In the middle of the Chowan River lies Holladay Island, named for Thomas Holladay, who first owned the island back in 1730. There are five campsites on the island, but Holladay Island is unique. A cypress swamp makes up the “island,” and the “campground” is really several elevated wooden platforms to keep you and your gear out of the swampland. The boat launch listed above is only suitable for canoes and kayaks. Motorized boats are welcome to camp at Holladay Island as well, and a boat ramp for them is located less than 0.2 mile southeast on Cannon’s Ferry Road (SR 1231), before reaching the canoe launch.
