About Little Creek Reservoir Park
This 996-acre scenic park is a fisherman's paradise! Little Creek Reservoir offers year-round fishing and picnicking and features a concession facility, playground, soft mulch trail and a shelter with grills.
The Little Creek Reservoir Park boat launch has reopened. Staff will continue to monitor water levels in the reservoir, and may close the boat launch if levels are too low to safely use the ramp. The County also offers boat launch sites at Chickahominy Riverfront Park and the James City County Marina, Brickyard Landing Park and Diascund Reservoir Park also feature boat launch sites at no cost. For more information, please call 757-259-5360.
The fishing is great! The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries recognized one Little Creek Reservoir Park patron as the 2015 Angler of the Year. The striped bass, 32 pounds and 42 inches, caught in the reservoir was the largest officially registered striped bass with the Virginia Angler Recognition Program for 2015.
Electric trolling motors are the only motors permitted on the reservoir. Electric motors are available to rent at our Guest Services Office. Visit our Park Fees page for more information about rental fees.
Shelter & Boat Rentals

Enjoy a 1-mile hike along the multi-use trail to take in nature and local wildlife.
Tents, Inflatables, Generators and Other
Single, free standing tents, up to 16’x16’, are permitted in open space within the park, but not permitted within 100’ of picnic shelters, the playground, sports courts, parking lot, pedestrian paths or on the patio. Tents must be anchored per manufacturer’s recommendations, with tie downs marked in a noticeable manner and may not be combined with other tents. Use of tents larger than 16’x16’, inflatables, generators, petting zoos or any amusement attraction, towable smoker/grill or fryers, or other large equipment will require a Special Park Use Permit and additional fees, and approval will be based on date, size, scope of the event and any conflicts the event may have on public usage of the park.
