Cushwa Basin

Developed as a major point for loading/unloading on the Canal, the Cushwa Basin was one of the few places on the Canal that a boat could turn around.

Sitting on the Canal is a restored warehouse, dating back to the 1800s, that is now headquarters to a visitor’s center for the C&O Canal.

The Cushwa Basin is also a great point of entry for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and fishing.
