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.
