Little Creek Reservoir Park Boat Launch and Park Store Temporarily Close

LCRP_launch_store_close_FLASH

The Little Creek Reservoir Park boat launch is closed until further notice. Low water levels have impacted the launching of all watercraft vessels including boats, kayaks and canoes. Once water levels have risen to a safe and feasible level, facilities will reopen. The Park store is also closed as the hub of watercraft rentals. Pier fishing is permitted with caution of the low water level. Little Creek Reservoir is a major water storage facility for the peninsula. No reopening period has been estimated due to continued dry weather and the drawdown of the reservoir as a water source. 

Little Creek Reservoir Park patrons who would like a refund of their annual ramp pass or kayak/canoe dry storage units should email josh.bew@jamescitycountyva.gov or call 757-207-0880. Time left on the pass or unit will be prorated. Also note, boat launch pass holders who choose to keep their Little Creek passes can use them at the County’s other boat launch sites - Chickahominy Riverfront Park, 1350 John Tyler Highway and the James City County Marina, 2054 Jamestown Road. Brickyard Landing Park, 990 Brickyard Road  and Diascund Reservoir Park, 9551 Diascund Reservoir Road, also feature boat launch sites at no cost. 

Little Creek Reservoir is owned and operated by the City of Newport News. Recreational activities at the Park are managed by James City County. For information on the reservoir and water capacities, please call Newport News Waterworks at 757-926-1000.
