Public Boating Access

Due to recent heavy rains, many boat ramps in Virginia experienced a rather rare flooding event that may have created hazardous conditions. Mud and debris may be present on parking lots, docks and ramps. Please use caution when launching and retrieving boats and visiting our boating and fishing access sites. Our staff are addressing these issues as water levels recede and are cleaning and repairing sites as quickly as possible. Continued high water at many sites means it will take some time to address all access issues. We appreciate your patience and understanding. — posted May 22, 2018
