Featherstone National Wildlife Refuge

Wildlife Refuge

This National Wildlife Refuge on the southwest side of Occoquan Creek is accessible only by boat and a pedestrian trail from the Virginia Railway Express Rippon station. It consists of 325 acres of woodland and freshwater tidal marshes. Due to a railroad line that crosses the refuge, there is limited public access. There is a non-motorized boat landing at the southern edge of Farm Creek. To download a fact sheet and map of the refuge, select this link.
