This is a great place to hang out on a sunny day. The weather was perfect and there are plenty of pinic locations, trashcans and CLEAN bathrooms.

If you enjoy bird watching or just getting out on the water for a little while, rent a kayak to see a different view of nature. The rates are reasonable and it is a great way for the kids to get out some energy!

Although now being run by James City, this is still a great place to rent paddleboards, kayaks and bikes. The staff is friendly and helpful. First timers should go with Powhatan Creek, more experienced can try the James and go right past the historical settlement

If I remember correctly it was $24 for two bikes for 2 hours. I remember thinking it wasn't particularly expensive.
