Powhatan Creek Park-James City County
The facility is part of the Chesapeake Gateways Network and provides access to the James River at Jamestown Island,
including scenic views of Historic Jamestowne. Powhatan Creek is listed on the Natural Resources Inventory as the most biodiverse creek on the peninsula. Scenic views of tidal marshes and an abundance of wildlife highlight trips on this beautiful waterway. The facility consists of a small non-motorized boat/canoe kayak launch with parking for 20 vehicles, and five observation/fishing piers.
Powhatan Creek Trail is not part of Powhatan Creek Parks and is a separate trail within the County park system. When fully completed, it will link to the Virginia Capital Trail, the Greensprings Trail and Clara Byrd Baker Elementary School.
