Historic Port of Falmouth
Located off River Road, this area is a wonderful place to enjoy the beauty of the Rappahannock River. The area is a great place to fish (VA fishing license required), and it is equipped with picnic areas. Portable restroom facilities are available from Memorial Day - Labor Day. This park also holds historical significance and the entry way for ships and commerce during the colonial era and the crossing area for thousands of enslaved people escaping to freedom in Falmouth beginning in April of 1862.
