Strange, spooky, & undiscovered, False Cape, VA provides a unique paddling & camping experience. Early explorers confused the bay with Cape Henry, to their sad dismay. The shallow waters became a ship’s graveyard. Early colonials moved in and attempted to farm, but after a hundred years of having their fields and houses washed away during storms, they abandoned the region, leaving a mouldering church and a few crumbling houses. Today, the mile-wide strip of sand and trees that separates the bay from the Atlantic is home to nothing but a few wild pigs, a bunch of birds, and the occasional passing paddler.
