Changes to Deep Bottom and Osborne Pike Boat Access SchedulesHenrico County Parks and Recreation will be closing the ramp at Deep Bottom Park at sunset beginning on September 27, 2021. To ensure continued access for night-time angling on the James River the Department of Wildlife Resources (DWR) will be opening the Osborne Landing Boat ramp to night-time launching effective immediately.


Deep Bottom Creek feeds into the James River here, forming a rich river bottom with sycamore, oak, and pine. Birdlife abounds, with common species range from blue grosbeaks to bald eagles and everything in between. Nesting boxes for birds such as prothonotary warbler add to the value of this site, as does its boat launch, which allows for exploration by kayak or canoe.


Physical Address: 9525 Deep Bottom Rd, Henrico, VA 23231
