You'll find Powhatan State Park in the northwest corner of Powhatan County on the historic James River. The park has diverse wildlife habitat, from open fields to upland hardwood forests. Guests can use the park's car-top boat slide to get in the river. Other amenities, including a canoe-in campground, multi-use trails and wildlife observation areas, are being developed.

Powhatan State Park was the vision of many in the Powhatan County community and several members of the general assembly. In 2003, 1,564 acres were transferred from the Department of Juvenile Justice to the Department of Conservation and Recreation for the development of a park. It would fill a need in the central Virginia area for a state park with access to the James River and with day and overnight facilities. So far, phase I of the park's master plan, written in 2007, is done.
