Rare opportunity to own a private island  along the C&O Canal. The chain of 3 islands, a Potomac River Archipelago,  consisting of 108 +/- acres is ideal for the outdoors man who enjoys recreation, camping, hunting, fishing and boating.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Located in Washington County Maryland just down stream from Dam # 5,  the islands can be accessed from either the West Virginia or Maryland side of the Potomac River. 

These islands are some of the few close in to Washington, DC on the Potomac River  that are still privately-owned and currently unnamed.

 

 

 The Islands feature mature Willow and Sycamore trees, and sandy beaches.  The islands and surrounding river banks are nesting grounds for Mallard Ducks, Canadian Geese and Blue Heron.

Directions to the site you would take:

Interstate -70 W to Exit Rt 68, Turn Left At Bottom Of Exit, Approx 1 Mile To Right On Dam #5 Rd To Potomac River / C&O Canal Tow Path, Use Plat To Identify Location Of Island Down Stream From Dam # 5 In River / You also need a boat to access the islands.

Wow! That would be a wonderful place to use to just get away and wander. Can you build or put a camper on the property?

The Seller indicates that,  included are rights to use a live-in trailer on the island, that are grandfathered-in. How ever that would need to be confirmed by Washington County.

Thanks Debe Maxwell, the Islands are 100% in flood plain , more suitable for a politician from DC to get some R&R and walk in the woods. Happy New Year!
