Welcome to Powhatan State Park
You'll find Powhatan State Park in the northwest corner of Powhatan County on the historic James River. The park has diverse wildlife habitat, from open fields to upland hardwood forests. Guests can use the park's car-top boat slide to get in the river. Other amenities include a canoe-in campground, multi-use trails, wildlife observation areas and a playground.  The park has three large picnic shelters. Two are surrounded by grass and woods in the upland section of the park, and one is next to the river. Each has eight picnic tables and a large charcoal grill. None has electricity or water. Parking fees are not included with the shelter rental fees and must be paid upon entering the park. A canoe-in campground, accessible by the James River, has primitive sites (no electricity or water) and is open from March to December. Nearby Bear Creek Lake, Pocahontas, Holliday Lake and Twin Lakes state parks also have camping.

The image on this site is not correct there is now swimming beach ta Powhatan State Park. A newer state park, but mre nature based than people based, so bring your kayak or fishing gear, hike the trails and enjoy the park year round.

Programs the family will enjoy are ongoing.

There is a paddle in campground. I recommend a visit.
