About Little Creek Reservoir Park


This 996-acre scenic park is a fisherman's paradise! Little Creek Reservoir offers year-round fishing, boating and picnicking and features a concession facility, playground, soft mulch trail and a shelter with grills.

Attention Patrons
Newport News Waterworks has initiated a controlled, partial drawdown of Little Creek Reservoir. At this time, we plan to draw the level down to an elevation of 50 feet over the course of the next month. We expect to reach an elevation of 55 feet within the next week. The drawdown is a necessary precautionary measure resulting from the recent progression of seepage issues at Little Creek Dam.

Please use caution while boating/fishing in the Reservoir.

Fishing


The fishing is great! The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries recognized one Little Creek Reservoir Park patron as the 2015 Angler of the Year. The striped bass, 32 pounds and 42 inches, caught in the reservoir was the largest officially registered striped bass with the Virginia Angler Recognition Program for 2015.



Boat Motors

Electric trolling motors are the only motors permitted on the reservoir. Electric motors are available to rent at our Guest Services Office. Visit our Park Fees page for more information about rental fees.
