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. The drawdown is a necessary precautionary measure resulting from the progression of seepage issues at Little Creek Dam.
 Please use caution while boating/fishing in the Reservoir.


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.
