|Occoquan Hand Carry Launch
11430 Hinson Mill Ln.,
Manassas, VA 20112
|Hand carry launch site and access to the Occoquan River located below the Lake Jackson Dam. Users must carry boat 400 ft. down a trail to the river’s edge. The water may feature some small riffles for the first 200’ however the water in this area of the river is generally flat and slow moving. Users may prefer to use this site as a point of departure with plans to take out at another location downstream as paddling against the current and carrying a boat uphill up the trail can be difficult.|
