If you have your own water craft or stand up paddle board and you want a ramp to launch onto the Rappahannock River, you can freely go to the city dock and there is free parking for your car and trailer. There is a lovely bulkhead to fish from and several piers. We do live in the tidal basin so the tide comes and goes from this location, further down on the river.
At times, there are kayak and SUP rentals available. I don’t know who they are or what their schedule is, but when they are there, you can rent some craft to enjoy!
