TRIP – Mattaponi River / York River
This public boat landing has a very large parking area – both for cars/trucks with trailers – and without. Parking should not be a problem on weekends and holidays. There were a few trucks there when I stopped in on a very hot Tuesday afternoon.
There is also a dock just up from the boat ramp for quick tie-ups to load or unload.
In addition to the public boat landing, there are 4 kayak launch sites spread around the town.
With so many launch points, it will take a few trips to really explore this area by kayak.
The town has a number of good restaurants, shops and a grocery store in case you need anything. There is a small motel if you plan to stay a few days.
You know what they say: The croakers are biting in West Point! Take a paddle out there soon and find out for yourself. Don’t forget your fishing license!
