Otter Creek Campground - MP 60.8
The Parkway’s Otter Creek area provides a campground with 45 tent and 24 trailer sites, restrooms, water, and a campfire circle. Many of the campsites are along the banks of Otter Creek.
The 3.5-mile Otter Creek Trail follows the creek down to the James River Visitor Center. The trail can also be accessed from the next three overlooks to the south at MP 61.4, 62.5 and 63.1. At the visitor center the James River Canal Trail will take you to the restored James River and Kanawha Canal Lock that was built between 1845-51. When completed the canal had 90 locks and went from Richmond to Buchanan, Virginia.
Area hikes include: Trail of Trees, Otter Creek, Otter Lake Loop and James River Canal Trails.
