Site CPL02: Deep Bottom Park
Deep Bottom Creek feeds into the James River here, forming a rich river bottom with sycamore, oak, and pine. Birdlife abounds, with common species range from blue grosbeaks to bald eagles and everything in between. Nesting boxes for birds such as prothonotary warbler add to the value of this site, as does its boat launch, which allows for exploration by kayak or canoe.
From the Osborne Pike Boat Landing, return to Osborne Turnpike, and turn right. Osborne Turnpike becomes Kingsland Road. Proceed 4.4 miles to Deep Bottom Road. After 1.2 miles, turn right into Deep Bottom Park.
