[ARCHIVED] Little Creek Reservoir Park Boat Launch and Park Store Temporarily Close

Little Creek_Ramp_Store_Closed_NEWS FLASH

The Little Creek Reservoir Park boat launch and Park Store are 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 closed as the hub of watercraft rentals. Pier fishing is permitted, using caution of the low water level. Little Creek Reservoir is a major water storage facility for the peninsula. The boat launch is anticipated to reopen in early 2024, dependent on water levels.

Little Creek Reservoir Park patrons who would like a refund of their annual ramp pass or kayak/canoe dry storage units should contact Josh Bew at 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 four other boat launch sites - Chickahominy Riverfront Park, 1350 John Tyler Hwy. and the James City County Marina, 2054 Jamestown Rd. The County’s free boat launch sites are located at Brickyard Landing Park, 990 Brickyard Rd. and Diascund Reservoir Park, 9551 Diascund Reservoir Rd.  

Little Creek Reservoir, 180 Lakeview Dr., is owned and operated by the City of Newport News. Recreational activities at the Park are managed by James City County. For information about the reservoir and water capacities, please call Newport News Waterworks at 757-926-1000.
