Powhatan Lakes - Facilities

The construction of the new dams between 2006 and 2008 allowed for the improvement and addition of facilities at each lake.

The new construction includes two new ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible fishing piers*, one on the upper lake and one on the lower lake which expand the fishing opportunities. Numerous Christmas tree habitat structures have been placed around each pier.

Two boat launch facilities have been improved with added courtesy piers*. No gasoline powered motors allowed.

New fishing and wildlife viewing trails have been constructed around the lower lake.

No bathroom facilities are located at the lakes, but there are numerous businesses located just minutes from the lakes on Route 60.

* Southside Electrical donated the use of their equipment and installed pilings for the piers.
