Scottsville Site Information – Please note info about ramps and camping!

On Wednesday, June 20th the historic and beautiful Town of Scottsville will once again host the James River Batteau Festival, and James River Reeling & Rafting is once again graciously allowing the JRBF to use their private riverfront property during the stop in Scottsville. (The property up-river from the gate at the public boat ramp parking lot)

In an effort to keep this festival space as safe and accessible as possible, the following will be enforced: (PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST!)

• The campground/festival grounds will be restricted to foot traffic only and vehicles limited exclusively to JRBF vendors, JRR&R staff/customers throughout the entire day.

• ONLY JRR&R CUSTOMERS WILL BE PERMITTED TO DOCK AT THE JRR&R RAMP. (The small ramp river left beside the Scottsville Festival activities.) Followers of the JRBF, canoers, kayakers, tubers and all other non-wooden boat traffic, including those that pay their fee to VCNS WILL NOT be permitted to dock at the JRR&R ramp. Please allow space for JRR&R paying customers to exit the water. Neither will vehicle traffic be permitted through the entry gate to retrieve any canoes, kayaks or other watercraft not associated with JRR&R. This has become a safety hazard with growing public crowds that we all wish to avoid.


PLEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS OF THE SITE SECURITY STAFF!

• ALL NON-BATTEAU TRAFFIC WILL BE DIVERTED DOWNSTREAM TO THE PUBLIC LAUNCH WHERE THEY CAN EXIT THE RIVER.

• Camping will be available for VCNS followers at the old Scottsville school BUT THE SHOWERS AT THE SCHOOL WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL AFTER 6 PM. Others who want to stay by the river could consider Horseshoe Flats.

The Scottsville stop is the mid-point of the JRBF and we want to thank JRR&R for the use of this beautiful site by the James!
