Powhatan State Park

Virginia's Newest State Park

Virginia's Newest State Park

Powhatan State Park on the Historic James, opening in the summer of 2013, is Virginia's newest state park. Located on the edge of the James River in the northwest corner of Powhatan County the park offers 1565 acres of a diverse habitat for wildlife from open fields to wonderful upland hardwood forests. The goal in creating the park was to provide access to state park facilities in central Virginia and to create both day-use and overnight facilities on the James River.

The park has about 2.5-mile (4.0 km) of James River waterfront accessible by a canoe slide launch. Fishing access to the river bank is limited because of high bluffs, but easier access is being worked on. Visitors launching a canoe or kayak from the park may enjoy a 5-mile float down river to the Maidens boat launch. The park has five trails open. These total about 7.3-mile (11.7 km) of multi-use (hiking, biking, horse riding) trails through a number of diverse habitats including field edge, upland pine and mature hardwoods.
