Virginia: James River State Park
Posted on Thursday, September 01 @ 13:01:50 MST by iljiana

Horse Rentals & Day Ride Trails Route 1, Box 787,
Gladstone, VA 24553
phone (434) 933-4355

General Information: Park is open for day use and overnight camping. Honor parking at posted daily rate. Hiking trails, picnic shelters, comfort stations and boat launch.

James River State Park is one of the state's newest parks. The park offers access to nearly 20 miles of hiking/biking/horseback riding trails. There are restrooms in picnic areas. No water is available in the campgrounds, but potable water is available at all five picnic shelters.

The primitive aspect of this park's camping must be considered. Still, if you like to fish, prefer a more primitive, less crowded setting, and enjoy canoeing and river activities, make note of this camping opportunity. If you don’t mind roughing it a little, you’ll love the park.

Location: Buckingham County. From U.S. 60 West, turn right onto Route 605 at the James River Bridge. Travel seven miles, then turn left onto Route 606.


From Richmond, travel west on highway. Take Rt. 60 towards Amherst for about 60 miles. Turn right onto Rt. 605, and then go 7 miles to the park entrance on the left.

From Lynchburg, travel east on 460 to Appomattox. Take the Rt. 26 exit (Business 460). Turn left at stop sign onto Rt. 26. Continue about 12 miles to stop sign at Rt. 60 and go straight across 60 onto Rt. 605. Continue 7 miles to the park entrance on left.

From Farmville, travel Rt. 15 north to Dillwyn, Sprouses Corner. Turn left onto Rt. 60 west and continue for about 25 miles. Turn right on Rt. 605 and go about 7 miles to park entrance on left.

None, but visitors may bring their own horses to use bridle trails. A Coggins Certificate must accompany each horse.

Park History: One of the state's newest parks, James River is still under development. It formally opened to the public June 20, 1999. There are 22 primitive campsites by the river and another seven by Branch Pond. The park features approximately 20 miles of multiple use trails (hike, bike, horse), three fishing ponds, three restrooms, six picnic shelters and a concrete boat ramp. Wheelchair accessible features include the Green Hill Pond Trail and wagon rides.
