The Perquimans, a Paddler’s Dream

Record #:
The Perquimans River meanders through northeastern North Carolina into Albermarle Sound. Perquimans, meaning “Land of Beautiful Women,” was named by the area’s earliest inhabitants, the Yeopim Indians, a branch of the Algonquins. The river has a rich history, offers diverse wildlife and recreation experiences, and much of the Perquimans is still largely undiscovered.
