Chowan Game Land is 30 acres of Tidal Swamp Forest located on Pembroke Creek outside of Edenton, NC. Management consists only of land protection and boundary posting. Chowan Swamp Game Land totals 31,372 acres in Bertie, Gates, and Hertford counties.

The Chowan River proper originates at the North Carolina-Virginia border where the Blackwater and Nottoway rivers meet. Narrow and lively at its source, the 50-mile-long Chowan flows southeast past such small towns as Winton and Colerain before broadening to nearly two miles wide where it meets the Albemarle Sound near Edenton. Along with the Roanoke River, it supplies most of the fresh water to the sound, which is part of the second-largest estuary system in the United States (the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuary).
