The block building that houses the James City County Marina store and the Billsburg Brewery’s Tasting Room will undergo structural improvements beginning Dec. 14 through February 2023. The work will consist of installing a new support system for the second floor inside the Marina store. The Marina Store and Tasting Room will be closed while the work is being completed; however, Hampton Marine Services located in the connecting aluminum building will not be impacted.
The paddle craft launch area and boat ramp will remain open 24 hours/day. Boat ramp users should deposit boat ramp fees in the self-pay honor box located at the top of the boat ramp. There is no cost to use the paddle craft launch area. Bike and paddle craft rentals will be suspended until the Marina Store reopens. Bikers and paddlers may rent equipment at Chickahominy Riverfront Park, 1350 John Tyler Highway.
All calls to the Marina Store will automatically transfer to the Guests Service Office at Chickahominy Riverfront Park where park staff will be able to answer questions and take boat storage payments. However, callers can also dial the Guest Services Office directly at 757-258-5020. Marina boat storage payments may continue to be mailed to the James City County Marina, 2054 Jamestown Road, Williamsburg, VA 23185, and credit cards payments (a 2.95% convenience fee will apply) may be taken over the telephone at 757-258-5020. Cash payments must be made in person 8 a.m - 5 p.m. daily at Chickahominy Riverfront Park.
