York River Preserve
The 2,700± acre York River Preserve is located approximately 20 minutes northeast of Williamsburg along the western shore of the York River and 25 miles from the river’s confluence with the Chesapeake Bay. The York fronts the property for over 3.5 miles and offers boating access and expansive views eastward for nearly 2 miles across open water. YRP is buffered by Ware Creek and Philbates Creek, as well as a vast, intact saltwater marsh complex that offers waterfowl hunting, fishing, and other water-based activities. York River Preserve is 45 minutes from Richmond, the capital of Virginia, and 2.5 hours from Washington, DC.
