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, picnic shelters and a playground.
Camping: 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.
