Camp Chickahominy Lake

Chickahominy Lake is a 1230-acre water supply reservoir located along the New Kent-Charles City county line. This impoundment of the Chickahominy River was completed in 1943 with the construction of a low-head dam known locally as Walkers Dam. A fish ladder constructed into the dam allows for the passage of anadromous fish such as blueback herring and striped bass. The City of Newport News draws water from Chickahominy Lake and has been responsible for the recent repairs and renovations to Walkers Dam. A new, manually operated boat lock at the dam is operational to allow boat traffic to move between the lake and river. The new fish ladder was constructed near the northern end of the dam to replace the old one that was located on the southern side. Website
