The Nanticoke is a wonderful river for recreation, education, nature study, and simple solitude. It has a rich history of Native Americans, tall ships, steamboats, slave running, piracy, and the Underground Railroad. Some of the northernmost, natural stands of bald cypress trees on the Atlantic Coast are found within the Nanticoke watershed. The Nanticoke has the highest concentration of Bald Eagles in the northeastern United States.
