Description

Belle Isle State Park is located at the confluence of Deep Creek and the Rappahannock River in Lancaster County, Virginia (Figure 1). The 733 acre site has seven miles of frontage on the north shore of the Rappahannock, and it borders both Deep Creek and Mulberry Creek. It features diverse tidal and nontidal wetlands, lowland marshes, tidal coves and upland forests. It is a relatively new state park with a new boat ramp, picnic amenities, and restrooms. The park is slated for further recreational and historic development including a "deep" water access from the Rappahannock River into the mouth of Deep Creek and then to the boat ramp area.
