple, Atlantic white cedar, and pine are the predominant tree species found on the refuge and support the wildlife within. Many mammal species, including black bear, bobcat, otter, and weasel along with over 70 species of reptiles and amphibians call the swamp home. More than 200 bird species can be seen at the swamp throughout the year, while 96 of those are known to nest on the refuge.
