This is the place to pause after a hectic day. The Riverwalk gives you a spectacular view of the York River and its beach. Little shops and restaurants are here too, but the treasure is the beautiful view of the river.

Once there for any time other than early in the morning or your very lucky many of the free parking spaces are gone on the weekend. However, there is a lot of free parking around the area. My recommendation is park on the shuttle route and to take the free shuttle to where you want to visit.

Beautiful location, trees, river, pond, hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, canoeing - it has it all on the shores of the York River about 10 miles east of Norge (Williamsburg, VA).

This State Park offers so much. We did the sunset canoe. We had a great tour guide, Brad. He guided us through the York River with stories & history. It was so so pleasant. There was a group of Girl Scouts on our tour who were getting their "canoe" badge. It was so pleasant & easy. We had gone there... More

We went to a wedding at the Amphitheater and it was beautiful, just as the bride was. The platform was situated right on the river and it was surrounded by pine trees and forest. Very beautiful Park

We went to the park for a wedding and loved it! The views are stunning! It is clean and well maintained. There is a $4 parking fee, but they gave us a gift card for a free Subway sandwich.

Staying in the area at a nearby RV park we decided to explore and took our small dog and a picnic to the park. We used the honor system to pay the $3.00 parking fee which is a small price to pay for such a nice park. We found a path down to the river which was a bit overgrown... More

Lunch at River Walk was great…more on that later…The walk was enjoyable, how could it be otherwise with My Diane in hand? Cornwallis Cave? Now that was disappointing; poorly marked (we walked right by it the first time); public safety I understand, but not great explanation of the history (or anything else detailed) was annoying; disappointed in part, beaut area...

I have enjoyed having such a beautiful place so close by. A great destination for a motorcycle ride. The horse trails can keep you riding for hours on a nice spring or fall day.
