The management area gains its name from the Chickahominy River which forms the area's eastern boundary. To the south, Morris Creek flows through the area and then along its southern boundary. Other smaller tidal creeks and marshy guts cut into the forests to provide additional wetland diversity. The upland, though mainly wooded with mixed hardwood and pine stands, also features cultivated, mowed and "old field" openings. The area's 5,217 acres are contiguous although there are some interior, private properties.

Enjoy shooting range, hunting, fishing, and wildlife photography.

Directions:
From route 5 east of Charles City Courthouse take route 623 north. Or from U.S. Route 60 at Providence Forge take State Highway 155 south; then left onto route 614, left again on 615 and bear right onto 623.
