  Last Lock Park

Matt,
I'm away at the moment (putting plenty of scratches on the SRT ), so I can't check my notes. But I've done that trip. And Andy Lee did the whole James and has extensive notes on line that you may be able to search up.

Regardless, about Last Lock, we found it repulsive. There is road access, so you are very likely to find Bubba there with his fishing family and RV parked right on the river. Secondly, thee are major highways and a train trestle right across the river, so the noise level is loud.

We'd planned on camping at Last Lock but after stopping there we proceeded down river to find a gravel bar on river left and camped there.

That outfitter made it plain he would not provide us info unless we were doing business with them. They have some property along the river where they rent campsites and will tell you that's the only place on the river where you can camp. Obviously, that's BS.
